    Not done

    Hello MD! It's been a while since I have been on here. A lot has happened in the past few months. I am currently preparing to make the move from Washington State down to Los Angeles. I will be offering my training services in the area beginning in May. I am now accepting new clients for offseason and contest prep nutrition and training consultation. This service can be done via email and phone. If you are interested please email me at [email protected] to receive more info and a price quote.
    I have been back to training following my car accident for a while now but I am not out of the woods yet. My collar bone and AC joint are not fully healed yet and I will be having my elbow scoped to remove a chunk of bone that was cleaved off during the accident. The bone fragment is floating in the joint and is causing my elbow to lock up from time to time. the recovery time from this surgery is only 7-10 days if all goes well. So I should be back in the gym in no time. The good news is that I have been able to work around these issues and have managed to maintain a decent amount of muscle. I have not yet decided if I will be competing this year so stay tuned for more updates. I'm not done yet!

    Hey Christian! Yes the recovery is going well. The concussion symptoms have subsided. My left shoulder is back to about 85%. The only exercises that seem to bother it were rear delt movements. I have taken a few weeks off from training and have been pretty relaxed on my diet. I will most likely start up my training again After the Thanksgiving Holiday next week.

    There is always a reason - there are no coincidences.

    Paula, this is the question of the year! I think my recent car accident answers that question very well. LOL!

    Currently two weeks out from the Sheru Classic. I am leaner than ever before but it appears that I have added a little more size, yet again. My strength is up on a lot of lifts even though I have dropped my carb intake down to 120g per day. My current weight is around 286.5 in the evening. I am slowly chipping away at the body fat. I am focusing on coming in with a more dry and grainy look than I had at the last 3 shows this year. I am seeing some striations that I have never see on myself before such as in the outer head of my triceps. They are starting to peek through but I'm not sure how much will show up on stage. I am very excited to see the final result on stage in India. This will probably be my final competition for this year so I am giving it everything I have left to hopefully end my rookie season in the IFBB with a bang. It will be such an honor to share the stage with guys like Phil, Kai, and Branch.

    Very cool! Few of us ever get the chance to see India, and I know he takes very good care of all the athletes. It's going to be an experience you'll always remember.
