30 Oct Brian Carroll | 10/20/Life Precontest | Week 8 day 2 Bench press | 3 weeks out from the WPO
Check out our shop’s brand new facelift along with some new swag! HERE
I officially started my WPO prep 9.1.18, and the goal was to start getting my body used to the Inzer gear, load, and pressure that will be coming over the next ten weeks.
We are now less than two weeks out from November 11.
Gear used during this cycle and for the meet:
- All Inzer Advance Designs top to bottom
- LUP Size 2xl, Predator brief Size 38 and 4×4 Knee wraps
- SDP Black Size 56 and 56/54 with 4×4 Wrist wraps
- Fusion DLer with Velcro & Grid, size 38
- Red/White/Blue Inzer Forever Belt Single Prong
I’m now sitting here writing this as training is pretty much done.
I feel like I’ve done a training cycle let’s put it that way.

For those following along, for this cycle, I’m working off my goal percentages and staying pretty much week to a week straight out of the 10/20/Life book with the template progressions, every 3-week deloads, etc. but one significant change would be multiple single-sets vs. rep-sets of triples and doubles.
Bench felt good. I used one of my back-up shirts which fits a little loose for this day. I don’t have the pop my meet shirt provides, but it’s a great fit. I also have another back-up which is a little tighter and is actually between my go-to shirt and this back-up. I think I’m going to promote that one to a back-up shirt.
Training, except for some light fluff and buff stuff is done. As I write this, I have about 12 more days to heal up and make a couple of adjustments to my diet and sleep.
I traveled this weekend, so I’m a little bit tired even after being home for over a day. It was so worth it because SWIS was incredible. Much more to come on this. Plus, I have a lot of videos of my lifts to load up.
Looking forward to the meet.
