I am beyond disappointed to announce that I am withdrawing from the Pro Arnold Classic Meet. This was something I had been looking forward to for months now, unfortunately a hip injury I suffered in January is going to keep me out. I tried to train though it, got physical therapy, consulted with numerous doctors, had a cortisone shot, did rehab, and had Xrays and MRI’s done (fortunately no structural damage) but it simply did not get well enough in time for me to train for the meet appropriately. Even though I’m really upset and disappointed I’m going to use this to motivate me to train harder (and smarter) than I ever have for IPF Worlds in June. I will still be at the Arnold and look forward to meeting many of you there.
