Great. Cold dried up and back to the gym. But wtf do you do if you’ve been out of action a sodding week? Carry on where you left off, that’s what.
Really into legs training lately so I decided to capitalise on that. I didn’t go too heavy (though I did manage a PB on the ‘fluff’ stuff later on as you’ll see), but concentrated on the basics of getting those quads back into the land of the living. Here we go… Saturday 23/4/16 – Legs:
1. Hack squat:
8x150 – 4 sets
5x200 – 4 sets
*Never started off on squats before, but I was waiting bloody ages for the incline press, so had to do something. Sodding place was rammed today.
2. Seated (horizontal) press:
10x200 – 4 sets
*Full stack from the off. Piece of p!ss, feels so easy now.
3. Incline press:
6x250 – 4 sets
25x150 high reps
*By this time I was very frustrated at hanging around so I virtually ordered
three skinny students off the machine. They had been malingering around it since I got to the gym on their phones, so enough was enough. Floydy comes along, loses it (unlike me) and just says “have you finished on here OR WHAT??”. “Sorry mate, they said – terrified of my demonic stare, and they went on their way”. C
ts all. These specky twats are going to be running my country one day. Says it all!
Anyway, so now I’d lost my ‘mantra’ and curtailed the press at 250x4, wanted so dearly to go massive today, but I was boiling
4. Reverse leg curl, seated:
6x70 – 4 sets
3x95 (former PB)
Went for the b’stard…and…3x100 full stack PB
*Whether or not it was the result of me being soooo angry at those nerds earlier on which fuelled my rage to produce some extra-terrestrial latent superstrength, I don’t know. But the stack was conquered for the first time. Back of the quads raging with power. Gotta love this stuff, haven’t you?
Felt like going and finding those geeks and buying them a coffee for unveiling some unearthly hidden might. Happy as a sandboy after that!
10. Ab crunches:
Rewarded myself with four pints of Wetherspoon’s best guest ales after that little lot.
Thanks for reading, hope your enjoying your weekends.
