  1. Nice numbers Johnny.  Progressive training is the way to go.  Another methodology you may want to incorporate for a change of pace is

    • Thanks! That book is actually on my “to read” list.

      Not sure about gaining 30 pounds. I’m already quite heavy at my height (5’4″ at 195lbs).

      How well did this book work for you?
