    Squatted 375x8 ATG last night, not sure if it's a PR but I suppose it could be. No wraps or belt.

    22 - 5'10@236lbs!
    Bench - 325 (old)
    Squat - 455x2 (old)
    Deadlift - 500(old)

    Total: 1280lbs 100% raw




    The key to my exercise program is this one simple truth: I hate my body.

    Hey thanks Tank. Means alot.

    Was adding 10lbs to squats and deads every workout for a long time. I guess you can accomplish alot when your 18, eating 5,000 calories a day, and lifting right.

    Hoping for a 315 Squat by Christmas.
