It's been awhile since my last article update but I've been drowned with school work lately. It's been exactly one month since SNBF Nationals and things are going fairly well. My weight is back up to the usual 195 lbs or so and my strength has increased tremendously. I am having a little difficulty regaining 100% of my strength back however. I attribute this to one main factor: the idea that everyone needs at least an entire week off from training. I can't recall the last time I took a whole week off from training altogether. This is more difficult than it seems b/c I love training so much. If I could live in a gym, I would. You're probably wondering what I'm doing to put back on my size so I will keep not keep you waiting any longer.

So take a look at it and see what you need to work on the most. In my next article, I will share with you some of the best and worst supplements I have tried in my 2 1/2 years of supplementation. Until then train hard, train smart, train Natural!
