IMPORTANT NOTICE: At approximately 5:53 PM EST yesterday afternoon, we suffered a hard drive failure on our main database server. I do regular data backups and have duplicate hardware on standby for times such as these. The server was quickly repaired and the backup was restored within hours of the failure. Unfortunately all posts, changes to existing accounts and new user registrations made after early Tuesday morning (February 21) were lost in the crash. If you created a new account between approximately 7:00 AM EST on Tuesday and 5:53 PM EST on Wednesday, then you will need to re-register.

I fully understand that losing even 36 hours worth of posts is quite a inconvenience. I sincerely apologize for any problems this data loss has caused our members. Believe me, I share your stress, but I am also thankful that we were able to get back up and running fairly quickly and with a relatively small amount of data loss. Thanks for your patience and understanding.

I applied a minor security upgrade to the forum software this morning, so you may have to log back in. When you log in, be sure to click the “remember me” box (to the immediate right of the username entry box) or you will be logged out again after 30 minutes of inactivity. If you’ve forgotten your password, you can reset it here; just enter the email address you used when you signed up.

Last night I performed deads for the first time since early January, which is when I injured my lower back. My back has not hurt at all for around two weeks, so I figured it was time for a test. I did the deads last in my workout so my back was nice and warmed up. I also only used four plates, and my form was textbook. By the end of the second set I could feel a bit of pain in the injured area, but nothing serious. I did a total of four sets and, thankfully, there were no “drop the bar and grab my back” moments. I knew this morning would be very telling, and I’m pleased that I’m not in pain right now. Still, there is a definite ache in the injured area. I’m not going to do deads again for a few more weeks, as I’m obviously not fully healed. 225 pounds may not be a lot of weight, but I’m still happy – especially considering that I couldn’t even put on my own socks a month and a half ago!
