Monday
The leg workout was fine in and of itself. But the damned trail walk after... oof. Less the distance (5-6km) but tiny sheep trail footpaths and a LOT of changes in elevation. The walks stop me stiffening up but damn they deplete my glycogen.

Leg Press
to the full whack - 700-kilos x 8 reps (time to up the reps)

Power Squat Machine
I decided to up the angle of the footplate (there are 5 positions and I'm usually on No3) to position 4 (steeper). In this way I can rack it myself. I held back from maxing it out too much so 'only' went to 400-kilos
to 400-kilos x 8 reps

Seated Leg Curls
to stack +5.5p x 15+3+2 reps

Leg Extension
to stack x 16+4 reps

Bwt: 298lbs

Tuesday
Two Hand Pinch
Equ (27.7kg) x 20 reps, 57.7-kilos x 20 reps, 85.95-kilos x 10+9 reps in about 75-seconds.

The usual slow Tuesday start. It's the leg workout and 'hella' walk right after.

Tuesday
Two Hand Pinch
Equ (27.7kg) x 20 reps, 57.7-kilos x 20 reps, 86.45-kilos x 8+7 reps in about 75-seconds.

The usual slow Tuesday start. It's the leg workout the day before and pretty much the only day I enjoy a late start.
