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 in some light extra leg work. With the meet approaching soon, I'm basically just trying to do enough leg work to maintain my conditioning and strength. I'm trying to pick good, friendly movements, and things that are going to help ensure I' not in the gym forever. I cranked this session out in under 45 minutes and I was dripping sweat. A really good morning training session.
