4/30/13

Afternoon: Legs

Warmup: Mobility drills

1) Step-Up - 8 x 20, 8 x 25, 8 x 30
2) Swiss Ball Leg Curl - 100
3) Glute Kick - 100 x #9
4) Calf Raise - 200
5) Prone Band Pull Apart - 100 x blue band

Step Up - felt easy today. I wanted a top set of 30 and it felt very easy. Good deal. Still going up slowly.

SBLCs - got them in 4 sets - 50, 25, 15, 10

Glute kick - 80 and 20

4) Triceps Pushdown - 100 x #11

Fly - Felt great today. 100 in a row.

DB curls - got 75 and 25.

Tris - 70 and 30. Clearly I had a lot of endurance today.
