While I might not still be back to 100%, I'm healthy enough to compete bench only. Therefore, I am currently in meet prep, where I will compete at the APF/AAPF Summer Bash on July 29th, 2017. I'll be competing the 132-lb. weight class, multi-ply, where I look to bench press 500+ pounds, yet still mending my low back issues.

Week ten was a rather productive week. I managed to get in my final heavy raw bench work, get some new dynamic effort waves going, and round out some good accessory work. One more real week of training is left, then we really begin to pull the reigns back to hit the platform strong.

The highlights from this training video:

  • Reverse Average Band Bench Press PR - 400x1
  • New Dynamic Effort Waves
  • I talk about my plans post-meet
  • Close Grip Bench Press vs Chains PR - 215x10
