Worked out legs for first time in 11 years

I have not worked my legs with weights for about 11 years. I hurt a knee in high school doing squats and have not done them since. I tried the other day to start again. I did 315 fairly easily once, but I was afraid to try for much more weight. So I did 3 sets of 8 with 205. Today I am so sore that I can hardly walk down the steps! But at least my knees don't hurt. I can't believe that I am so weak!

How big are you?? For 11 years off, I'm impressed that you got 205 24x.

You didn't try to use that line to switch rides with the wife did you?

Unfortunately I have not often been called small

6'3" 265lbs

I tried 315 once and it was not too difficult so I am going to try to work out for a month or so and then see if I can get 400.

Nah, I get to drive it whenever I want!

FYI for the rest of you, my wife just got an '04 Lightning. It's on the quick side

Nope, everything is the same as 03.
