Not sure how many people will remember me, but I stopped keeping a log on here about a year ago (due to other comitments). I've been strength training for about 4 years now (wow, doesn't feel that long!), done a couple of amateur powerlifting/team strongman competitions during that time. Notable programs I've done are stonglifts, Jim wendler's 5/3/1 (just started a cycle of this recently), Madcow 5x5 and some powerlifting programs.

6ft tall, weighed about 68kg when I started. Currently about 88kg (nearly at my heaviest ever, was 89-90 at one point), hoping to pass the 90kg mark and beyond soon.

So hi to everyone!


To mods; seems like the topic of my log has been locked, can someone unlock it please?

Hey chewy, nice to see you on here again! I'm eager to see how much you're pulling these days - last time you posted I think you deadlifted around 250 kg...

Cheers for all the kind messages!

asparagus, I haven't had the best year training wise. I haven't used a belt for months, working on my raw strength. But hopefully I'll beat my old PB of 245kg without a belt at some point in the future :)

Just made a massive update to my log!

Log is looking great, interesting points you make about the belt as well. Looks like I have a few videos to work my way through tomorrow!

For whatever reason I can't seem to be able to post in your actual log.. My iPad spazzes out and kicks me off! But awesome to see you're still kicking ass and things are looking up for you dude! Will be checking in regularly!

Welcome back, I recently came back too. It feels good when you know you have that support for being a healthy fit vegan.
