    Pretty much anything over 4 wheels on squats and 5 on deadlifts stops all gym traffic in a Commericial gym. Fucked up thing is they act like it’s nascar, just waiting for the wreck. Pretty damn rare someone will come spot

    Today I am officially out of var, 200mg test only going forward.
    Weighed this am and surprisingly down a half pound, so current weight 215. I have 4 to 6 weeks to cut as hard as I can. Want to eat again when my equipment shows up. Heading out to do sprints with a buddy right now.

    Got the sub floor for the lifting platform screwed together. After my sprints will put down the nice 3/4 piece, cut and install the mats. Will post pics when done.

    Other than stencil if I can get and a top coat the platform is done. Still need to build blocks this weekend. Now I am even more anxious to have the equipment get here lol.

    Added up the plates I have coming, and I have 595 lbs of plates. Allows me up to 640 with the bar if I could fit them all on the bar that is. I will still need 2 more 45s as I progress. Not sure how the 25s will be on the dumbell handles but we will see. Again if the 25s ok amd I can fit it, I have dumbells to 90lbs then.

    Did you get 15” or 20” handles? I forgot to specify when I suggested them—but the 20” handles hold much more weight.

    It doesnt look like I am going to get the logo. I cant find anyone open that can actually do it. Stained it already, and now will just do a top coat, maybe. Blocks will built this weekend.

    I am only 1 week in since ordering, I have 3-5 more weeks to wait, if they told me the truth. I cant sleep, or think of anything else lol.
