Overhead Strict Press PR, Paused Bench Press & Bear Rugs
I am currently training to add some muscle mass and increase my strength during an off-season phase. My next competitive plans are undetermined at this time, but if my schedule allows I'll be doing NAS Strongman Nationals in October. I'm also adjusting to raising a new baby boy while still working, training and living life.
I had a great relaxing weekend with the wife and little man. I finally made some time to get some fishing in at the pond behind our new house, grilled out all three nights and had a ton of fun as usual.
Hanging on the bear rug with little man.
Last night was my night to get up and feed little man. Usually I don't have any trouble going back to sleep, but he woke up to feed at 2am. I fed him his bottle and got back in bed by 2:30am. Apparently he's in this stage where he's making a ton of noises in his sleep. I didn't sleep from 2am until around 4am when I remembered I had some ear plugs with my pistol case. So I got up, put some ear plugs in and got to sleep until around 5:30am. Regardless I had to pull it together to train today. So about 400mgs of caffeine later I was ready.
