OK, I'm still alive and kicking. Going to be starting a raw block program in a few weeks. Just laying off and doing gpp/conditioning work to get ready for the volume. Been on the treadmill, walking, foam rolling, and doing some dumbell complexes.
I have been sticking to my backloading plan for nutrition. I have been a little easy on myself in a few ways. I have taken a few scoops of protein out of my day and have been lenient in my evening meals. Not going wild, but just giving myself a little break before I get serious. I took about 4-5 lbs of bloat off. I was 289 this morning. I'd like to be around 280 by January and then slowly strip off the last 5 lbs by the end of March for my meet.
