Wow! Cooked leggage.

Well this is what I get for training the will. My legs are COOKED! Fried, died and layed aside. Could barely walk today.It was those heavy 88's I did I think. Havent done low rep heavy swings in a long time. Plus this was just a tough, but good week, training wise. time to train lighter for a week or so.

This just really shows me that what my legs need is strength endurance, not high tension.

So you NUKED the legs, huh?

Doesn't it feel kind of good to have that deep soreness that only comes from lifting heavier weights?

actually franz, no. I got plenty of that for so many years with bodybuilding and powerlifting. whats I've realized is that I have to keep my legs loose or they lock up so much I cant walk.

remember, my left knee only bends 95 deg so the hammy and IT band are always tight.I need the endurance but not the tension or DOMS>Heavy isnt better for me anymore.
