Great Leg Workout

Back to basics for the the Giant and the Hawk on a typical leg day (Tuesday). We got started with squats:
Set #1: Naked Bar 8-Reps
Set #2: 135lbs 8-Reps
Set #3: 225lbs 8-Reps
Set #4: 315 8-Reps
Set #5: 365lbs 5:6-Reps
Set #6 405lbs 2-Reps
Set #7 135lbs 8-Reps
The routine included five sets of Front Squats, Hack Squats, Lunges, Leg Presses, and Leg Extensions.

All in all, we trained for about 90 minutes with almost no breaks. The intensity was great, and blasted through another great leg day (a favorite of ours during the six months we've been training together).

Leave it to me to lose weight and become a size so rare that there's all but one pair of jeans in the whole JC Penny. Not to worry though, the very cool store staff were able to make a quick exchange the next day and I got a heck of a great deal. Four really cool t-shirts at 80% off for like $5 each, a really sweet Dockers sweater, and an extra pair of Levi's. The initial purchase that was exchanged was for a pair of Arizona jeans that were a whopping $14.95.That's a total steal.

So... the quest to lose weight and get ripped continues, but I no longer have to wear 42's with a tight-ass belt.. I mean it was starting to look like I was wearing sacks-for-pants. Funny but also an epic fail.
