    I'm glad to see you posting on here Mick! I'm familiar with you as I follow Caslow's training and have gotten a lot of help from him. You are definitely one of the best out there at 165, I'm looking forward to seeing your template and Big Iron training ideas!

    Awesome awesome lifting. I'm gonna give that high incline no intensity thing a shot. I usually hit 6.0 incline at around 3.0 and that keeps my heart rate around 120-130.

    Nice work son... crappy about the meet date moving...

    Was wondering where you wondered off to

    Are you actually gaining any weight or still having trouble keeping it up? (I think you are the only guy I know that can lose weight on 4k+ calories...)

    Will be keeping up with your log here.

    i havent maxed out raw squat for a long time, i did 515 a long time ago, but it was probably high, i benched 280 like 2 monthes. I did 500 for 10 on dead 3 weeks ago, but never really for a max single in years, my best ever was 570 a few years ago.
