thanks luvthetest! very inspirational hearing your opinion!the age issue sucks! 20 years ago ida bounced back off the floor instead of laying there!i will keep pushing, i realize when to stop, as in touch and go deads, ive always been a dead off the floor guy, but got an idea from seeing videos and my deads started climbing through the roof! 10lbs a week i was adding! come to find out, my left hamstring didnt feel the same way( the one they grafted from)started cramping like a bastard! so, back to standard deads.
