The Road to 2016 Nationals Part 3

Test day went well. This is where my coach and I hit some heavy singles that are fast and sharp without  technique breakdown, so we can estimate start weights for the upcoming competition.
Right now, speed, strength, technique and confidence are firing on all cylinders. I am confident for some new Personal Records around the corner. Looking forward to competing at my 6th National Championships.

Here are some recent meals:
Grass fed beef is a staple in my diet.

Rabbit stew.

A typical morning, bulletproof coffee and grass fed steak.

Wild Sockeye, greens, quinoa. I don't like quinoa though.

Some grouse from a previous hunting trip, with rice and butter.
