Thanks Hunter! Everything is strapped for shrugs and rack pulls. The bars at Golds are slick as a politician.

815 Rack Pull is out of this world!! Wow!! I have never dated anyone with an 800+ pull before!! I may have to put my tail between my legs when we max attempt!!
THanks Jim! Yeah, I good morninged it a bit, have to work on keeping the form when things get tough. So much easier to just let my lower back raise the weight. Form will always be a work in progress, and I appreciate you keeping me honest on it.

I might be able to pull stupid heavy numbers from a rack, but squatting them is another question. You've got me there.

Congrats. 400 coming on strong. Depth was more than good.
Thanks BtB. 1 rep at a time.
