I’m currently in meet prep for the RPS Lexen Spring Fling in Columbus, Ohio on May 9th, 2015. I will be competing in my first multi-ply meet, going bench only at 148 pounds.

Tuesday was back to some speed work and rep work on the deadlift. Overall another solid training day. I'm playing around a bit with my sets on speed work for my squats, and I think I'm going to like this set up a bit more. It's just a few extra sets every 3 weeks, but over time I'm hoping that it yields some good results.
I also had a bit of a lower intensity day on my grip work. Still some good work, but nothing maximal with a barbell. I can tell my grip is getting a little better so I've just to keep my head down and on top of it.
I've been enjoying training a lot lately, and I can tell you right now, me and the training partners can't wait until the monolift gets here. Moving a bar up and down is starting to get hold. We'll be spoiled soon enough.
