DesktopWeb FormText   brawn : stupid leg workoutsThu, 24 Apr 2008 01:35:19 GMT # 

legs haven't been feeling strong lately. but they had last week off, so it was time to get something done. either grow or break ... words to live by. so i started out on a (medium difficulty) leg press with 90 lbs for 8 reps. add 2 plates each set for 9 more sets to end up with 900 lbs for 8 reps. my previous max on the same machine had been 900 lbs for 5 reps (2 months ago). happy about that increase. actually, i was happy until i tried to walk down the stairs. you know its a good workout when you're basically doing dips to get down the stairs. and when your hoping your legs dont cramp when you're driving home. at this point, my body has gone into what i guess is mild shock, because i'm feeling somewhat ill. walking is going to suck tomorrow. forget about taking the stairs ...

... unless they've been overly protected :

3 handrails
paint caution on each step
painted caution message is facing the proper direction for each side
posted caution sign to the side
warn both sets of people that might be going up or down the steps
have more steps in the drawing, than the actual number of steps
what ... no 'watch for ice on steps'?
