24 Jun Brian Carroll 6/18/2014 Training Log
10/20/Life week 3, day 3; Squat and DL
Mcgill big 3
Band Goblet squat
Band One Leg GM
Goal for the day:
This would be the second session with Scott and squats and pulls were on the agenda. Second week back squatting and pulling, so to work up to a top set of 3 with room to spare on the squat, and singles on the deadlift. I’m keeping the reps low on the squat and especially on the DL to keep form as tight as possible.
605×3 – video
Dead (double overhand to keep my ego in check)
315 – 3 singles
405 – 3 singles
500 – 2 singles
Mcgill big 3….
I’ll write on this more soon but it was an awesome time training with Scott and getting to know him a bit. We have a crap load of content that I’ll be posting up over the next few weeks of both training and roundtable type discussions.
Squat doesn’t feel as good as the dead does at this point, but for me the squat takes the most time to get the ‘groove’ back. I’m not concerned.
Dead feels very good. I like to pull DOH(double overhand)to work my grip especially when I’m going light, it makes me STAY light. Great grip tester and builder. Try a 500lb DOH dead and see if you can do it. I would say most cannot. I have seen JL Holdsworth basically do a 585 like this, but sorda lost it at the top.
I’ll be working raw for the next couple of weeks and will be getting in gear soon and will start the offseason break-in process as I look for a meet in the fall.
