Here are my very n00b numbers, but I want to write this down so I can track my progress.
Squat - 3 x 5 @ 135 lbs
SLDL - 1 x 8; 2 x 6 @ 135 lbs
Leg Press - 3 x 15 @ 140 lbs (Plate Weight Only, don't know the sled weight)
Leg Curl - 3 x 15 @ 60 lbs
Calf Raise - 3 x 12 @ 45 lbs (Plate Weight Only, used seated calf raise machine)
I used the Seated Leg Curl instead of Prone Leg Curl machine, don't know which one is better, and maybe I should just stand on a box to do the Calf Raises? The gym was empty, and the guy who was sitting at the front was nowhere to be seen when I was ready to do calf raises, so I couldn't ask what I could use as a platform.
Anyways, I look forward to seeing my #'s going up, but today was fun as shit and it kicked my ass.
Good job dude.. looks like a solid lower body session. The seated hammy curl hits a slightly different angle than the lying, and your lower lumbar is locked in place so its harder to 'cheat' by lifting your ass off. Definitely rotate them. Also, since your new to the stiff leg dead, practice 'popping' your hips near the top of the movement and really squeeze your hams and glutes at the lockout. Almost imagine your slamming a chick from behind. It sounds funny, but when you start stiff legging or dead lifting 3-400+, that 'hip pop' is going to make or break your lift.
