    I know we have a PR thread for things like this, but I just wanted to express my gratitude. So many people have posted in my log with help and encouragement, and I finally got a 315squat today. More importantly, I think I finally figured out how to bring my posterior chain into play properly, which had always been a problem for me. I know that's not a big deal for most people, but for me, that's a pretty significant accomplishment. Words can't describe how much the help I have gotten on these boards means to me. I don't want to list names because I'll miss people, but you know who you are.

    *Gets all choked up and teary eyed*

    Thanks a lot guys.

    How much are you weighing right Xtrainer? You should be pretty close to 2xBW.

    Wow, that is just awesome. I'm working towards a 225 BOX squat right now. So, I can only imagine how that must feel. I also congratulate you on bringing your posterior chain into play. I'm working on the same thing right now and it's frustrating. Congratulations on all your hard work and the fruits of that labor.

    Thanks guys.

    I'm around 175, so I'm still a good way off from 2xBW.

    A person with as much conditioning as you should not be able to squat that much.

    Freak!
