I would love to take a shot on this one. Are you going to keep this open for a while, I won't be able to knock this out for a couple weeks.

They were just talking about some of the DL at the combine being around the 250-270 mark and doing 12 reps and just not cutting it to impress anyone

10!


Man, 18 ORM! That's awesome.

And no bets, BigJosh!! You could probably lose 100 pounds and still out bench me! When you beat me we can call it even for the squat challenge. I wouldn't wish lunges on anyone. haha.
