Default Mr Olympia here I come

In all my busyness this week i forgot to mention that i was invited to compete at the Mr. Olympia Bench invitational for the second year in a row, which is real exciting! Last year was a blast to get around some of the best benchers in the country with a really cool atmosphere to compete. I can't wait, it is Sept 17th about 9 weeks away.

Right now i had been gearing up for an August 20th meet which i will still do as a tune up for the Olympia and my goal is an american Submaster (age 35-39) record and top 20 all time 242 bench press! Looks like 2 really fun meets coming up shortly!

As a recap last year's Olympia was just a heavyweight class 275+ I was the lightest at 265lbs competing with 308's and Superheavyweights and out of 7 guys i came in 4th with a 639 lbs bench. This year is a little different with guys in each wt class and I will be going down to 242, so it will be interesting. This tune up meet will give me some confidence and prepare me for the bright lights of Vegas!

Thanks for any and all support.

Time to go to work!
