I had to check my ego and try to follow it very strictly but my lifts have all slowly but surely increased. Even my squats which I had pretty much given up on lol. Best of luck OP.
    Damn, I could never find a sick deal on converse or vans. I got mine for 12 bucks from H&M. They always have these fairy type tennis style shoes from the 90's for men. I end up getting a couple when I see them for the gym. Mine are always dogged cause the gym floor is mopped once a year.

    Good luck, Mitch!


  2. Thank you all for the advice, I started 5/3/1 today and checked my ego for sure. Started 90% of my 90% 1RM for DL.

    Side note: could not get a squat video done yet, but will try again and post

    This is part of the point I was trying to make about the coaches that oversaw your training. They obviously were not doing they're jobs.
