Training - Legs

Bodyweight - 240

Leg Ext -
25x20
50x20
75x20
100x20
75x20
50x20
25x20

Front Squats -
135x5,5
225x5,5
275x5,5,5

Ab Wheel/1 Legged Calf Superset - 2x20 for each

Notes - Had a nap and a monster earlier.  The road trip really took a toll on me, but this workout was not too bad.  The quad had no pain, so I'm going to stick it out at 275 for a while and push the reps there.  Though I'm positive I will be tempted to go to 315 soon if the leg continues to feel good.  I will try to be smart here.......heh

  1. Hey Paul, do you ever get knee pain when you ease up on the squat? I took a week off of squatting over Thanksgiving and ever since then ive had weird minor knee discomfort. Just thought it was odd.....

    1. Never. I've got pretty much bullet proof knees. All the years of training, football, and fighting and I've never had a single knee issue other than some tendinitis in the patella tendon.

  2. The silence on your "women take notice" FB post is deafening.

  3. Paul, I was gonna write this on your post about your diet during the holiday, but here it goes.

    Have you ever tried protein pudding/ice cream instead of a regular shake before bed? I´ve been having it for more than a year now, and it´s awesome. Since you´re on CN, just put a scoop of whey, 1 egg white and cream in a bowl, mix it with a mixer on high for about 5 minutes and then put it on the freezer for around 30mins.

    2. Nice. How did you do it? And how did it turn out?

    3. Casein, a little bit of sugar free pudding mix, and water.

      If you don't care about carbs you can make one with met-rx that is REALLY good. But you make it with milk, met-rx, and pudding powder.

  6. Do you still practice martial arts? Did your strength training change during you time competing as a martial artist? How did you fair in your fights?

    Not trying to pester you with questions, it's just very similar to my own situation. When martial arts was my priority my strength training became more of a chore. I blew my knee cap outta place last year and had to go under the knife, it's been during that time I really focused on making some goals for lifting and rediscovering that passion.

    I don't know why you have this site and you dedicate your time to it, but I can tell you it helps me out when I'm unmotivated and not really focused. Having someone to relate to in a small way helps shake off the bullshit of being stuck in the rat race everyday and focus on what I consider important.

    So thanks....

    1. Don't practice anymore. I might again some day but for now I have other passions and avenues I am pursuing.
