I thought you were super tall because the bar was mounted really high. Then I checked again, realized the squat rack itself isn't as tall as I thought it was. I thought you were like 6'5" from the rack and wondered how long it took you to get to 275 from your height!

Glad to hear you've started going to a gym, Phrost. Did you lift anything, or do you just go there to get ideas for your stories?
