Training this week was excellent and is definitely going in the direction. More big things to come. Better BELIEVE it baby!
It was a deload week (no deadlifts or bench press) but I still managed to have some fun and hit some new bests. It’s getting cold outside so the alapacas have been coming in to hang out during training some times. Definitely the perfect storm for optimal training.

Look forward to some big things!I’m still doing small sessions throughout the week working on skills and weaknesses. My eating has been on point too.
