Post Vacation Leg Workout

12 May 2014

Today I was supposed to do 2+2 sets of 5 with 70% (2 x 280 and 2 x 350). But after two weeks of relative inactivity the speed just wasn't there. I can maintain strength quite easily over 15-20 days of no training, but speed/technique is a different beast. Every single squat felt slow and out of groove - grinding the bar up was not a problem, but the speed just wasn't there.

My vacation training consisted of one squat workout (worked up to 395x5 or something) and

Speed squat 280 lbs. x 2s x 5, 315x2, 335x2, 345x5, 320x3

Sets with 280 done with pause in the hole. Bolded sets were not fast enough to be "speed squats".

Hack squats 3s x 10

Weighted Roman chair situps 3s x 8

Leg curls, seated, 3s x 10

Leg extensions 3s x 10

Calf raises 2s x 12
