After coming off a top 10 all-time multiply bench press performance, I'm now taking a few weeks to get back into some light hypertrophy training. My focus right now is to keep my body healthy and feeling good, while laying a solid foundation to start a new off season full power training cycle by the end of August.

Tuesday evening I got in a long winded upper body day. It was quite a bit of volume as I'm beginning to slowly ramp things up before getting ready for some good training starting on Saturday. I'm still trying to use some interesting movements and sequences to keep things fresh and fun, but also get some solid work in until I start training hard again. And for the first time in about a year my body feels really good. Let's just keep that rolling.
