    My meet Video 12/6/08

    These are the successful attempts from my meet this past weekend. I went 5 for 7, passing my last squat and bench attempts. I missed my opener bench and last deadlift attempt(by a hair). This was my first offical 700 lb squat and my first total @181(I weighed in @174.5).

    Awesome work Chris! you look amazing!
    You will soon see Getfit in OngII Flying Knee Thingys of Doom see if the feisty greek can survive the kicks of Steel Leg From Shaolin Soccer,Dim Mak(def touch) from ChungLee,and Flying Crane by Daniel-san-El Pietro

    Spray it with windex greek!-the famous El Pietro

    You be quiet or i'll clean and press your narrow francophone self-Callahan

    Lift for gains,not glory.Control your ego and the weight

    What a strong girl! This leads me to believe you can severly injure most of the male population-Nick Hatfield

    You're blazing white hot,anyone ever tell you that? Sometimes i think you have fingers faster then Superman when it comes to posts on WBB forums.
