I’m starting my offseason work this week. I’ve had enough time off now. I’m ready to get back to it.
I plan on bringing my bodyweight down to the 260 range vs 265 – 268 so I can make the cut as simple as possible. I’ll be working on dropping the weight over the next little bit.
We bought a new Mono and bench last weekend, so it was time to unload the them into the gym. Huge pain, but well worth it. This was basically my warm-up!
Thanks to EFS for the nice hook-up on their equipment from the WPC worlds. Great looking stuff for sure, great quality.

Good and fast session. I’ll be turning things up over the next few weeks and I feel the need. Chins felt GREAT — Good indicator. Fast and crisp.
Time to clean up the diet and not eat 3 boxes of cookies per lb of bw per day. haha.
Looking forward to getting under the bar again.
