2x BW deadlift after 7 years off is good stuff man, same with the bench press. What sort of experience do you have with the big lifts?

Hey David, thanks for checking out my log. I graduated high school in 2005, I played football then and lifted pretty often. I was about 200-205 lbs then and I can remember benching 315, squatting 400+. Since then I have been training in MMA, and more recently ran a full marathon. Im 45lbs lighter and havent been in the traditional globo gym for about 7 years now.
