Brian Carroll | Offseason | Squat and deadlift | 600lbs like speed work

Thanks to and for supporting my lifting career!

Now that I have a few Saturday’s at home, I’m going to run a 3-week mini-cycle until I go out of town for Exos in PHX, early November. You can still register for the event at EXOS to see me and other great speakers!

Another thing: Since it’s pretty repetitive and boring, I won’t be logging my squat/DL assistance day nor fluff & buff for a bit until I change it up.

Week 2, day 1 – Squat/DL training
Last week was triples, so this week we did doubles. Check out how it went:

Normal warm-up every single training session, whether I feel like it or not.

Squat with SSB:
Top set of 2 – 475 – RPE 7

Deadlift from 4″ blocks
600×2 – RPE 7 – felt great

Belt pause squat: 3×8
Suit case carry: lots
Plank variations: lots

Excellent training session. We had a nice crowd and hopefully, this will be the norm for the next few weeks.

Everything is moving well and feels light. I’m in no rush. Like I’ve mentioned, next weekend (and all of week 3) I’m skipping the deload and going singles as I’m out of town the first weekend of Nov. When I return, I’ll map out my next mini-cycle of 3 weeks.
