    5' 10" 235lbs
    usually just under 10% BF (winter is almost here might get a little fat)
    When it comes to lifts, I usually won't list because most people would have a hard time translating

    log clean and press 290lbs
    stone lap and load 420
    farmers 300 per for 150 ft.
    860 truck tire dead (18")

    I really hardly ever max out on the gym stuff, it would be a little too taxing with all the event work I do.

    just curious, brad, with regards to the stone lifting thing:
    im a newb lifter, and am constantly reminded to keep my back straight whenevr lifting to avoid injury. during ur lift, ur back is pretty rounded. Doesnt that invite injury?
