Thanks Ancrel. I'm a long way ahead of were I started, but I have an even longer way to go.

Thanks BtB. If I can be pushing 20 reps over 3 sets @ 250 by January, I'll be pretty happy.

My best advice is to find a routine you like and stick with it for at least 6 months. Never miss a training session if possible, add weight or reps every session that you can without your form breaking down too much. Eat and sleep enough. With those few basic things, you can get a very long way.
