    It's more like they handled me. I'm hating this feeling/being weak crap. Not that I was ever really that strong, but at least, even when I failed an attempt, I felt strong and was moving some respectable weight. Now the weights are low and they feel heavy as f**k.

    Thanks Coke. I've been fairly consistant with it all lately. I actually feel like I could step in and fight right now. Conditioning is good, skills are good. The only thing that's lacking is strength, and even that isn't bad for a fighter. It's just bad in my eyes for me.

    Suppose to do a few heavier speed sets once in a while. 275 goes up pretty fast, but it takes some effort to do so.
