Solid.

Wow, those deadlifts are looking amazing!

Just wanted to drop by and thank you for being such an inspiration! Seeing your amazing progress on here and on the VBB forums were what made me choose SL5x5 instead of some bodybuilding routine when I started going to the gym! :D

I read through some of this thread and the one on the other site. Just wanted to say thanks for posting as this gives me hope since you started out at about the same place I am.

Also, I like the Thrice quote in the sig line
