Do you do leg curls 1 leg at a time or both together?

Just cutting back a bit.  I don't count calories or macros.

Deadlifts & Legs

It's been 4 weeks sicne my last deadlift session, and the previous one was 4 weeks before that.  And it showed.   :-[

I wasn't expecting anything spectacular, but I didn't think I'd be as weak as I was.  Didn't even attempt a 5 plate pull today.

That said, I had no grip issues, which was nice.  Just didn't have that solid feeling in my lower back.

Was moving about as fast as a turtle this morning, so all I had time for was leg press after the deads, and didn;t go super heavy on these.  Just focused on getting full ROM, and slowly squeezing out the reps.

Chalk Only:

135 x 10
225 x 6
225 x 6
275 x 5
275 x 5
315 x 3
315 x 3
365 x 1

405 x 1
405 x 1

Chalk & Belt:

425 x 1
455 x 1
475 x 1
405 x 3

OK, that was enough of those.  No more slacking on these.  I'll get back to 500+ in a week or two.

Leg Press

(Includes Sled Weight of ~120lbs)

300 x 10
390 x 10
480 x 8
570 x 8
660 x 8

750 x 6
750 x 6
750 x 6
750 x 6
750 x 6

That's it.

No training this weekend.  Chest and Biceps Monday.

Happy Friday.  :)

Geez,that is a lot of sets Flex.Your routines obviously work,and I counted 35 sets in one!

How long have you been doing so many?Did you plan to progressively increase them,(if you have increased them),or did you just add a couple of sets here and there?

I noticed another journal here that has large set numbers,so now my curiosity is piqued.

Just the way I've always lifted.  I can't do 3 or 4 sets of an exercise.  Never feels like enough.
