    pressing looking very good cards, i have some work to catch up!

    i noticed that our deads are pretty similar (i think i could max out at about 325 or so now), how abouts we have a race to 400, unless you're scared that is?

    Definitely some awesome work ethic in here, ill be sure to stick around.

    Eating is fun isnt it? Lifting big is like two sports in one! Eating is one half and lifting is the other!

    Deads are still strong as hell. You'll nail it next time easy. Where is your sticking point at btw? For me its prying it off the floor. Once I hit the top of my shins its cake.
    If you know the sticking point then you know what needs the extra TLC!

    sweet PR man. Its so much different for bench than it is squats or DL ya kno? You can throw 2 tens on each side for squat or DL and pull a PR and then maybe even stack 2 more and do it again... but for bench its 5-10lbs at a time

    lol sorry for the rant but keep it up big guy you'll have 2 plates sooner than you think and then you'll really be wantin to bench more!

It is nice to keep track of progress though. 235 for one was awesome since i hit 225 3 weeks ago. Can't wait until im repping out 225 for 5 and 10. I'm not strong by any means but for my body weight i think i'm doing alright.
