My booty has ridiculous doms from my leg workout the other day. Fairly certain that the lunges are the main culprit.

My quads are always the sore part. Rarely my a$s. Must be made of unobtanium.

400 is a right of passage.

I will never forget that it was a goal to pull 400 by 1/1/11. I did it in early november but got hurt and had to stop lifting for a month or so. So on the day, 1/1/11 I went in and did it just to do it even though I already had hit it 2 months prior.

Below is the video of that day on 1/1/11.

Yes it's extra dramatic. It's done to be funny.

Try doing actual glute-ham raises.

They do get a little sore, but nothing like my quads when it comes to lunges etc. It is mainly that I feel a little tight most days. Seldom am I debilitatingly sore.

I don't think I've ever done lunges and not had a sore butt. Squats never make it that sore.

Couldnt take it anymore. 5 days of absolutely zero exercises drove me nuts. So I did some air squats, lunges, pistols, situps, and this thing. I recorded it to get input on just how effective it reallly is because it wiped me out, I felt it in my lower back and a tiny bit in the hamstrings, but I don't know of its more of a waste of energy then a good movement. I can't get full range of motion, I can't get my torso vertical becuase of the hieght of the tire, and I can't get full extension back to really hit the hams because of fall in. What do you guys think? Keep it in the routine or scrap it? Wfs

Today when I did the DL, I worked up with all singles:
135x1, 185x1, 225x1, 275x1, 315x1, 365x1, 385x1, 405x1. That is what Rick Scarpulla taught me, but I have been working up with 5's and 3's. But from now on, I'm going to do only singles. Then when I'm done maxing out, I'll do a drop set for extra volume.

Does anyone just do singles? I felt much fresher when I got to my 3 reps over 90% (365,385,405).

I do sometimes. 1-2 reps is great for getting stronger and not wiping yourself out.

I kind of worded it wrong. I pretty much always work up to a 1RM, but in the past, I would have done:

135x5
185x5
225x5
275x3
315x3
365x1
385x1
405x1

Today, I did all singles.
