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.

Wednesday's session still had me feeling good enough to get some good speed work in. Overall some really good progress in bar speed and even on my work up sets. Some typical back work afterwards and I called it a day. I had to cram this just a little bit before going back to work, but I'm happy to see my bench press is still staying rather strong.
