Is that Brian in that video with you doing squats and overhead press? If so, haven't seen him in years. Hope he's doing well.

You guys are looking strong!

What's been happening, hope all is okay. Guessing you're just taking some time out from your journal rather than your training. MF

Thanks for the kind words everyone, was just taking a break from logging. I had a note of some of the stuff I was doing, but not all of it. Robert, that is Brian - still Vegan and training. I've worked for his company Strength Shop since the end of May. Notable vegan items that can be a pain to find elsewhere are the weightlifting shoes and powerlifting belts :)

First a quick non training update. Things are really great just now, I'm happy with my now-girlfriend that I met 3 or 4 months ago. Just had my first week off since starting my job (which I'm still loving) and had a great holiday away, went to Orkney (island off the north cost of Scotland) for a few days during. Went for a lot of walks and was so relaxing.

Great work on all those deadlift PRs, Chewy! Hell, you're only 5 lbs. behind my all-time best but you're about 55 lbs. lighter in bodyweight, you're making me want to give up and switch to bodybuilding now :)

Looks like 2013 is going to be the year for you to hit in the 270kg range, at your bodyweight that's going to be a massive number for a pull, can't wait to see the day it happens! :)

Also noticed that you did a "rocks on the beach workout" In june me and some friends took a road trip up to cornwall for the week to see blink182 and chill out, we stayed in a dodgey cottage by the beach and did the exact same thing with the rocks on the beach stone overhead presses deadlifts etc so satisfying to chuck em ahha

Hey Chewy - we've got a new strength table up for 2012. Your lifts are inspirational to a lot of us here - it would be great to get your numbers up on the board if you are so inclined!
