Since today is my resting day from lifting, I will start posting my routine for tomarrow and the rest of the week. I know I slipped off my journal, but I've been using a regular notebook lately.
Supps I am taking:
Extra Vitamin C
Green Tea Extract
ON Milk Chocolate whey (24g per Scoop)
Creatine Ethyl Ester
Routine for 11-2-2008
I like to get legs out of the way before my week starts. The last thing I want to do after being on my feet all day is legs.
I do a 10 minute warmup on the cycle to get the blood moving, then I follow up with some stretches. I am still finding it difficult to go heavy while squatting. I get a weird feeling in my left kneecap. I may have to buy some wraps.
LungesWalking or in place
Seated Leg Curls
Lying Leg Curls
Abductor and Adductor Great for the hip flexors
Donkey Kick Backs
I may add some stiff legged deadlifts in there.
Is that all the exercises you did in one day!? Seems like alot.
I am preparing in advance. This is Sundays workout. I just listed all these and I'll pick which ones I'll do. Most likely I'll warm up with extensions and curls, then some light squats and lunges (my knee), then leg press and hack squats (heavy), then finish up with the abductor, adductor and glute kick back. It'll show a different picture when I add the weights in.
Do you not think that hack squats will aggravate your knee? Improving your squat form will probably take care of the knee issue.
I'll start on squats after warming up and see if this helps. Maybe I'm throwing squats in too late when I'm not fresh?
Squats are always the first thing I do in any kind of lower body workout. They're probably the most important exercise & should be prioritized that way. :)
Ok, I'll start with squats tomarrow. Thanks Ross.

Maybe try Box squatting with a nice wide stance,that should minimize the amount of forward knee travel.If you wanna build some big eye pleasing quads you could try bulgarian squats too.Sled dragging backwards really has put size on my quads too.
