I would love to hear any feedback on my training log. Any thoughts, questions, or constructive criticism is welcome. I want to learn, get better, rid my self of what's useless and focus on the things that will get me stronger and faster than I've ever been.

Been on the Warrior Diet for the past week and it seems to work well for me. I do it out of convenience and for the fact that it will help me drop some weight as id look to go down a bit from my 170-175 range being Im only 5'6"
