I would just like to mention that today’s leg day was written down a lot harder than what I got finished within 3 hours. I know it seems like a long day, but that includes the breaks, because this week is all heavy lifting, which means longer rest periods. I don’t ever plan on being at a gym for more than 1 hour, but since training for powerlifting, I have been inside a gym no less than 2 hours .. which probably is normal depending on your fitness level and your workouts. I know many days I have a cardio and lift that (so take that into consideration) most lifters don’t like doing their cardio on the same days as lifting. I am an odd ball and so far have been able to handle it. I will also mention that some days I have a gym partner (now); I guess that is what happens when you make new friends at the gym, they then decide it would be cool to lift with you and thank goodness she lifts just as much or heavier than me.. so it hasn’t been bad at all, considering I am usually a lone wolf when I workout and I liked it. Many times my workout sets or reps get cut because she wants to shorten the gym period but very rarely will I be doing that because we have different goals in mind and I need to focus on my overall goal to put it lightly. Regardless, it has been nice to have a gym partner every once in a while to keep me motivated and help spot me.
- barbell back squat:
- 75% of 90% of my 1-RM: 3 x 5, 135 lb
- 85% of 90% of my 1-RM: 3 x 3, 155 lb
- 95% of my 90% of my 1-RM: 3 x 1, 170 lb
- 95% of my true 1-RM (singles): 3 x 1, 190 lb
- Jump squats: 2 x 25-30 seconds
- leg press: 5 x 20, 208 lb
- DB goblet squats: 3 x 15, 25 lb
- Barbell front squats: 3 x 10, 6, 12, 95 lb, 55 lb
P.S I also implemented foam rolling and stretching along with my warm up in the beginning of my workout — yay 🙂

Good for you being able to recover from heavy lifting and plyo. I’m at a stage where I have to pick one these days.
