I’m currently in meet prep for the RPS Lexen Spring Fling in Columbus, Ohio on May 9th, 2015. I will be competing in my first multi-ply meet, going bench only at 148 pounds.

Thursday was a decent day of speed work and some work up sets. My close grip bench has been making some great strides lately, and I think that is do to the extra tricep work I am hammering for the meet. It's good to see that start to carry over into my raw work, but right now I just need it to carry over to the gear.
I've got some time out of the shirt planned for Sunday, so getting back to some raw work is nice. My lovely girlfriend traveled over to train as well, and we all had a good time and then we had some spicy shredded Mexican chicken. I'm no Minx when it comes to cooking but this was super simple:
Layer your crock pot with 4-5 chicken breasts
Cover with taco seasoning (1 packet)
Cover with a can of salsa, and add in your hot sauce of choice (habenero for myself)
Set on low for 4-5 hours
About half way through, stir/mix things up a bit
After 4-5 hours, shred and let sit for another 30 minutes
High in protein, low in carbs, low in fat, and SUPER easy.
We had ours with some wraps (lower carb for the lady), and white rice
Let me know how you like it!
