    Still crazy busy.. quick update, did dead's on Saturday.. 3 reps at 180kg, 190kg an 202.5kg an a single at 220kg. Hard work as was sore from squat day! Then did pendlays, hamstring work and pull ups. Back into it tomorrow. Hopefully get three trainings before conference on Thursday then back to it without so many interruptions on Monday!
