This is the VLOG from the day of our fourth HEAVY DUTY™ workout.

I woke up in the middle of the night (about 4am) and couldn't sleep. I felt hungry, and started to get uptight. I was thinking how I really need to get some good rest prior to the leg workout today. This only made it more difficult for me to get back to sleep. After about an hour I got up and had a small whey protein shake.

Funny, even though I have only slept for a couple hours I feel great. Muscles feel super full and pumped after all the carbs last night during the UFC fights.

Workout

The workout was AWESOME! and brutal all at the same time. This was our second leg workout since starting the HEAVY DUTY™ program and it felt different from the first leg workout.

Initially I noticed just from doing my warm-up sets a huge pump in my quads. I only did about 3 total warm-sets on the leg press (mainly because I was trying multiple leg press machines to determine which was going to be most comfortable) but after my warm-ups my legs were so pumped that walking walking around was becoming awkward. I even started to think they were cramping a little.

The first exercise was leg extension (to pre-fatigue the quad) to failure looking for 12 to 20 reps at the slow cadence of 4 seconds up, 2 second pause at the top (max contraction) then 4 seconds down and then immediately up again. No pauses allowed just constant movement.

I felt great so I went up in weight about 20 lbs since our first leg workout. Immediately my legs were shaking/trembling so bad I was shaking the whole machine. It was hilarious. Try to see if you can see the leg shake on the video. I should have shaken paint for Home Depot LOL. Even though I was shaking like a "paint stirrer" the weight felt easy. The first couple of reps I thought I would get 20 total reps for sure... then I got to rep number 4 after almost 1 minute of constant slow movement and tension.

I had actually increased my cadence count so I would be sure not to go to fast. I was on about a 5 second up, 2 second max contraction and 5 seconds down. By rep 5 my legs were on fire and I thought that I should have used a lighter weight. I kept pushing and ended up hitting failure on the 12th rep.

Then I stumbled to the leg sled (leg press) which was loaded again with a weight that during my warm-up almost felt like air. I began pressing up and down like a piston without stopping in a slow rhythmic fashion. Man, after rep three I thought for sure I was going to stop... somehow the sled kept moving. I felt like my thighs were going to catch fire, the burn was BAD!! I couldn't believe it though... every time I brought the sled down i was able to push it back up. I failed on the 11th rep.

The ab work also gave me some grief. last time I did 9 reps with a 45 lb plate, and this time the number was the same. I got to 8 and I thought I had two more in me, finished 9 and then for 10 I started to go up and I felt just a massive pain in my traps... almost like I was flexing them as hard as I could, and I probably was. I know I was maxing it out and I was probably squeezing every upper body muscle I had. 1. Leg Extension: 170lbs 11 reps with failure on the 12th
2. Leg Press: 6 plates 10 reps with failure on the 11th (superset)
3. Hybrid Seated/Standing Calf Raises: 2 plates per side 11 reps with failure on the 12th
4. Sit-Ups: Holding 1 plate on chest 9 reps with failure on the 10th
