I'll just say it. I'm a glutton for punishment. Saturday I climbed to the top of Lake Mountain, came home and collapsed on the couch for the afternoon before gearing up to go to the gym. Why would I do this, you ask. Well, I'd already agreed to go do leg day with Jeff and it seemed the thing to do. I was tired and so was he, after working a 60 hour work week. But we headed over to the gym at about 6:30p on Saturday night to party it up!
1 mile walk- treadmill
Donkey calf raise
Gaining strength and shape!
Jeff is a beast! His legs make mine look like tooth picks.
First time doing box squats. I think I aggravated my knee with deep and heavy squats, so I'm going to try these for a while. They felt good and my knee is feeling 100% this weekend, so that is fantastic, all the way around. Plus, I squatted 115#!
We get to the calf raise machine and I do my set. Jeff asks me in surprise, "Did you just lift that!?" The pin was on 136lbs (so I thought) but turns out it was actually 136kg or 300lbs! However, I usually do what I thought was 145lbs but is actually 320lbs. Surprise! I have stronger calves than I thought! Shameless selfie time!
