    did my first heavy leg day in sometime on monday night.. i couldnt walk when I was done and at home.. my quads had NO energy.. my dog ran by me and hit the back of my knee and i collapsed and i didnt have the strength to get back up. :hs:

    i had to crawl to my bed and lift myself up with my arms.. i couldnt do a single quad extension just sitting in a chair, WITHOUT WEIGHT. I was miserable and kinda freakin out to be honest.. my quads/thighs were literally paralyzed for like 12 hours :hs:

    I remember in high school 2 days after a 20 rep squat all my classes were on different levels...

    I had to climb stairs all day! I'm just glad I didn't fall...

    I think the test I'm on has something to do with it, as well.. i get insane pumps.. more blood in the muscle, bigger it gets, more pressure on the nerves, me thinks.

    My lowerback pumps suck though :( sometimes i get them at work when I am just putting little pill bottles on the shelves.. and after 15 minutes of basketball, I feel like my lowerback is going to explode :\ same shit happens in my shins - i used to think it was shin splints, then i realized it was just heavy pumps :-\

    meh, this week and next, my workout 1 routine is 2 working sets of 18 with a 3rd set being my 20rm for 18 for squats, deadlift AND incline db press.

    straight sets is this week, I had to lie down after deadlifts because I felt like I was gonna puke and again after I finished squats.
    next week is anatagonist sets :wtc:
