This isn't a real post, except to say that wow! - on Friday I went up 40 pounds on my last set of v-squats, just to say that I did it with three 45-pound plates on either side of the machine. That's 270 pounds. My ass, quads, hamstrings, and the insides of my thighs were so sore all day yesterday (every time I stood up out of a chair or off the ground my lower body was singing to me), and as of 11:30 this morning they're still sore. But I got through the whole exercise and I'm pumped! Next week I'll add even more weight. Just wanted to share.

You rock, Roder!!! I'm ready to get that sore feeling again, too. Perhaps I will increase my squats and lunges today. Thanks for the inspiration!

Well done! I love it when I can improve on my workouts. It just tells me that whatever I'm doing is working!
