Today's leg workout is going to be insane. You're going to use a lot of energy and every one of your muscle fibers to get through it. Make sure you eat well before the workout, take a pre-workout and some creatine, and get your head in the game.
Some of the rep schemes in today's session are complicated, so make sure you watch Kris do this workout before you attempt it yourself! It's also helpful to see how he attacks each rep range, and witness the intensity he brings to each and every workout.

- The pyramid sets are going to be really, really difficult. On the way up, you can take a little more rest. Rest about 15 more seconds every time you increase the weight. On the way down, however, only rest long enough to strip the weights before you get back at it.
- When doing box squats, select a box that's low enough that your knees make at least a 90-degree angle. Otherwise, it's too high.
- Like all of the DTP workouts, you need to reach failure on every set.

As I drove to the gym this morning, I felt anger contain itself within me spreading like a cancer. It wasn’t the unpleasant or inconvenient kind that most people can manage, it was there to **** things up for me. I’m not an angry person, but sometimes the anger visits me until it turns me nasty. I felt the stew of anxiousness and anger breed within me as I looked at my shaking hands. I only wish for something or someone to hold at times like this but I know I would crush it or them. I live with memories and myself – it’s the only answer to my abilities in the gym. If I were to embrace someone now, it would soften my rigor, smoothen my edge and smother my survival. At the moment, I am dealing with a beast of a 100 faces, coming from all angles of surprise, self-rejection and reflection. I don’t need someone here to add to the crowd. My chances of suicide are high. I like that. I get to give fear a new face every leg day and then legally murder myself to a backdrop of internal screams only I get to hear - its music to my ears. Its these episodes in my life I have become attuned to live with. I don’t know many people like me. That’s how I like it. I know that these “dysfunctions” allow me to function my Machine to breed under the resistance of hate I place upon my leg workouts. I felt blinded by what I thought I would see of me during the workout today. I became deaf as I heard my legs reject the human form they were given to survive this ordeal. I gave them purpose to take on the Animalistic proportion of strength and size to feed and breed. I could feel my ribs stretch as seizures set in while my body craved for oxygen. Who does over 1000 reps for legs in 90 minutes? Nobody I know. I accept its something I have become. I deal with the world that resides in me. I don’t seek answers because it has become my darkness and my light. It creates the way to my brutality. It’s the fuel to my barbaric physicality. My purpose is to kill but I protest and commit suicide daily without giving the voices pleasure. I disfigured my legs until they pleaded for their lives. I became aroused by the screams within. I have willfully postponed my eternal death to inspire life within others. I have become my suffering for people purpose of living. When I completed 1095 reps today, I expired all of the waste within and thought, ‘I wouldn’t have it any other way.’ I am blessed to sacrifice for my shot at life. The more suffering I can endure in the gym, the more of life upon me I will evolve and live. I have that opportunity again tomorrow and the next.
