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.
