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.

Friday I managed to get in a super quick upper fluff session to keep the blood flowing and stay fresh. I had to squeeze this session in between some clients I had, so I got this all taken care of in under and hour. Lots of supersets, and continuous moving. This is also my final day of having carbs in my diet, so I'll be going low carb from here on out to help get my weight down a bit to help with the weight cut. That always sucks, and it'll be the first time I go low carb in about 8 months, so I'm interested to see how quickly the weight comes off and how I handle it.
