    Eh...a little heat can't stop guys like us!!! That's for the weak!!!

    If it's a training day, I train...and obviously you do too...good stuff!

    Insanely strong pulling as always brotha. Sorry I haven't been keeping up on the journals a lot lately, but my job is killing me these days.

    Anyway, keep it up brotha!

    Some days you lift light, and other days you blow my mind with the weights you use. You've obviously got things figured out for yourself.
