I like what's happening with my body.

My body seems to be responding to the new training stimulus of ring hold progressions. I feel more cohesive, like my body flows, rather than being a collection of parts. I am getting better at staying tight on all exercises.

I think I am getting some hypertrophy of the external obliques between the abs and serratus. I say that because they are popping out more than I thought they'd be at this level of leanness. The external obliques can be really impressive if developed and lean. I hope this continues.

I wouldn't mind having oblique's like Jim Cordova's:
