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 seven was one of the best training weeks I've had in a long time. And perfect timing as we begin to dial everything in for the meet in a few short weeks.

The highlights from this training video:

  • SSB Squat Progress at Elitefts UGSS with my awesome teammates
  • Floor Press vs 2 Chains Per Side PR - 255x3
  • Cambered Bar Speed Squats actually looking fast
  • Close Grip Bench Press vs Doubled Mini Bands PR - 190x10
