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.

Thursday I was able to get some good solid leg training in during the morning between some clients. I wasn't really feeling it for the day, so I kept things rather conservative, even on the total volume of work and load. Just one of those days where I wasn't feeling it, but wanted to get something in to keep chugging along. It's not much, but it's progress I suppose.
