    Note: My squat may seem a little off compared to everything else. But its because I dont have a squat rack or anything like that. I just have a regular flat bench. So when I do my squats I have to just lift the bar off the floor and over onto my traps. And I can't get more than 110 lbs up over my head so thats pretty much all I can squat for now.

    Everyones comment will be greatly appreciated.

    Good judgment comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgment.
