Oooof, suits u sir! Todays workout was another killer. These higher rep medium/heavy weight squats are killing me, todays top weight was 85% of last years 1 rep max and boy did I feel them.
Although I only did one set of them, and they actually felt pretty good, the sets thereafter really whacked my legs, by the last set my quads were burning, but in a strangely nice sadistic way lol.
Anyhoo, here’s the workout I did tonight after another day of daffodil picking and farmers market de-erecting…

I decided to swap the dumbbell lunges with the calf and side raises, and my legs definitely felt better for it by the end of the workout, just have to see if my hammies feel any better tomorrow and Friday.
Looking forward to this Sundays weigh in and measurements. Although I don’t feel any bigger, I’m sure I must have put on some muscle in the last few weeks, if only a single pound lol. Fingers crossed though that my waist hasn’t increased, otherwise it means another look over my eating to see what can be tweaked.
I certainly feel stronger, which is always good, and my legs and shoulders do look bigger in the mirror, but hey ho, we’ll see come Sunday morning.
Until next time…
