On the Cusp

I reached the second marker in my journey towards getting back in performance shape for October: 5% body fat.  When I started my weight-training regimin last week I expereinced a sudden gain of about 1 kg.  I attributed it to the onset of muscular hypertrophy-induced water retention.   

I will fast on Saturday to obtain a benchmark minimum bodyweight; I will need to re-evaluate this minimum on a month-by-month basis to see if I would benefit from raising it. 

After shedding 6kg my handstand routine has never been easier.  It is an interesting problem: how to optimize the strength-weight ratio for the specific demands of handbalancing?
