Was It Really a PR Or Not? Leg Day Workout
Monday, December 19, 2022
Woke up very groggy and with the idea I could skip working out. It's cold, It's Monday. My body knows Monday is a Recovery Day. Why am I getting up at 3:45am? If you were to tell me I as doing a PR today I wouldn't have believed you. Hell I told myself I might only do machines for this leg day.
Got a new 1RM on my Back Squat* Leg Day at Gym and 20 minute 80’s and a 10 minute EDM Climb Bike+ Rides pic.twitter.com/A4VZhtaCLH— Joel McKenna (@the17thman) December 19, 2022

BB Back Squat
6x 65.7% of 1RM
6x 71.4% of 1RM
6x 74.28% of 1RM
4x 82.85% of 1RM
4x 85.71% of 1RM
4x 88.5% of 1RM
4x 91.42% of 1RM
2x 100% of 1RM
1x PR by 5 lbs*
Leg Extension Machine 1 2 3 4 5
Standing Glute Kickback Machine 1 2 3
The asterik * is because my form was shitty and yes it's a 1RM meaning One Rep Max and I did it once. But I like to do at least two sets of a 1RM to make sure it wasn't a fluke. But my body told me to stop. When I stand normally I hyper extend at my knees. Which is why if I stand a lot the next few days I have some knee pain. Because of that when I lift and come to squeeze my glutes a the top of the lift my knees hyperextend. So by the new PR of 1RM my knees told me no more. Don't need to get hurt.

Once home I did a 20 minute 80's Ride and a 10 minute EDM Climb Ride. Nothing too crazy. Before I left the gym I had to snap a photo of the Gingerbread Man Running Club Chalkboard Art. Now breakfast and work. Tomorrow will be Back and Biceps and Wednesday Chest, Tri and Shoulders. After that I might get in some Peloton Rides at the very least.
As for Random Acts of Fitness I did High-5 on the Peloton.
