    not sure how it is in the uk, but in the us you can make over 200k after you pass all your exams + 10 years of experience. after 20 years over 300k. check the dwsimpson website for more info. career in analytics is also an option if you are in stats or math.

    Nice! I benched 200 yesterday. It's pretty much all traps, front delt, and tricep. After the meet I need to break the weight down to 135lbs and start benching right because I'll have a life time of shoulder problems if I don't fix my upper trap dominance and any sort of work that is making me move that way is just going to ingrain the muscles to be tighter. Shit sucks. At least I'll be squatting and pulling in the 300s, happy with that.

    i hope you forgot to include pecs there and aren't actually benching with your traps, delts and triceps.

    Not a lot of pecs going on. It's pretty much a lying overhead press, sorta how Wendler benches. I'll fix it though, I was on the right track but went on an LP and pushed it a bit too far and went back to my old form ways.

    I'll read that over, thanks.

    What sucks is if I had a decent bench I'd actually be posting an awesome total for someone only powerlifting for a year.

    Nope. It seems like a good time but it's 3 days of Olympic Lifting, Gymnastics, and Powerlifting. I'd be super interested in the powerlifting parts with Travis Mash and Nuckolos but for $600...

    Pulled 455 today -- matches my previous best from last year while weighing 10lbs less. Came up pretty slow but kept with it and managed to lock it out.:slayer:

    That boxing gym's looking really good, GN.

    Think I've said it before. but I'm gonna join a local olympic weightlifting & powerlifting gym as soon as this year is over. Super stoked about it.
    Supposedly is one of the best lifting organizations in Sweden with former world class lifters. The 2012 record holder for bench for the 110 kg weightclass, Stefan Jamroz, trains there.

    My sister is almost an actuary. You can make a lot of money, depending on what you do, but your hours can also be hectic. What specifically do you want to do and why do you think actuarial science or finance/stats combo will get you there?

    lolol didn't even notice.

    What happened to the t-shirt idea? Can we just agree on a simple design? Maybe just have "RHET" written on the front?
