I apologize for the scattered figures: SP program would not line the columns up. emoticon

I have another four weeks on this program. The plan boasts that one can increase their ability to lift weights by 100-pounds after 12-weeks. The proviso of course is that nutritious meals should be a regular part of your training. After 8-weeks Iím impressed with the results. emoticon

Whether a 100-pound increase on the presses occurs is dependent on my shoulders; my right has been replaced while the left was operated on. So Iím reluctant to rush that personal record. But my plan is to continue on this course for 24-weeks. Have a good lift, Earl

    You are doing amazing considering that you have had
a shoulder replacement. Keep on lifting and eating right.

    You are making fantastic progress!! If you don't make 100, you don't make 100.... you arent competing with anyone so any improvement is a new PR!
