All-Out 8-Week Mass Attack. No Holds Barred.
Day # 33 of 56 - 02-22-02

I don't know what my problem has been lately but it has been harder and harder to get up in the morning. I have nearly overslept everyday this week, thank goodness for the weekend, I plan on doing some major catching up on some sleep. Once I finally rolled out of bed and watched a little of my "Battle for the Olympia 99" video I was ready to go.

Today is leg, forearm and calve day. I made the decision yesterday that starting on Monday I will go back to my 5 on 2 off split. I just feel the need to concentrate on 1-2 body parts a day instead of my current three.

I did my usual calve workout. 3 heavy sets of 20 reps of donkey raises, seated raises and toe raises on leg press. Although today I did superset seated raises and toe raises on the leg press.

One arm hammer curls - 1x10 - 30lbs, 1x10 - 65 lbs, 1x6 -100lbs, 1x6 -110lbs, 1x10 - 60lbs
Reverse curls - 2x10 - 115lbs
Reverse cable curls - 1x8 - 120lbs, 1x8 - 80lbs
Wrist curls - 2x20 - 115lbs
Wrist twists - 2x20 - 45lbs
Dumbbell wrist curls - 2x20 - 60lbs

Leg curls - 1x10 - 80lbs, 1x8 - 100lbs, 1x8 - 130lbs
Stiff leg dead lifts - 1x10 - 225lbs, 1x8 - 245lbs
High foot placement leg press - 1x10 - 4 plates each side, 1x10 - 5 plates each side
Leg press - 1x10 - 5 plates each side, 1x10 - 6 plates each side
Hack squats - 1x10 - 2 plates each side, 1x8 - 2 plates + 10lbs
Squats - 1x10 - 135lbs, 1x10 - 185lbs
Front squats - 1x10 - 135lbs

Today I just felt the need to train my quads a little lighter than normal. But in doing so I really concentrated on the negative and getting the full range of motion. Some times those subtle little things can make a huge difference. I also moved leg press, hacks to first in my workout for quads and that must have really confused my quads because right now they are very fatigued and soreness is starting to set in. I can't wait for tomorrow to take some stats to see where I am.
