Workout Today - Legs

In the Gym...
Today is the first workout of Week 18 Pre-Show. Legs. I did the full workout, plus increased my weight on the leg press, not by much, but I felt it! Oh boy, did I feel it! Here's the workout (the way they're grouped together is how I superset them, 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

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.

Total time: 52 minutes
Calorie Burn: 323
Heart Rate Info: 133-159

I'm not entirely sure why, but I went into this morning's workout with a significant amount of fear. Was I afraid to increase my sets? My weights? What? I don't know, but it drug at me. I drove to the gym, turned on my iPod and just did it. No wasted reps. Focus, do the work. The fear faded about halfway through my workout. I still don't know what it was about, but I know that I didn't let it hold me down.

I want to thank those of you who've contacted me and encouraged me in this journey. Your words are so very appreciated! I'm so grateful to you!

Moving forward, after work I have Tab's Total Body Conditioning Class (weights & cardio). After that, dinner is Taco Salad, then chill time with the family. Tomorrow morning is yoga, then weights in the evening.

Taking the steps, one at a time.
