    It shows up on my computer. They were on facebook though. So, maybe because you don't have facebook you can't see them. I saved them on my computer then attached them though so I thought it would work.

    I take it you're done with 242? Based on your RUM performance 1900 should be pretty damn easy if you gain a little more weight.

    I am brother!!!! I got one more shot at 1900 this year. I was hoping to be able to compete 3x this year, but it looks like I can only do 2. Since I already did RUM, I got one more. Hopefully I'll total around 1900-1920@275. Than many maybe I'll go for 1900@242 after that, we'll see!!! I didn't get a chance to cut weight using Brian Carroll's methods from his eBook, but when I'm ready I'll cut down and give it a go!

    Brian in your garage are you just using rubber mats with nothing under them in the squat rack? I'm bolting mine down this weekend, was trying to decide if it was worth it to actually build a platform or just throw down some horse stall mats and bolt through them in to the concrete.
