Bench 145kg (wrist wraps)
Dead 210kg (belt)
Squat 160kg (belt) (my knees are rubbish and struggle bad in the hole)

Today I pulled a single arm dumbell clean and press (from the floor) for a double at 47.5kg, only got a single with the 50kg with my right hand though, my left didn'teven get the clean, finished my sess with a single clean shoulder press at 102.5kg.

Ok for my age, well, not my squats, my squat is rubbish.

In saying that, my arthritis dictates my training now, and currently, my right rotator cuff has requested copious amounts of panadol and alcohol.

How are your numbers going?

You would know all about the privileges of rank old mate, or should I just call you sir.......

Meanwhile, I have to go somewhere to do some admin stuff.........(read: coffee)
