03 Sep Brian Carroll | Fluff and buff and training full body|
I’m not quite sure what I’m going to do over the next few weeks but I’m going to get right back into some raw and moderately equipped training.
I got in a great training session Last night (wed) and got a full body session in. Felt great.
Here is what I did:
McGill big 3
Incline DB press: 3×12
Barbell row: 3×8
DB shrug: 3×10
One Leg GM: 3×10
Piston squat: 5×5
Leg press: 5×10
Band pull-apart: 3×10
Band shouder distraction: 3×10
Really good session.
I added in some leg press because my legs felt quite flat. Leg press, for me is a double edged sword. I’ve heard many strength guru’s say leg press is useless but when my squat was at it’s biggest (granted I was 290) I did LOTs of leg press. The only issue is unless I’m doing them perfect and only very small range of motion, they can potentially cause me issues with my back. NO GOOD. So, I’m going to proceed with caution and add them in for some leg fullness and volume. I LOVE how they make my legs feel, but I’ll play by ear or.. back.
I’m going to do some raw and brief squats tomorrow as I prep for a Saturday Seminar in Grand Rapids.
I’m going to get right back into training since I took 2 attempts saturday at the meet and that’s not even a training session. I’m feeling good, and not beat-up so no need to take time off and become a lardass again. Like after the Arnold.
