    I knew you trained them, I just didn't know if you ever did a full meet. I was just wondering since you have huge legs, especially for a bench only guy.

    I'm looking forward to seeing the 800+ video.

    Yeah I get a lot of flak from the bench only guys because its where a lot of my weight comes from so I'm told all the time that I could be a 220er again if I'd quit squatting and deadlifting. What happens when I quit those though, I lose all the power in my hips. Plus I've seen too many benchers screw up their knees because of insane leg drive on knees that weren't built up enough

    I'll tell you why, because he is smitten. He is in deep smit. I tried to talk him into keeping the beard and shaving his head - you should've seen the look on his fiance's face!
