Don't mean to be invasive, but how is this plan working for you?

Hey Fatt,

Nope, not invasive at all...no worries.

The plan is, well, going according to plan. :)

I came up with this routine in June of 07'- I've altered it since then..which you want to do with fitness plans..change it up and what not..I get all the lifts for my routines off of bodybuilding.com. It's nice because they show you, through video, how to do each lift properly.

Happy lifting. ~SS
