    Nothing heavy on the legs/back until we train now

    Thanks Husky. You're right about having someone there to yell at you.

    Speaking of which....when are you coming down for a crew workout? How far North do you live?

    Good question... actually I live in Uxbridge... it's about 20mins north of Whitby... but work in Scarborough... where do you guys train? I saw that cricket_fire is in Welland right now...

    Could definitely use some form help and tips...

    Read your post in my log about the triceps... could be something... I do mostly compound stuff, so maybe start adding in some band pushdowns at the end of training along with my bicep work... not really sure about this...

    Well I keep an eye out for the location... if it fits with my schedule I don't mind driving to learn a bit!

    315 look great in the video, and 325 came up pretty well too... looks like you've smashed this goal!
