    Nice work. Yeah testing the max for those two lifts would be interesting to see how they have gone up.

    I like Pavel's stuff, pretty simple and effective. What are your plans now, to continue with the program on the SQ and MP?

    Thats really impressive man. Is there any other lifting that took place? Did you not deadlift for 6 weeks? Are you all natural? (Sorry gotta ask) What about cardio? Congrats again!

    Time to answer a few questions

    Is there any other lifting that took place?
    I stuck to the program I posted. The days got jumbled a bit because of my schedule, but for the most part I followed it true.

    Did you not deadlift for 6 weeks?
    That's correct, but I am resuming it now.

    Are you all natural? (Sorry gotta ask)
    Yes

    What about cardio?
    I hump a pack and a rifle up and down the mountains of Afghanistan. When I'm not doing that I don't really feel like doing a bunch of cardio. Closest thing to cardio I did was grappling whenever I could grab a partner and the time.

    What are my future plans?
    I plan on adding mass while still increasing strength. I's like to add about 10 more pounds of muscle. i decided to go with a plan by Chad Waterbury called Anti-bodybuilding Hypertrophy. You can find it on www.t-nation.com in the archives. I also plan on doing more cardio. Interval training and a lot of burpees are in the works.

    Thanks for the support and keep working hard yourselves.

    Im new on here and this topic intrests me. I have been lifting for years, a medium build. I have had problems with seated dumbell presses (one of my fav's). I get a muscle spasm in the back of my neck that leaves me in a mess for 3-5 days...very strange. Anyways, I was curious if anyone else has expeirenced this with seated presses. And if you have does doing them standing alleviate the problem? I cant eliminate shoulder presses, its not an option.
