Hamstrings First

I didn’t hear my alarm this morning and woke up an hour later than usual. I guess my body just needed the extra rest. That’s ok because today was leg day and felt revived when I got to the gym, ready for battle.

I normally hit leg press first but someone was on it. So on a whim I decided just to hit hams first. I haven’t done that in a while and sometimes it’s good to veer from the norm. After the incredible pump I got from this workout, I’m glad I did.

Believe it or not, hitting hams first got my legs warmed up to the point that I was able to jump right into the plate-loaded squats. I kept the weight the same on each set as just did 4 sets of 12 strict reps. I did go up in weight each set when I got to leg press. At the end, I almost walked away after extensions but decided to hit a few sets of hack squats with a close foot-stance.

My focus over the past few years has been honing in more on the mind muscle connection. This became a bit tricky with leg training because I generally do more reps and overall volume for legs. And when you’re doing more reps you’re typically not performing slow reps. So it takes more effort to make sure the muscle is working when you’re doing higher reps vs just pumping out reps and going through the motions.

Train with Passion,
