    Strength levels have indeed been steady, including the benching where I hang out more or less with 3pps working set triples...not going for more weight per se these days, actually going for greater explosiveness and speed.

    It's still surreal to me when I see anything in the 700's regardless of whether it's machine or free weight work. Very nice work.

    Nice work Terry, big time shrugs you're doing.

    Do you isolate hams at all in this routine? I noticed it's mainly just squats/presses

    You're just a machine, Coke. The weight, the volume, the consistency.
