Log Press w/VID and Fat Loss Update w/PIC

I am currently training for The 2014 Arnold Amateur Strongman Fitness World Championships. This will be held at The Arnold Sports Festival Feb. 28th through March 2nd in Columbus, Ohio. I’ll be competing in the Lightweight 185# division.

Over the Holiday's I allowed myself to go off the plan for two meals. I didn't go crazy and kept things in check for the most part. I think I kept the damage control to a minimum, of course once I lost all the water weight I gained. I weighing 203 this morning. Hoping to see it back down to 201 by the end of the week, or even lower. From the progress pics I'm still getting leaner, so that's a good thing.

Training went good today. My pec is feeling much better. I have pulled bench press out on and programed in incline bench instead. I don't want to risk straining the pec again this close to a contest and incline has always seemed to be more pec friendly for me. Also - there is no bench pressing in strongman so it's supplemental work anyways. I went with a close grip and played it safe for today.
