Speedy Benching, Boards, and A Side of Fluff (w/VIDEO)

I’m currently in meet prep for the 2015 XPC Finals at the Arnold Sports Festival during the weekend of March 6-8th. I will be competing on Friday, March 6th, 2015 at 132 pounds, raw with knee wraps.

More speed work, board work, and accessory for the bench. Another great day of work, and weight were feeling great and light. That's always a good thing considering meet day is closing in, and fast. Still keeping volume on this day a bit high for about another week. I made some smart decisions with exercise selection so I'd come in feeling good for the weekend. Big pulling and benching over the weekend, and then it's about time to ride the wave into the meet.
