I was joined by a close friend today for my daily workout before heading to Umass. We started off with squats, doing 4 sets of 6 repetitions starting at 185 pounds and increasing 40/50 pounds each time until 315 pounds was done. We then rotated between calf raises and deadlifts. Calf raises being more of a burn exercise, we did 20 to 25 repetitions of 185 pounds for 4 sets. Deadlifts were done in a similar way to squats, with 4 sets of 6 repetitions done from 185 to 315 pounds. Additional repetitions were done to see if I could increase my personal best, and I was able to deadlift 405 pounds for a new max repetition. Power cleans were done next, but having not done them in a long time and being exhausted from earlier exercises, 3 sets of 8 repetitions were done from 95 to 135 pounds. Finally, leg extension and curl machines were used for 3 sets of 10 repetitions ranging from 145 to 175 pounds.
