Overall, happy with this workout. On the squat, this isn’t a PR but the weight felt pretty light. So light in fact that I made the mistake of squatting way too fast and tiring myself out instead. Doh! It took me a little longer than usual to get warm today, so each of my warm up sets (from 45# up to the triple at 150#) was paused at the bottom, which helped me get loose.

Front squats felt pretty great. The leg press was tough, so I will keep the weight the same there. The leg curls and extensions felt good and I will bump the weight next time. The calf raises were tough; I didn’t get as much of a stretch as I wanted so I could handle the weight, so I will keep the weight the same next time.
