George, my brother of the iron, I often listen to AC/DC while lifting as well as Metallica, Disturbed, VanHalen, and many others. You’re dead on with that suggestion. I didn’t mention my benching because I think too many people concentrate on that. In my opinion, the squat and deadlift are truer barometers of a person’s real strength. Also, I am dealing with an old biceps tendon tear that knocks my benching down buy I’m rebuilding it again.

I tore my biceps dealifting 600 lbs in a powerlifting competition. Wow, I think I just thought up a fitness story about recovering and persisting after injury. Ha! Life is fun.

Bringing real feelings along with messages of inspiration and imagination to life. Awakening is the symptom of my infectious condition. Poetry is my condition.
