T-LOG: MONoct17th-TUESoct25

Monday, October 17th, 2011

I decided to change my week a little bit to see if I took a day to stretch, foam roll, and to relax a little bit if my quad would feel better.  So I decided to do my 'Tuesday squat session' this evening so that tomorrow I could really focus on getting loose and foam rolling.

Morning Session(10:30am):

Bench Press: 400 x 5 x 5sets

Handstand Holds 40s x 4 sets
w T-bar Chins x 26
X 4 sets

Evening Session(8:15pm):

CAT Squat: 455+chains@60lbs x 5 x 6 sets in under 25 minutes

Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

FOAM Rolling on the quads x 50 passes each leg
w GHD situp x 15
w Inverted ring rows x 35

Clearly I am not good at taking days off and I went far too aggressively with the foam rolling.  My left quad(the good quad) developed a crazy new pain not allowing me to squat or even raise my knee towards my chest.  I believe that I have simply worked out some bad kinks... as when I went to see a specialist to massage and treat my legs, one of my calves hurt so much I could barely walk and my original injuries were highly aggravated...injuries were much much worse...and then a few days later everything felt great.
