I like the design of the site, a good layout that seems easy to navigate, with plenty of content.

That's pretty schweet. Not my cup of tea, but definitely set up really nice for you (read into it as I'm jealous of your ability and I have to cater to my fat ass). My ONLY criticism - ya got too many 5s and not enought 45s :)

Checked out the website - you are a beast. Keep you butt on the bench at 335, though, but 335 at the end of a workout at 205? That's mad strong.
Thanks TimD.

That's awesome! if investing in a home gym has you actually working out on a regular basis, it’s a better investment than spending monthly dues on a gym you never attend!
