05 Jan Brian Carroll | Arnold XPC Training | Week 2 Day 1 & 2 |
I’m about 9 weeks out from the Arnold & 14 out from the RPS US Open and just started precontest!
Also, as shown in the Featured pic – 10/20/life SECOND ADDITION in SOFT BACK physical copies will be ready VERY soon! Keep an eye out for this!
Since my last post, I’ve gotten on track. You can read about my come to Jesus here: Last log entry
Normal warm-up which you can read about HERE McGill Big 3
First day back in gear! Here’s how it went
Predator briefs/ Inzer Grippers
600×1 – 2 singles
700×1 – 2 singles
Added Leviathan Ultra – 805×1 (second to last warm-up)
Deads – 2″ block pull
One Leg GM: 3×10
Great session. It felt good to be back in the gear and actually have it feel comfortable. I really think this will be key for me being the second cycle in the Inzer gear. My groove felt good. I’m going to stay raw for a couple more weeks to make up for having to take a couple of weeks off from offseason.
I’ll be working higher on both the squat and deadlift next week before taking a deload. Prob 900 squat and 675 ish on dead.
Monday – Day 2
425×3 – 3bd
465×3 – 3bd
added SDP size 58/56
515×3 – 2 sets
570×3 – 1 set
610×3 – 1 set
* all to 3bd
Incline DB press: 3×10
Bench dip: 3×15
Triceps press-down: 3×15
Band fly: 3×15
This felt like crap even though it moved well. I have a LOT of work to do with my bench. I didn’t get a whole lot of good work in over the offseason but with Paul Key’s help, I’ll get to where I need it to be. Next week will be more of the same as we approach 80%+.
Long road ahead, but I’m up for it.
