    yo no problem. I forgot the camera at home. If I go home and get it, it takes me an extra 45 mins to get to the gym. Will you be home tonight, I can run it by your place anytime after 8 pm, or you can run by my place. Let me know.

    For back yes, for chest no.

    ...and that 315 squat was low but not quite ATF. Still well below parallel though.
