    Moar deficits? I hope you mean volume and not the deficit. You would be standing on a bench next.

    If you were still a powerlifter that 600 would have been cake.
    This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy - George Bernard Shaw
