OPA Provincials 2018: 3 Weeks Out

Still on the volume train! I’m looking forward to tapering down this upcoming week and getting my weight under control. I’ve had issues with fluctuations the last couple of weeks due to hormone related issues and it’s beyond frustrating. I’m hoping I’ll be able to sort everything out and I’ll be good to compete at 72kg, if not it’s not the end of the world but I’m going to try my damn hardest to get down there. On a brighter note I managed to hit some bigger volume PR’s and I’m pretty excited about them. Regardless of whether I make it down to 72kg or not I’m looking forward to competing again.

Here’s what I’ve done for the last few weeks:
