Thread: Too much???

I just got back from a damn good leg workout, but I think I may have done a little too much. Im cutting so don't make fun of my strength
Stiff Leg Deadlifts
Calf raises standing
3 sets of 20
3 sets of 20

Your program design looks solid. Your next workout will be the key. If you do not get maintain or get stronger (hard to do while cutting), you will need to reevaluate. If you get weaker on your second workout, maybe drop 1 set off of each exercise (not leg curls and calves, though). Why did you only do 3 sets on leg curls, as where you did 4 for leg extensions? I would balance these out.

Your hamstrings are very strong. Your resistance on leg curls rivals that of your leg extensions. Maybe it was just the machines that you were using .

For the leg extensions is that one leg at a time or both?
And why the stiff legged deads? I thought that bent knee worked your hams more...?

Stiff-legged deads, a single-joint exercise if a neutral spinal alignment is used, place an intense stretch in your hamstrings. In regular deads, a multi-joint exercise, your quads assist the glutes and hamstrings in the performance of the movement.

what up chest u keep hitting those legs that hard you'll never find a pair of jeans that fit lol.

Thats the point . Papi..when I did leg extensions I did them slower and didnt assist any with my bodyweight. I squeezed at the top and went all the way up, where the top of the weightstack hit the top of the machine. I did the leg curls quicker and didnt squeeze. Probably why. I also haven't done leg extensions in a long ass time because I think they contributed to messing up my knee, because I would do heavy ass weight and use my body to get the weight up. Stiff legged I feel it in my hamstrings bigtime. With a straight back, I hardly feel it at all.

Thats right, i forgot about Romo deads... (I'm 100% Romo) But i thought that you only slightly bend your knees... And i thought that your always supposed to keep your back straight, with slightly rounded shoulders...? Any input?

I heard the strength ratio of 2:1, quads:hams is correct. Probably the only way to measure that is by doing ham curls and leg extensions on the same machine...

Papi I see you talk about Ian King I have tried a couple of his workouts............A while back I tried limping into the millenium. I was like cool the first 3 weeks very little weight used and more stabilizing elements and one legged skier hack squats, that kind of thing. Let me say...........OUCH...........WTF.............why are my legs so sore the next day with most exercises done with body weight. I love his workouts and theories.............next week I start one of his mass programs it looks like this.
10 reps @ 30% * * denotes warm-up
8 reps @ 60% *
6 reps @ 80% *
4 negative reps 25% heavier than max
Close Grip Rows
Same Rep scheme
Close Grip Bench
Same as above however the second set of 4 is not negatives. They just have to be heavier than the first set of 4.
Same as above
Same as bench
Wide Grip Pulldowns
Same as above
I am excited to started and hoping for good gains.

Whats up Bud?
Hey bro, it looks pretty good. If you recovering fine then don't sweat it. All I would suggest is if your getting burnt out take out one of the thigh exercises. Other than that good training man!

He is really big on rep tempo. If you really emphasize the negative or eccentric phase of your lift, you will experience some serious soreness. The tearing of the muscle fibers occurs on the eccentric phase, not the concentric phase. Good luck with your future workouts!
