I swear this topic is repost every week… not being a dick but did you even attempt the search bar.

Yes I did. I just wanted to make sure I was on the correct path.

Looks good, just tone down the assistance work if you start to feel beat up. But it looks pretty reasonable.

Thanks man!

Go train for six months and find out for yourself if you are on the right track.
