Friends don't let friends skip leg day!/

This morning lift was straight to the point! Dany and I decided to hit legs on a Monday. Nothing like a case of the Mondays at 5AM. Dany and I are at two very different weights. I stand around 170ish, Dany however weights about 130ish. One thing I love about lifting with friends who truly want to develop is that they lift with a purpose. Dany does the exact same workout that I do, but we obviously lift different weights. Adjusting your workout accordingly to what you NEED to do so your body will see progression. For example, I was squatting 135 for warm-up, Dany was squatting 135 for his strength training. My rep range was 10-12, he pulled out a clean 8 each time. Don't worry about what others might think of your so-called 'flimsy' weight, do what you have to do for yourself. We all go to the gym for ourselves(hopefully), so don't sweat it for others.

5 x 10-12 Hammer-Strength Leg extensions (2 sets of warm up)
5 x 10-12 Hammer-Strength Leg curls (2 sets of warm up)
5 x 8-12 Squats

5 x 8 Overhead Press (1 set of warm up)
superset w/ 5 x 12 Lateral Raises (10lb plates)

This workout was fairly short. It was about 30-40 minutes long. Squats and overhead press really took the most time. We lifted heavy for how much we weighed. One thing I love about lifting heavy is how you feel in between sets. Dany just kept on saying that he felt 'strong'. There is no simpler way to put it. You lift heavy, your going to feel strong.

Really been impressed on the progression Dany has made in the matter of two weeks. The consistency with him is there, which is a must when you start out! Kill it everyday and you will see the changes.

Stay strong and fit, friends!
