Now that I've given my body some rest after the APF Summer Bash, I've began to have some medial knee pain in my right knee. I'm still training hard, but I'm focusing on keeping my low back healthy and addressing my knee issues as well. The goal for 2017 is to end the year completely healthy and have a solid base to build a real training cycle on.

Sunday morning I got in some benching via floor press and using the Swiss Bar. Still running with some sets of 10, and feeling rather good about where this is at. Not only do I hate this bar (as it's just hard), but floor pressing is also a great movement for me currently to keep my low back a bit happier. After the squats on Saturday, my mid back was fried from the SSB. I managed to work up to a rep PR, and it looks like in the coming weeks, I can still make some progress here. Always a good thing. If anything, my bench press is still holding strong and going well.
