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 wrapped up some good back and bicep work before the Fourth. Just some good quality work to get in after a good heavy bench day the day prior. I was definitely feeling it, and things were strictly by feel for the day. I kept the pace pushed, and it ended up being a blood flow based workout more than anything else. It's about time I start pulling the total volume down soon anyways.
