Workout, Day 16

I worked out my legs and back today:
1. Leg curl: 110 lb
2. Leg press: 315 lb
3. Calf press: 315 lb
4. Leg extension: 105 lb
5. Hip adductors: 110 lb
6. Hip abductors: 110 lb
7. Back extension: 45 lb
8. Lat pull: 42.5 lb
9. Lying row: 40 lb
10. Seated row: 85 lb
11. Assisted chinup: 110 lb
I think I’ll increase the weight next Monday for the calf press and leg press. The leg press I do is a seated one. I find if I have the seat further back, it’s not as hard on my arthritic knees.
I am considering lowering my reps from 15 to 8 and increasing my weights. I run short of time some days, and this could help out. It may also help me bulk up a bit. I’m especially trying to build my pecs, back, shoulders and calves. If it works out well enough, I may even be able to get a bit of cycling in.
