Nice weight loss! Strength will come back no question, esp. bench for you. That's your lift (like on Seinfeld "that's my move!")
And avatar is certified Angus Prime!
Funny, for me I can speed up warmups for squats and deads to get to working sets faster, but not bench. If I blitz into working sets, it's not pretty on the ole pressing muscles.
Good stuff. Gonna have to change the name to LeanJosh or StrongJosh or something!
