I both love and hate the leg day workouts. I love because the gains of one hour of work last for the next 48 hours. No other exercise gets you that much in return. I hate because it is incredibly hard (assuming you are not mucking around and trying to push yourself) to do swings and squats holding weights and keeping the correct form.
Facing every single Thursday feels terrible. But I suck it up hold the weights anyway. It is not that scary once I shut my mind and take the barbell onto my shoulder.
