Yeah not bad....I started hitting every bodypart twice weekly so I reduced volume per day down a bit.

Looking much better.........my legs are still sore and my calves are fucked.  :D

I'm looking forward to the final posedown at next years Master Nationals.  Will it be the aesthetic beauty of Wes at welterweight sporting a freshly groomed pornstache or the 9th wonder of the world, a five tool athlete in multiple sports, the 2022 Superheavyweight winner and Covid survivor Bhank?
