Lower Body 8/6/12

Training has been going very well.  Missed a few updates, on the upper body side of things I have been learning how to bench with out a hard arch (for the sake of my low back) because I am doing all raw work now, I think will be stronger in the long run.   The HRV app continue to amaze me,  it is so cool to see how life in general effect my body.  It is such an awesome accountability tool for me.
