    Thanks man, its gonna be a good race to see if my Bench or my Dead is going to reach back to top form first, my squats seem to be lacking for some reason or another... wasn't expecting that at all, didn't expect to lose much on the squat since my injury had nothing to do with my legs at all.

    This may sound dumb but i know some people do it differently... when you see a program that looks like this...

    Week 1 1x2 @ 75%, what is 1 represent? sets or reps... is it reps x sets or sets x reps... Ed coan has his speed deads listed as 8x3, is that 8 sets of 3 reps, or 3 sets of 8 reps?
