I am currently 5 weeks out from the RPS US Open in San Diego, CA where I will be competing at 114lb raw with wraps.

Front/Side Raises with 5lb plate

Really focusing on the cues Paul Key gave me on my set up.  I was able to take the hand off without retracting my shoulders which is something I’ve been fighting to correct.

McGill pull ups

Stir the pots x 200

Diet Update:  I am still working with IFBB Pro Joel Thomas. I didn’t go too far off the reservation after the Arnold weight cut knowing I had the US Open right around the corner.  We reset after the Arnold and added in a 10pm fat meal of beef, kale, fish oil.  It’s fucking gross.  I stood over the kitchen sink every night gagging and hoping I didn’t vomit beef and kale into the sink.  I was pretty happy when Joel pulled the beef after a week and gave me a lean protein and 1tbsp of fish oil at 10pm.  I am currently sitting at 123lbs.
