Well, looks seems like my lower back is healed after I strained some muscle back there.

I managed to do a measly 500lbs hook grip deadlift (video) last Friday. Haven't deadlifted 500lbs since over 1 year ago!

Journey to a 3x bodyweight, 600lbs deadlift begins now!

Ever since I started taking strength training seriously, I was bitten by the Iron Bug. Then it burrowed under my skin and laid eggs in my heart. Now those eggs are hatching and I... the feeling is indescribable.
