17 Jan Brian Carroll | 10/20/Life Week 2 day 1 | Floor press + bench with video
I’m back from a fantastic vacation in NC. I ate some really great food, had a full week completely checked out from work and got to spend quality time with my Wife Ria and the boys.
Anyway, back in the swing of things. Started this offseason mini-cycle off with 3’s, and will taper down to 2’s and 1’s. Check it out:
a. Band flye
b. McGill big 3
c. DB press
d. Empty bar
Floor press: RPE 6 (coming back from strained pec so being easy)
315x2x3 – felt good
Raw Bench with SDP bench shirt: RPE 7
415×2 – 5bd
465×2 – 5bd
505×2 – 4bd
555×1 – 3bd
595×1 – 2bd
645×1 – 1bd
Incline DB press: 4×10
Triceps press-down: 4×10
Extra left arm work: 10×10
This session went quite long as I had Jason, Stan and Clint playing musical break my other shirt in. Thanks guys.
I’m currently working in my 58 SDP, working on form, touch technique, and shirt placement. I’m seeing great improvement, confidence and comfort in the shirt. The bar was coming in good the entire training session, even with it cranked down.
As you can see from my thumbnail pic, the shirt is really pulled down. I’ll give some pros and cons on this in the coming weeks, so look for an article on this plus my offseason plans.
The rest of the training session was par for the course. My intent was to wear my tighter shirt (the one they are breaking in) at the end of the session but we ran out of time. I am deloading this coming week but will pick back up the following as I ramp back up with a mini-cycle.
More to come!
