    Thank you!

    Just annoying that 100kg felt so heavy considering I've done 120kg before and that flew up! Suppose alcohol and no food does that to you :P

    Happy belated birthday

    Also, I find deadlift varies a lot. Some days I feel amazing and can barely pull 80% of my max, other days i feel crap and go and pull a PR, don't let it get you down

    Not thick or aesthetic by a long shot but progress is progress right?

    I know it's not a great comparison pic because I'm tensing in the second photo but look how skinny it was before haha

    Don't really do flat bench, probably 27.5kg though.

    The decline is about 10 degrees so it's working just as much chest as flat but a little less shoulders.

    Agreed.

    One of my friends seriously injured his knee on them despite doing fairly light (55kg)

    Bit of a Mickey Mouse exercise to be honest..
