    The funny thing about drive-through's in NC is that:

    A certain mostly rural county has been completely dry for many years. Then, the largest town passes a referendum on alcohol sales. Now, there's a drive-through beer place that looks like a car wash there. (As if beer weren't available at the grocery store).

    There aren't drive-through places in the other nearby counties. Beer/wine is sold in grocery stores and mini-marts and liquor is sold at the ABC stores.

    What a way to restart training....leg day! We're doing MAX-OT as it's written. Feels like not enough because I'm used to 3-4 working sets of 8-10 reps. Holy Cow, got out of the car and my hamstrings are already achy and tight. I have to use kgs in stead of lbs so I'll post the conversion to lbs in parenthesis. All my weights are much lower than I usually lift. Gimme a couple of weeks to get back into the swing of things.

    Squats
    w/u sets
    1x10@bar
    2x10@40 (88)
    acclimation sets
    1x1@60 (132)
    working sets
    3x6@90 (198)

    Leg Press
    1x6@200 (441)
    1x6@240 (529)

    Stiff Leg Deads
    1x6@120 (264)
    1x6@130 (285)
    Holy crap! I never did stiff leg deads with more than 185lbs.

    Standing calf raises
    1x8@120 (264)
    1x6@ 160 (353)

    Seated Calf Raises
    1x8@20 (44)
    1x8@30 (66)

    Weird that I can lift so much more on standing calf than seated. I tried 90lbs but no way.

    Wow, great job on he SLDL, I predict DOMS on the hams!

    I think that is normal on the calves, seated vs standing strength.

    I've only been to the one we went to today. The Warehouse in Freemantle. It's not the one I'll normally be going to but I liked it a lot. It was the type most of us like. Kinda dark, old equipment that worked just fine, plenty of weights. When we were squatting an older gentleman came up to us and asked if we were training for powerlifting. Sledge told him no, he just lifts and I compete in bodybuilding to which the man replied I didn't think I'd seen either of you on the powerlifting circuit. I get that a lot....people asking me if I'm a powerlifter.

    I'll come clean. I have not trained legs in about 3-4 months. I was doing so much cardio for the show and I know I have decent legs so I let the leg training slip so I could concentrate on burning off fat with cardio. I also haven't lifted AT ALL in the last month. I just felt I needed the recovery. So I was pretty satisfied with this workout.

    I don't really have DOMs yet. (It's the next day here) Just a little tightness in my hammies. Then again, leg DOMs usually take a little more time to hit me than other body parts.

    Yeah...It just goes to show how limiting the mind can be. Because everything is in kgs here I didn't know what poundage I was lifting. It was only after I did and made the conversion that I was like..WTF?!?!?! And I started that set from the floor like a regular deadlift so it was one deadlift and 6 SLDL. My someday goal is a 300 pound deadlift set. I see that in the very near future.

    You actually burn more calories during a leg workout than any other, really. lol I know what your schedule and life was like, though - so understand completely.

    Yeah, it wasn't so much that I thought cardio burned more calories, it's that I knew if my legs were too DOMsy I wouldn't get the cardio done. At the end of my prep I was on 2 1/2 hours a day.

    I was with you. lol


    Not being able to work out was what screwed me in the end. I couldn't even hold the bar to do squats, so had to stretchy band myself to death. I seriously wanted someone to shoot me. lol

    You are correct in that your legs were awesome. This is something I need to build back up - my hammies, especially.
