Here's a little update. I'm just about 8 weeks out from Nationals and dropping alot of weight now. I weighed 129.6 this morning!
Still training hard although not heavy... hitting the big three at least once a week, if not twice, doing alot of high volume. Basically incorporating alot of sheiko stuff into my contest prep training along with some ancillaries and alot of strength/conditioning and core work.
I'm going to a Functional Training Seminar this weekend that should be pretty interesting.
Back is recovered and holding up. No need to go heavy right now.
Feeling pretty good for 8 weeks out... haven't hit the wall yet. And I know that when I come back to the PL training, I will be better and stronger than ever!
