I did my first leg day after starting my blog and I think I did alright. This leg day was done at school in my gym class. My legs were a little tired, so I felt like I should have done more exercises (but we ran out of time). Next time I will do a lot more weight on my calf raises and try to do more cart pushes. Is it weird that my dead lifts are really close to my squats?

10/1/12
Squats: 6×3 185 pounds
Straight-Leg Deadlifts: 4×6 155 pounds
Cart Pushes: 1×40 feet 315 pounds
Barbell Calf Raises: 3×20 70 pounds

I made this dip belt for free with materials I found at home. The string is just tied together at the ends and folded a few times. I taped the strings together so they would be easier to control. At the end there is a cambiner that holds both sides of the string together. This is just for informational purposes.

DIY Concrete Weights

This guy has the best idea ever! I think I’m going to try this after I get an Olympic barbell. First, I have to find one on craigslist.Then, I will make these for a cheap 5 cents per pound. << Amazing.
