Last log had plenty of ups and downs lets hope this one is more on the upswing.

I always try to set goals, and when I have looked at my old logs I have done a pretty shitty job of reaching them.

DL - 600 (Max currently 540)
Squat - 500 (Max Currently 455)
Bench - 325 (Max currently 290, was 365)

Compete in the 220 class this year, blah blah, thanks as always for stopping by.

Good luck Matty. With your improved heath you should nail your goals.

I am gonna have to realize, that through age and injury your gonna hit more stumbling blocks.

I think with age you just have to smarter. You’ve clearly learned that. No doubt it will pay off.
