ME Squat/DL

Yesterday evening I did all the dynamic stretching stuff minus a lot of the running. Three games of basketball left me feeling beat up.

Lunchtime today: LifeFitness Treadmill: 5-min warmup, then 2 sets of 90 seconds running/90 seconds walking followed by 2 sets of 3 minutes running/3minutes walking. Running was done at 7.0 MPH, walking at 3.8 MPH. Mentally, I was trying to talk myself out of doing it but I failed. Good thing, because it was a good end to week 3 of this program.

Hoist Leg Press: 350x5, 415x5, 475x5, 535x5, 595x5, 610x5, 665x5x3. Did sets of 5 vice 3 and my legs were toasty. A portent of things to come next week?

Cybex Leg Curls: 130x5x5.

Romanian Deadlifts: 135x3, 155x3, 175x3, 195x3, 225x2x3. Cut it short on time, so I went heavier.

Situps w/25 lbs plate: 5 sets of 12

Flex Standing Calf Raise: 70x15x3

Looks like you got some good leg/back work in your evening workout. Where do you mainly feel rdl's?

I'm sure the RDLs after leg presses and curls were fun. Now that's one way to warm up the hams :)

Right now, my ass and hams are sore. Not so much from the leg presses first (my feet are a little lower and closer so as to engage my quads more), but because of the preexhausting effect of the leg curls. In this way, I have to use my hips more and contract my backside a lot harder just to lock out the RDLs.
