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.

Well even though Saturday's training really wasn't all that great, my training session on Sunday went rather well. I decided since I was on the final week of the three week wave, that I would just finish it out strong and then kick up some rocks after I see the PT. It wasn't a big PR, but at least my bench press is feeling okay still. Hopefully I can get another bench press meet in at some point if my knee and back can't really seem to cooperate as I'd like them too. A bit of a rushed training session at 7am due to trying to make it to church, but all in all a much better day than Saturday.
