    Damn, your squats look really explosive for being 4-months post op. Are you feeling a leg dominance/ compensation at all? I always get a nice grin when people have knee reconstruction and do amazing things.
    My road to powerlifting:
    ===thecityalive is dead meat===
    Current RAW PRs:
    Bench: 255 (9/30/13)
    Dead: 515 (9/2/13)
    Squat: 435 (9/26/13)
    Total: 1205 lbs.
