    Nice box squattin, the situation. Really nice. Things are taking off again, big time. Awesome.
    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

    I've got Power Pants, too! I thought I was the only one with the newb gear! Huge numbers, dude. How much do you think you get out of them? I can get mine on and ready to go in less than a minute and I would say I get maybe 25 lbs out of them?

    Thanks Keith! I like them for the hip support. Id say 20-25ish is about right. Hopefully soon I can afford a real pair of briefs and get back into some gear training.

    That's exactly what I use them for. I use them every time I pull sumo and I doubt I get more than 5 lbs out of them. But yeah, I'll be getting some gear hopefully in the near future, I'm just not in the right financial situation to do so right now.

    Holy ****! I never knew you were that strong for your body weight!! You had a plate hanging from you and banged out 10 reps?! I don't think I can do that and I'm 175, LOL.

    Thanks guys


    Its been a tough week. I thought I was rebounding from being sick, but now my chest is so congested, I cant take in deep breaths. I tried to squat yesterday, and I couldnt get any air in me. I would just cough my head off every time. Disappointed and feeling lazy, so hopefully I kick this soon...
