Now that I've given my body some rest after the APF Summer Bash, I'm running an off season training cycle, where my goal is to build upon my healthy movement, and hopefully hit the platform raw, full power in late 2017 or mid 2018, and rack up another 10x bodyweight total.

Tuesday I got in my first dynamic effort lower body session in almost a month, and surprising things felt great. I just wanted to try to ease into everything still, so I didn't really push my pulls too much, and really emphasized my technique on everything as much as I could. It's the first time in about 7-8 months where things are finally feeling rather good, and I'd like to keep it that way. Luckily Adrian ended up training with me, which made the training session much more enjoyable per usual. I did add some stiff leg deadlifts into my training to help build my lower and mid back up some more, while also use using some higher reps and less weight. I know I've still got so much to build back up on, but I feel if I can get my erectors stupid strong again (like they were when I was younger), I think I'll be better off for it. So not an overly exciting training day, but some damn good work for the day that I'm really proud of.
