    Hi guys.
    I've just joined the site and as well as wanting to enjoy some great chat, I will be keeping a training journal here if my exercise programme.

    I'm 49 and in pretty good shape for my age, but I do need to be motivated to train sometimes.
    I've found in the past that a training log helps me to stick to my programme and reach my goals.

    I have bodybuilded a long time ago but I'm training these days just to keep my strength up and hold on to that ever-decreasing muscle tone!

    I have been told regularly that I look fit for my age and am holding the muscle well.
    I enjoy mostly biceps curling and squats, as I do have a shapely butt. Haha!

    I'll be posting my first instalment later today after my gym visit.
    Today: Legs.

    Thanks guysicon_smile.gif

    ....So here we go with my first training entry.
    You will notice my programme varies each time.
    I do try to keep a basic "Push, Pull, Legs" routine, plus a tone/cardio day, but the sets and rep structure will alter. This is to keep me motivated.
    At the end of some exercises, I do a quickfire high-rep set of 50 reps at a reduced weight. This gets the blood pumping!

    Monday 3rd Feb. 2014. Legs:

    1. Leg curl, machine:
    10x45kg
    10x60kg
    10x70kg
    8x75kg
    6x80kg
    50x30kg hi-reps

    2. Leg extensions (quad flexes):
    15x80kg
    15x90kg
    15x100kg

    3. Reverse curl (hams):
    10x35kg
    10x45kg
    10x50kg
    10x55kg
    50x30kg hi-rep.......a killer!!

    4. Hack squat, machine:
    10x80kg
    10x100kg
    10x110kg

    5. Calf raises:
    60x80kg

    6. Seated leg press, horizontal:
    50x70kg hi-reps

    Feeling like jelly after that sesh, legs - especially inner quads - looking like rocks! Butt looking pert and cool!

    Thanks for reading guys!

    Yeah, I used to do a lot of it when I was bodybuilding.
    Now I'm an old boy and it's much more 'relaxed'.
    I still try to push myself, when energy allows!icon_smile.gif

    Unfortunately I'm going to have to end this journal. There's no real interest for it.
    Never mind, I will still be training.
