Lifted Legs with Cathi

It's been a very long time since I last posted.  It's not that I've been a slacker.  About 13 months back Cathi convinced me to go see a trainer, and within 4 months of that I was in the best physical shape of my life.  I tapered off just a bit with my swimming and the need to put on a little more body fat, but am back at it again and leaning up.  Here is a graph of my progress.  So right now I'm at just under 9% body fat.  Not too bad.  Hoping to get it down to 6 again within a couple months.

This morning I got up at 4:30am and Cathi got up with me, but soon reported that her running partner just texted to cancel she was disappointed.  I didn't want her to get up and get all dressed ready to workout for nothing, so I offered to go to the gym with her and lift.  She typically lifts during the day when the kids are in school and I typically lift at lunch time.   What a great opportunity to workout with my lover!

Today I lifted legs:

Drop sets (Lift reps of 10 (failure), then drop 20% or so of the weight and immediately do another 10 reps)

Squats: 3 x (185, 135)
Leg Press Machine: 3 x (300, 260)
Leg Curl Machine: 3 x (130,110)
Calf Machine: 3 x (310, 280)

Then went swimming....
