Sadly, a few months ago Anton managed to seriously injure his back, resulting in 2 herniated discs. So, he has been out of the gym for 2 months which is a very long time which has set back his physique quite a bit. However, he is very optimistic and slowly starting to train again, using very light weights. If he manages to get in shape by April he's planning to compete again on the stage by May, just in time for the New York Pro! Until then he's been going through a very long moving process, found a great apartment and gotten settled, so there are plenty of things to keep him happy.
Anton appreciates all of his fan's emails and their support, so please guys send him your support!
