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.

Well I'm back to getting in some training, albeit some rather light hypertrophy work, and nothing more. I'm really just trying to get back into the swing of things, and start building up some GPP. I still got a really good pump and cranked this session out super fast. I'll be honest that my training right now as no real sense of direction except to not squat, bench press, or deadlift for a few weeks. Everything else is pretty much fair game. Should make for some interesting training sessions for the next 2-3 weeks.
