New Year, New Look, New Posts...

2009 is here.

I decided to change the look of the blog and start posting again as I'm in the mood to write again.

As I look back at 2008, I realize I haven't posted in 4+ months. In fact, some of my friends have taken me off their links. Rightly so.

Fortunately, not much was happening training-wise and I had some major training ADD. I never seemed to recover from that hip injury back in April while training for the NC State Championships.

This year, my major goals are, well, not that important.

I am bound and determined to get back on the platform and compete again. Perhaps for the NC State Championships in May. I have about 30lbs to gain as I am now a soft, weak, 210lbs. I talked to Dave Whitley, SrRKC, the other day, and we're reconnecting on our goal from 2 years ago--meet at 240lbs.

I will get up and running on the platform again this week. I will be digging out some workouts from Alfonso, my former coach, and modifying them to suit my current condition, with of course, the goal to gain a large amount of muscle in a short amount of time. Fortunately, I haven't been training hard--"softening up" as Pavel calls it--so packing on some appreciable muscle mass should be relatively easy.

This will be an interesting start to the New Year.

Glad to see you blogging again especially now that I have been training Oly lifts for the last three months .. incredibly humbling to say the least.

Thanks, Franz. Blessing right back at you and your family.
