03/20/13 -  Diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis. I am enjoying my challenges. My doctors wanted me to be able to do just basic house chores lol. I still have a body to rebuild to my specs.

03/2012 My back is a work in motion, My dead lift is 600 plus lbs. This type of workout drains me and my myasthenia gravis kicks into high gear. I can usually tell when my left eye becomes droopy compared to my right eye. I always push for an awesome workout.

02/2013 Today my leg workout included leg press over 1200 pounds for 20 repetitions per set . 

02/2013 - I am utilizing is the leg press for single leg movements. Pressing 12 x 45 lbs @ 14 single repetitions

03/2013 - A good day for working back and 240 pull ups later, I feel drained :) Yeah buddy!!!!

04/2013 - Leg Press 1440 lbs for repetitions. I could not load anymore plates LOL

Imagine a man going from being able to lift 700 lbs to only 3 lbs in a short period of time, not being able to walk outside without the assistance from his friends. Imagine falling down in the street in front of the pet store and you have no strength to get back up. Then after countless months of rebuilding 60% your strength you lose it again. Finally, with hard work and dedication he regains his functionality, weight and strength. A fictional character's story - NO! This is D. McLean's journey!
