Training is rolling along right now! This was week 2 in the SDP and time to start to push the numbers a little bit. I have sent the shirt off for a few small alterations in the arms, but I really feel like the chest plate fits perfect. The groove of the shirt is very easy, and really something that I didnt have to even adjust to.
