Shit Ross, really impressive stuff. 115 for 5 reps? I remember when you were telling me you weren't even sure you could pull 115kg for a single. Good stuff !!

How are the new squat stands?

Hey everyone! Potential bad news from me... After the most mental gig I've ever been to I've picked up a couple of potential injurys, after loads of stage diving and time in the pit I've fucked my wrist and right shoulder.. I'm gonna try and train this afternoon and see how I get on
