Now that I've given my body some rest after the APF Summer Bash, I'm running an off season training cycle, where my goal is to build upon my healthy movement, and hopefully hit the platform raw, full power in late 2017 or mid 2018, and rack up another 10x bodyweight total.

On Monday I opted to get in some back and bicep work in the garage. After all the knee issues lately, I'm pretty much killing time until I see the PT, so lots of upper body work will likely be happening for a few weeks. I just really focused on getting a good pump and getting some solid work in to keep my mind off my knee issues. I also scheduled an appointment with the PT for Wednesday, so hopefully I'll have some news from that about my approach to getting things going in the right direction.
