    Great work. I know you still have quite some time to go, but what are you expecting to hit at the meet?

    Simple day. Monster weights. Nice Brian.
    This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy - George Bernard Shaw

    Brian, I have been slacking. Great work and I agree with your synopsis of how those close grips will help out.

    Bummer youre not getting a Sling Shot just yet. I was looking forward to seeing what ridiculous number you put up.

    Solid bench session Brian. Jealous of your pullups lol.

    Just reading this post is making me want to get one, lol. If I do, I'll probably use it after my close grip work. If I don't get one for this meet cycle I'll have one for the next and I'll probably get the blue one.
