Thanks Hunter! Give me another 6 months and maybe I'll get close. As long as you bulk like a maniac!

Nice too see you back on top of the Brute Presses!!

Last but not least, DB Rows must have had you nearly hurling or at the least nauseated haha.
Thanks Jim! Next time I'm getting that 30. One way or another. And yeah, the DB rows are nasty. I feel like taking a nap after each arm.

Just a thought on that squat. I'm not sure it's you actually leaning forward, I think your middle and upper back are rounded a bit.

If you can drive your shoulders back into the bar and keep a straighter mid back on the way up, it might clear up that lean right there. Not an expert, just something I think might help. Squats are still a work in progress for me too. I think squats are pretty much a work in progress for everybody.

You can't move that Brute press to another day? Seems you'll always struggle with any press after benching.

Nice weight loss!
Thanks Mike! And that's a good idea on the squat, I'll keep that in mind next session. For the brute press, its just an accessory, and I want to keep BB OHP as a primary movement so i'm not sure what day to move it to, but I'll take a look. I would like to spark some progress on it.
