Just my 2 cents, keep up the solid work.
Thanks. I was previously doing olympic lifts but my goal these two months to to gain ~10lbs of muscle and making good progress so far. I want to be able to cut ~10lbs of water weight pre-fight instead of just fighting at my natural 170. I get a lot of my explosive training and conditioning from my conditioning coach 1-2 times a week currently. After this 2 month cycle I will be going back to explosive olympic lifts and step back away from power lifting and mass building.
