Last week (July 5th through the 11th) was my first full week of full-body workouts. I have to say, I really enjoyed it. Full-body workouts really feel good, and they feel POWERFUL. Really powerful. I thought I would post the results of my first full week of these workouts, both for my own inspiration, but also, to get critiques and opinions from anyone else.
I said before, that I like to keep track of the total weight lifted. To me, this can be a great measure of how much actual work is being done. There are some exceptions to that. The leg press machine allows you to push the weight your are working at a 45 degree angle. This greatly reduces the effective weight you are working against. So while I may be able to do a 700 lbs leg press, in my opinion, that is actually less work than a 200lbs squat.
So you may ask, why do the leg press at all then?
