Thanks, Ravi, BtB, and Squatter! I will do my best.
Thanks mab! I had a great time with you and your family. For sure we will do a meet again. I'll get you down to Richmond or I'll come to West Virginia if a meet pops up over your way. Thanks again for all your help and doing the videos, Alex
Thanks, Kuyt! I have studied carb back loading and a few other lower carb ideas. None seem like things I can follow, but I do know I can limit my carbs to totally clean sources and that that has a good effect on me. I plan to be totally strict. No junk, not even for a reward for myself. Totally clean for one month and see where I'm at. Cross your fingers!
Thanks for your suport. New routine starts tomorrow and can be found here:

We'll see. There's almost surely going to be a meet in Richmond next year, so the plan is to get into good shape and go after a bigger total there.
