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's training session was a bit of a nut case. I got this great idea that I didn't want to do a lot, but just blow my legs up and get out. I got this lovely leg press idea from readying Mark Dugdale's log one day, and I thought, what the hell. Brutal, but quick and efficient. I don't think this training session even took 45 minutes. Give it a go sometime if you really want to test your mental fortitude.
