Day 23: September 7, 2016
Notes From Matt
The plan for the next 6 days or so is to allow Dallas to naturally keep coming down in weight and making minor adjustments to the diet daily as needed. I am trying to avoid massive drops as well as spikes in weight via high refeeds and just keep his body in a place where everything is as consistent as possible. We are doing posing in the morning and posing following training after his post training meal digests. This allows me two opportunities
Be sure to following along today on IG and Snapchat as we document the training day!
