Last week I continued to build upon things slowly - I'm resisting the urge to adjust any training maxes, or push things to hard/heavy too fast. Right now I'm leaving sessions not feeling destroyed for the first time in months; and I've always made the best strength progress when I keep it that way. I'm also being very strict to keeping 2 or so reps in the tank on any AMRAP top sets. My bodyweight is sitting steady at 203lbs right now, and the gameplan is to do a meet at 198 sometime over late fall/winter..
