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 morning training was some heavy overloaded bench shirt work and using some reverse bands. My goal for this session was to match what I had hit with the reverse light band set up, and it was a really good set. Things definitely felt heavy, but I'm pleased with how everything moved and is looking. I'm continuing to stack up some raw PR's as well, so now it's just time to dial things in a bit more.

After benching and church, I hit the trails with Adrian on some horse back riding, and I was beat afterwards. Talk about an awesome day.
