Training continues to progress, although I admit freely its significantly easier to do the training that it is to remain disciplined on the food front.
Based on feedback and input from Master Tyler, I am now adding additional conditioning activities, but with a difference. Think less barbell squats with weights, and more cudgel with buckets hanging from the ends with plate weights in them topped off with water. I will let Tyler elaborate in his comments but this is a killer! The idea is not to let the water spill which ensures you keep good form.
