A few months ago (Sept) I decided to increase my numbers in regards to the weight I use for my lower body workouts. My initial/baseline results are on this post and also listed below along with my goals
As of 8/25/13
- Single Leg Press- 65lbs
- Double Leg Press- 125 lbs
- Leg extension/curl- 65 lbs
- [Back] Deep Squat- 70lbs
- Lunges & step Ups -w/15lbs in each hand
My goals for December:
- Single Leg Press- 85lbs
- Double Leg Press- 180lbs
- Leg Curl/Extension- 80 lbs
- Deep Squat- 90 lbs
- Lunges / step ups- 25 lbs
I have met or exceeded all my goals. I am sooooo happy about that. Additionally, yesterday I got a body fat skin caliper test which is the “gold standard”. GUESS WHAT MY BODY FAT PERCENTAGE IS?!?!?!? 16.08% which means I’m placed in the lean category.
So back to my lower body strength goals. This is where I am right now!
- Leg Press- 220 lbs
- Single Leg Press- (Stopped doing these because I wanted to protect my knees)
- Leg Curl-115 lbs
- Leg Extension- 80 lbs
- Step ups/lunges- 25 lbs
- Deep Back Bar Squat- 95 lbs
Right now I’m up about 7 pounds from August. I wanted to gain weight, I even wrote about it! But it actually happened! *woot woot* My clothes fit differently, a good different and I feel confident about my new eating habits.
So that’s a little update! I’m really happy with it. Upper body has also improved too, don’t think that I’m just having leg days every day…. nah that’s wack! 1 leg day. 1 upper body day. 1 core day. 1 cardio day. 1 misc day. 2 rest days.
Have a great day! Keep striving for your goals!
