That's the kind of day I had today!
Leg days have this weird way of playing tricks with my mind. I always go in totally dreading how much it's going to hurt and resenting how hard it's going to be. I moan and groan through the first few sets but then once I get into it, I'm FLYING. All of a sudden I'm dripping sweat, my heart is pounding, and I'm smiling from ear to ear because I know it's been the best workout all week.
Today I did a total of 458 squats and leg presses. No, that's not a typo. And yes, I'm beaming as I write it :D I had to count twice to make sure:
Squats = 10 sets of 10 reps
Leg Press = 9 x 12
Single Leg Press = 10 x 25
Oh, and of course there were multiple sets of leg curls, extensions, and calf raises too.... not to brag or anything ;)
Yup, pretty soon my legs are going to look like<----------------THIS----------------->
Did I say "soon"? Ok, it's probably more like "eventually". But I'm well on my way, and I'm feeling pretty darn good about it.
