Default Why Settle? - The Continious Progression of Kühn

<font color="red"> Nov 9, 2007 </font>

<font color="blue">Squats</font>

135 lbs x 5
185 lbs x 5
225 lbs x 4
275 lbs x 4

<font color="blue">Front Squats</font>

135 lbs x 5
185 lbs x 5
<font color="odgerblue">225 lbs x 4</font>
Note: New PR~

<font color="blue">Lunges</font>

40 lbs x 10
45 lbs x 8
35 lbs x 8

<font color="blue">DC Calf Training on Standing Calf Machine</font>

How this works is you do 12 reps. With a 5 second negative and you hold the bottom of the exercise for 15 seconds.

240 lbs x 12

160 lbs x 12

Ramblings and Thoughts:

- Could have got another rep on back squats, I'm sure, but the last rep my back started to round I noticed, and didn't want to risk anything

- Got an immense pain in my delt during the front squats, again, I could have prolly got 225 lbs x 5. Oh well, there is next time.

Rating of Workout: 8.5/10

Ramblings and Thoughts:

- Solid (!@#$%^&amp;*) workout!

- I find declines difficult to do. Mainly because in the start position, your arms are somewhat restricted, and it's hard to lift the bar off.

- Bosu ball push-ups: surprisingly more difficult than anticipated [img]/forum/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

- Fried my triceps again. Still trying to get the same effect in my biceps.

- Wanting 120 lbs x 5 or so by the end of the year on skull crushers.

Length of Workout: 1h and 20 min

Water Consumed During the Workout: ~3.0 L

- I have a new place in my heart for incline skull crushers. They freakin' rock! I know I have to to thank someone here, I forget who though. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]
