Day 21: September 5, 2016
Notes From Matt
Dallas and I had a call this morning mapping out training from now through his final workouts. It’s that time to be thinking about all of the “finals” of prep. He will be training chest today, arms tomorrow and then legs on Sunday together.
Cardio is still on a as needed basis right now and will continue in this manner through the olympia. Its a fine line at this point of tissue retention and fat loss and we are trying to walk it daily. Its not so much his mental aspect that I am concerned with as Dallas will always due what is needed but he has a lot of new tissue on his lower half that our goal is go bring into the show not diet off prior to.
Be sure to following along today on IG and Snapchat as we document the training day!
