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 leg training was a little on the crazy side. Some amazing pumps and overall good amount of work was put it. I was just on this day, and really ready to get in some hard work. Since I was feeling good, I cranked the volume (and headphones) and just went to town. Give that quad superset a go something, absolutely brutal.
