While I might not still be back to 100%, I'm healthy enough to compete bench only. Therefore, I am currently in meet prep, where I will compete at the APF/AAPF Summer Bash on July 29th, 2017. I'll be competing the 132-lb. weight class, multi-ply, where I look to bench press 500+ pounds, yet still mending my low back issues.

Monday had some more bodybuilding based back training. Some rather heavier movements since I wasn't in the bench shirt the day prior, and really started to crank up the rowing to get my back as big and thick as I can before the meet. I've still got some time to try to pack on some specific size, which is a good thing. Not much else to report for the training day though. Rather simple and to the point.
