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.

Tuesday I opted to get in a final training day of some really light lower body work. Being bench only I wasn't worried about getting in some very minor work to barely get a sweat going and feel good, and I got out. I feel really good about where my training cycle has put me for this meet, and I'm ready to hit the platform come Saturday.
