    If you can't be a good example, at least be a terrible warning.

    Geez C. I don't know if I can even get 265 for 2 reps. Maybe if I didn't do so many pre-sets. Anyhow, that's awesome! Great strength, keep up the good work man.

    You should have seen how slow the bar moved on the 2nd reps, but it went up - Wish me luck for next time.

    I've had multiple shots of the four horseman in the same night, and let me tell you - that is NOT a good idea.

    It was at a bachelor party so we all tried to out drink each other. To reiterate - NOT a good idea.

    Workouts are looking awesome CoCoa! Definitely increased quite a bit since your first journal.

    I'm telling ya. It's done in four shots. One of EACH with no break.



    NEVER a good thing in the end. But SO good on the way.

    I thought they were mixed but you had to do 4 of them. Same effect in the end though I guess.
