This is my 'Merica Tank Top.  You can also see my Strong(er) Lever belt, SBD Elbow Sleeves, and my Icon Ag and Turf hat.

I love Overhead Press day! The only thing I don't like is that the program keeps adding more and more sets and it takes me so much longer to get through a workout.  I am looking forward to OHPing more and more weight.  I would love to be able to push press 315 within the next year.

Daily "Selfie":

Kicking Mass & Taking Names Cut-off.  This was our summer volleyball shirt from last year.  Our team is made up of parishioners from our Catholic church, hence the Kicking "Mass" part. Red, High Top, Converse shoes I've had since before high school.

Back felt much better.  I did a 10 min back stretching video before the workout and it really helped.  I might work that in a few times a week now.  Bench press is still feeling really easy while squats are getting harder.  I am finished with Week 1 now and I feel that my muscles have adapted (very slightly) to the new volume and rep scheme.  Hopefully that will get better and better.

Here is a link to the video of my training on my YouTube channel:

Daily “Selfie” – I took this “selfie” when I got home due to the fact that I trained at school.  This is one of my ‘Merica shirts.  Every 4th of July I try to buy a new shirt that represents my love and patriotism for my country and for those that defend her.2015-12-12-07.22.07.jpg.jpeg
