Nice! 600 pull will be epic. You're not too far away. Haha, yeah, I can't really grind them either and I can always tell a bit of a strength boost because I manage to grind one up. I like a heavy single before reps too. Works a treat.
Good stuff, Tann.

Hack away at anything which isn't essential. Do what you love, and do it often. Fazc.
Everything competes for recovery so more assistance is not always the best idea. miked96
