Morning workout went by pretty easily. Good push but not especially difficult. Felt fine after the workout.

Afternoon workout I felt a little tired going into - caught a nap beforehand. Really motivated for this competition, I don't want to stop!

I was actually pretty surprised by how strong I was. I thought I'd be much weaker since introducing god awful amounts of conditioning but not so much. Go figure... My best bench is 330 and best chinup strict is probably what I just hit today.

The chipper I didn't push as hard as I could have, didn't have a ton of fire in me. Felt pretty good immediately after.

Weighed in at 175lbs today. Haven't been this light in years. Glad my strength is keeping with me!
