    I've only been working out for ~6 mos steadily and i'm sure if i can hack it.

    I am currently at about 180-185 and the last time i maxed out i was sitting at 285.

    The guy that was running it and setting it up was telling me about a pause-period for about half a second and then the press.

    What am i getting myself into :noes:

    Oh and its pound for pound
