nice squat! Bench isn't shabby either.

How're you finding the gear? I helped a mate of mine put his bench shirt on the other day. Took three of us 20 minutes

Welcome!

"BB"? Did you mean "BP"?

The gear is a completely different animal. I'm enjoying learning how to use it, but it is a difficult endeavor. Raw lifting, I enjoyed the bench more than the squat. Geared, I enjoy the squat more than the bench.

20 minutes sounds about right on the briefs. My shirt is open in the back so 10 minutes.
Thanks TimD.

Dumbbell Rear Delt Row = 145 lbs for 3 reps each hand (01/14/13)

Note: The dumbbell I used is labeled 140 lbs. It consists of fourteen 10 lbs plates on a 1 inch diameter, ~18 inch long handle that I figure must weight at least 5 lbs. 145 lbs is therefore a conservative estimate.

I lifted a 145# dumbbell back onto a rack once since some unthoughtful person left it on the floor. I had to use 2 hands and it nearly killed me.
