The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    You did a great job, George. It was good competing with you again.

    Will we see you in July in Myrtle Beach?

    That bench looked like a warm up for you! Deadlift was pretty smooth too. The only lift that looked like you had to strain was your squat. Great job on the lifts. I see you adding some poundages to your total at your next meet!

Gonna work on my raw strength this cycle to build my raw base back up, and then get back into the gear when I start getting ready for the APA meet in August.)

    I won't know anything till Thursday, but the good thing is I don't have my hand all wrapped up anymore. I just keep a band-aid on it so it stays covered.
