So..I have been thinking it over and uhh…Im done with figure. I was on the fence and feasibly could have enjoyed another four weeks of prep into the Mo State, but theres a chance I would get pretty burned out. I am ready to get back to powerlifting. Today I jumped back in the saddle. I have been talking a lot with other lifters lately and realize that a huuuuuge mistake I make time and time again is a lack of conservative lifting. The forever-newb in me wants to go heavy all the time, all the time. I know this is stupid and wreckless. Thus, I am resolving to build strength as opposed to constantly testing it.
And it went a little somethin’ like this…
