Today, I got back into the groove. Had my first lifting session in 2 weeks (I think) and it was…brutal. But felt incredibly good. My squat form was honestly terrible, I could feel my quads and hamstrings tighten up even after a warm-up, but I pushed through 3 sets of 27kg squats (my new program calls for 5 sets of rear-loaded squats and 2 sets of box squats after.)
Even though I don’t feel my strongest and fittest right now, you can bet that I’ll be back in a week or two. Once my muscles get warmed up by consistency I’ll go back to squatting 7 sets.
Speaking of the new program (homemade), here’s my Quad and Glute Workout from it:
Monday: Glutes and Quads
Squat Warm Up:
Kettle-bell squats 10 x 3
Squat halos 10 x 2
Walking lunges 20
Rear loaded squats
(2 sets deep squats, 8 x 5 (27kg)
3 sets pause squats)
Box squats 8 x 2 (7kg)
Dumbbell step ups 3 x 10 (10kg)
Here’s to hoping my workouts stay brutal, cause I always love a challenge.
