Today's Workout - Leg Day


This morning I hit the gym at 6:30 for Leg Day. When I was done, I stretched, then foam rolled, then jumped up to put away all my stuff (I hate when people leave mats & such just laying around.. put it away!)... and walking back to my notebook I realized... 

I wasn't limping! 

Look Ma, No Limp!!! Woohoo! I always limp a bit after a leg workout (and cardio). But today... No pain! I got home, dumped my bag and ran up the stairs for coffee (yes, the coffee pot is in my bedroom, lol) and NO PAIN going up the stairs! Not even a twinge! I'm 19 weeks out of knee-surgery and I finished a workout without limping, and ran up the stairs without pain! AWESOME!!!!

Here's the workout I did (little to no rest between):

Alternate x 3:
Leg Press 90 lb  15 reps
Squats   15 reps

Alternate x 3:
Hack Squat (sled weight only)  15 reps
Stiff-Legged Deadlift 30 lb bar  12 reps

Alternate:
Straight Leg Raises (with resistance tube) 3 x 12 each leg
Medicine Ball Crunch - 30 x 3
Medicine Ball Crunch with Raise 30 x 3
Plank - 2 x 2reps of 60 seconds

Stretch & foam roller knee.
