It's leg day and I love leg day.  Headed to the gym in 32 minutes.  I'm getting excited.

 

 

 

That is all.

Actually, the protocol I'm doing right now only lets me do legs once a week.  I would typically do them twice a week at fewer sets, lower reps, and heavier weights.  

 

Today was 10s set of 10 squats @ 155.  Full range of motion, ass to ankles (or as close as my body goes).  I think I actually did eleven sets.  I lost count and wasn't sure if I had just done four or five so I called it four and kept going.

10x10 seated calf raises @ 110

8 sets of 10 deadlifts @ 185.

 

The part that makes it hard is strict 60 second rest intervals between sets.  For the squats and deads I'm at about 50% of my previous 1RM so the first four sets or so are easy.  After that the fatigue from the quick turn around sets in and starts making it harder.   The last two sets suuuuuuuuuck, but the DOMS is awesome.

I'm researching and testing out my next strength-based protocol right now and its for this reason i'm edging towards greyskull rather than 5/3/1

I was on 5/3/1 for a year or so. I did make gains, but started to realize that I needed to squat more. Every week was like I'd forget just a little how to squat.

 

I moved over to Madcow and most of it is working for me. Squats are at least feeling more locked in and I am making progress. 

 

I switched from low-bar to front squats (when I started madcow) and now high-bar, so I'm still decently below my low-bar numbers. Goals!

 

I've never heard of greyskull, I'm going to go check that out now.
