Your numbers are amazing! Good job on staying so focused. Hope your shoulder gets well without surgery. Keep up the PT.

Wow, 3 x 180 bench. Congrats on that squat PR. Your numbers are crazy good. I think were needing new pics. Hope you're having great fun. Diet looks great too.

Guess I see new squat stands coming or squats at the gym, in the interim
