Workout 11 July 2011

Legs, legs, legs!!

I'm still resting my shoulder, which is mostly an extremely inflamed trapezius muscle that is causing the pain. I'm icing, stretching, resting, taking 800mg motrin twice a day, and using a neck/ shoulder rub by Tiger Balm before bed.

Today's workout was a combination of kettlebells, TRX, and bodyweight exercises. I've never done a workout entirely of legs before, and it was quite difficult. It took me about an hour and a half to get through it. I don't rush the exercises, rather I give myself enough rest time to focus on every single repetition to make it the best it possibly can. I did three rounds, mostly in the form of 10 reps first round, 8 reps second round, and then 6 third round.

Goblet squat, 8kg kettlebell round 1, bodyweight rounds 2 and 3- 10, 8, 6
Suspended lunge, TRX- 10+10, 8+8, 6+6
Deck squat, bodyweight- 10, 8, 6
Suspended abducted lunge, TRX- 10+10, 8+8, 6+6
1-leg DL, 8kg, 10+10, 8+8, 6+6
Hamstring curl, TRX- 10, 8, 6
Pistol squat on plyo box- 5+5, 4+4, 3+3
1-leg hip press, TRX- 10+10, 8+8, 6+6
Split squat, bodyweight- 10+10, 8+8, 6+6
2-kettlebell squat, 10lbs each- 10, 8, 6

I could have done another round or two but I don't want to burn myself out or get too sore while I'm resting my upper body because I need to be able to do another workout tomorrow!

Here's a deck squat. I love them!
