    Very impressed with the squat and deadlift numbers you are putting up, especially with not feeling 100%. Good work in here.

    It's OK, I wasn't a fan of it at first but it's grown on me. There's nothing to look at though, only old women with fake tits.

    Did you reset your dumbbell press? That lift is such a bitch.

    What's your job?

    I didn't reset the press as much as it was DE day and I wanted to get some extra volume in.

    As for my job, I work in a distribution center. I currently help resellers purchase large quantities of IT equipment while working with vendors to provide special pricing programs, ETAs on product arrivals, and other things of that nature.

    As for the promotion, I'll be moving into a role where I help develop and put together leasing agreements for customers.

    My new layout for lower: ME will be Squat Variation/GM , Deadlift Variation/Front Squat. I'll also be doing abs, hamstrings, and glutes.
