Quads and hamstrings

I had much more energy than I've had in a long time, for various reasons. (1) I had a good night's sleep for the first time in more than two weeks. (2) Cher gave me a lift to the gym, so I didn't knacker my legs by cycling before a leg session. (3) I went to the gym mid-morning, not, as Kristen calls it, "the crack of stupid."

Back squats
95lb x 5
115lb x 5
145lb x 5
165lb x 5
180lb x 5
195lb x 2, 2

I think my failure to get more than 2 reps at 195lb was more to do with confidence than my legs giving out. This is the first time I've done heavy back squats without safeties since my adductor cleared up, and I thought I was going to fail and gave up on trying a third rep each time.

Leg extensions
87.5lb x 10, 10
Drop sets - 87.5lb x 10, 62.5lb x 10, 37.5lb x 10

Straight leg deadlifts - 215lb x 5, 5

Leg press (burn) - 120lb x 40

Leg curls
50lb x 12, 12
Drop sets - 50lb x 8, 25lb x 12

Dumbbell straight leg deadlifts (burn) - 40s x 40
