I ventured over to RBC to help out and did numerous sets of pull aparts and face pulls, then ate with the guys since Adam was nice enough to grill for everyone. Good day today and hit some pretty good numbers. I swear the last set felt like at least 750.

Good day today but should have been better.

Had to improvise as we only had 3 mini bands… so we pulled out the purples.

My shirt is going on way to easy. When you can pull it on and have it set within a minute ya know it’s loose. When I first got it it took a while to get it on and the sleeves were tight. Not now…Definitely going to have to do something about this for the meet. I’ll send mine to Ginny if Monte has one I can borrow so that I can keep doing shirt work for the next few weeks. If not I guess I’ll have to do raw work while waiting for the shirt to come back, or not send it at all and deal with it.

No excuses. Just have to get strong(er).

haha, on the 4th rep of the 420 I snagged my fingernail on the canvas. Guess which one ripped? Not the canvas! ow! hahaha pussitis!

Got a response from Ginny. Will be sending the shirt this week. For the 75 bucks for alterations + cost of the shirt I could have gotten a Pro Bash. Oh well, Monte said he had a shirt I could borrow for a few weeks. We’ll see that goes and will hopefully get strong(er) in the meantime.

Good day today.
