    My question is this:
    Thats only 10 months ago, how is it that you have added 240lbs to your squat, 310lbs to your hacksquat, a mere 100lbs to your deadlift and 140lbs to your bench in that timeframe without ever hitting a plateau? Please give me some advice?

    cocoa: no problem man, he seems to spend more time dissing you then doing anything for himself.

    maybe he should reevaulate his situation.

    What better way to re-evaluate your situation then to solicite advice from someone who has made incredible gains?
