Old School Strength
 
Decided to start a new log in this section. Sitting at about 5'7" and hovering between 145-150lbs.

For those new to my insanity: I train hard and heavy and constantly strive for improvement of some sort every session. My major training influences include old-time strongmen, Jamie "Chaos and Pain" Lewis and his blog (ChAoS & PAIN), Brooks Kubik, and alcohol.

I've been back in the gym for a month now after a 4-month layoff, so I'm still getting my groove back. Today consisted of bottom-position benching, power shrugs, and strict curls. Next update will be on Friday.

Good to have you back IM. Subbed and waiting for PRs.

Great start, IM! I love that video, too. Press always seems to suffer most from time off, I've noticed.

I've been playing around with variations of that on paper recently. Tried it on bench once.

Solid work IM. Like the video too. Great pics.

Thanks Steve. I'm still working on pushing everything back up; thankfully most of my lifts are improving rapidly.
