Day 29: September 13, 2016

Notes From Matt

Yesterday was our last day in boca. We spent the morning getting haircuts, training and packing for our early evening flight to vegas. The biggest keys to a successful travel day for a bodybuilding event is to arrive early, wear tight fighting clothes or compression type apparel under your clothes and continue to keep water going through the flight. These will help minimize stress and keep water flushing which is a concern this close to a show. 

We trained shoulders at Project Flex yesterday, the entire workout was filmed so be sure to check that out on redcon1.com

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