Dallas Journey to the Olympia – Day 16

Road to mr olympia day16

Day: 16 August 31, 2016

Notes From Matt

Yesterday was a planned off day, very much needed and we got a good result from it yesterday sleep improved and weight increased a bit from not having as much energy expenditure. At this point we are taking things a few hours to a day at a time so for now we don’t plan on taking more off days but will if needed. 

Be sure to be following along today on IG and Snapchat as we document the training day!
