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.

Sunday's bench training wasn't really a max effort day, but being bench only I got one more quick speed bench session in, and then some blood flow work to keep fresh. I know that I've got to keep some weight in my hands for my bench press to feel good, so this fit the bill nicely. Now we really rest up with just a few more fluff sessions to stay loose and keep the glycogen coming off.
