    My weak ass did 5 sets squats

    2 sets with 135 by 8
    1 set with 185 x 8
    1 set 225x5
    1 set 135 x8

    (at least i was going deep)
    And my quads have been sore for a week. I realize this is pathetic.
    I usually avoid legs b/c I don't want them to be too sore to run a couple miles or so after my workouts...or that could just be an excuse.

    if youre only doing squats you legs will never get used to it. Do a full leg workout and after a few weeks your body will adapt. Make sure you do a dynamic warmup before training legs and stretch after. If you are eating right and getting enough sleep you should be fine. Light cardio the next day will aid in recovery. no high impact after training legs... hell I usually don't do any cardio after a full leg session.

    You'd also be surprised how much getting your legs warmed up helps. I've had days were my legs were so sore I thought there was no way I could deadlift and do cardio, but once I foam rolled a bit and did some dynamic work my legs were fine.




    cliffs: do more than just squats and harden the fuck up
