Going to check my deadlift form next leg workout. I'll use some heavy poundage, because you can't really tell if your form is going to be good when you lift heavy if you only check your form when you're using hardly any weight...

I've come up with a more effective leg day workout:

I. Clean to front squat (1 clean, 2 front squats, deload, repeat) - the extra cleans are to improve form.

II. Barbell overhead squats - might do same thing but with snatches. Think I should

III. Weighted Crunches

IV. Stretching

Is this a good idea? I think this will target my legs better than lunges, which were not the best for me in terms of balance and stiffness in my right knee. Squats feel 10x more natural - much more balanced and puts hardly any pressure on the knees. The only problem I see is using too much upperbody by practicing extra cleans/snatches - I'd wait until the weight became moderate/heavy with no form flaws to stop the extra cleans/snatches, which could be a while...

Cord, I know it seems like I never stick to your advice all the way through, but I feel as though I could be doing more effective exercises, such as these, while working on my stretching to become more flexible.

BTW I will post about 3 workout that I have yet to in a few hours.

I'm going to post the workouts I have written down in my notebook later tonight. I haven't been doing so since I usually just leave it downstairs, where I work out. I haven't really been keeping up with my weight lifting for the past couple months; I got lazy. I am extremely anxious to start working out consistantly, eating cleaner, and making gains. I worked out my legs last night and felt great and I'm going to work out again tonight since I'm going to the Mets game tomorrow and won't have time to work out. Can't wait
