Jeremy Leg Day Training

Jeremy Hopkins pushing his quads here a few weeks ago at 15 week outs from the USAs. At this point we were training quads and hams split on separate days but have recently shifted to just one full leg day a week for him because his legs have turned into a strength for him and now need to focus on some weaker areas more to bring up before the USAs. Here was that Quad workout Leg Extensions that don’t count, 4×25 warm-up to get some blood in the quads Squats: warmup sets of 20 reps to push blood at 135/225/315 and than Pause Squats in the hole for 8-10 reps with 405 and push a set heavy to 495. After this finished Squats with a Drop set going from 405-315-225 (225 focused on slowed control reps going slow on way down and slow on way up to keep constant tension on the quads and to make sure they hit close to failure) H.S. Split Squats 4×10 each leg, more of a close stance going out over the toe some in a controlled motion to really focus on the quad. Hack Squat normal reps but with feet close together, goal was moderate weight as at this point was quite fatigued but to keep pushing blood in. 1 set up of Leg Extensions. Took the back rest off to be able to lean back some without having a back support which emphasized the top portion. Set went like 5 normal/ 5 doubles/ 4 normal/ 4 doubles/ 3/3 2/2 1/1 Than hit...

What I am eating

I like to keep my food pretty simple that way it is easy to prep in bulk and I don’t have to put to much thought into it. The last couple of weeks I have allowed myself to be more relaxed, eat more carbs and not really pay to much attention to the amounts I was eating. I am not dieting for a show so I don’t have an end date like a contest day where I know for sure I will be finished. I got to where I was content around 270 and would fluctuate from 268 to about 273 for about a month and now I want to push a little farther down to about 265 or about another 5 pounds so I would vary between 263 and 268. This is more a lifestyle approach for me where I go through phases where I push my diet harder and than phases where I back off and just go by how I feel and what I want to do. I don’t really have any huge goals hanging in front of me so right now it is getting closer to summer and in a few months I’ll be out at the water park and so for those reasons I want to push a little leaner than i am right now. For me regardless of time of year a lower carb diet works well for me. So when I am not focused to much on cutting than i’ll eat more carbs through having more flexibility to eat whatever for dinner and maybe an extra carb up day during the week...
