20 Jan Brian Carroll | Arnold XPC Training | Week 4 Day 1 & 2|
Last work of the day – few FORM singles with 405. I don't do speed work Bc I don't need more speed. I need midrange work hence the block pulls!! I have to learn to griiiiinds. #1020life #precontest #arnold2016 #xpc #Inzer #inzeradvancedesigns #teamPRS #teamsamson #junsbarbershop #PowerRackStrength #tentwentylife #deadlift #captainjacked #fusionDLer

Since my post a few weeks ago, 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
The goal on this squat/DL day for squat was to work up to a little less than a last warmup straight weight and then a band set with less than an opener. For deads, continue working off the blocks belt-less.
735×1 – added Gripper Knee wraps
825×1 – added LUP and wraps
935×1 – same
1025 – same
Dead – 4″ block pull
725×2 – this one got me a little goofy
405×1 – 3 singles
Good session but it was time for a deload. I got done what I needed to. HUGE thank you to Keith, Adam and Jason K for their helping dialing me in last weekend! You have to have great people in your corner to do well, and I have just that.
Next squat/DL session will be a very light one and then it’s time for the home stretch. I’ll be pulling from the floor from here on out too and conventional.
Monday – bench day
It was time for some downtime and I took it on Monday…..
Floor press: 225×3 – 5 sets
Incline DB press: 5×10
Bench dip: 4×15
Cable press-down: 3×15
Band fly: 3×12
DONE. Felt good to get a pump and unload the body a little bit. Was much needed! I will be doing all the right thing this week to heal up!
Big weeks are coming, I have to be ready!
