16 Mar Brian Carroll | Offseason training | Week 10, back in Inzer gear
Starting this week, week 10, we will be working in gear some.
Briefs and wraps for the squat, so straight bar. Shirt off boards for bench and some raw pressing with the football bar, and wagon wheels/ suit straps down for the deadlift here and there. We will still have plenty of raw work but will be getting in gear for our first or second lift of the day.
Here is what I did:
805×3 RPE 7
** all done in Preds size 46, 2ply with grid.
No assistance – went to eat sushi.
I didn’t do assistance because I haven’t felt great since coming back from C-bus last week. But the weight felt fine. Reps are hard, but I enjoy them lately. A lot different than I’ve used in the previous 5-7 years. Lots of changes, but enjoying it. Still was gassed out.
Eight hundred felt good, though I noticed that compared to last week, I brought my stance BACK in a hair, so I need to move it back out this coming weekend. I need to sit back more and open up better. A few things to work on for sure.
I felt very discombobulated during this session. I didn’t sleep very well on Friday night – I was up drinking cough-syrup all night – yes, the right kind. So I was pretty crunk and confused Saturday am and was feeling crazy. I remember getting mad a few times at Dave and Thomas on the other rack because somehow we finished squatting with four people going up to 800lbs at the same time they did with 2 going 425. Plus, I was belligerent, but it made for a fun day for all.
My goals for the squat is to go over 1100 in briefs, so we will see if I can get there. I’d like to do 1000 for a trip, too.
Still no meet picked out as of yet. Again, a few of us are looking at Bert and Mindy’s in Knoxville, Tn 10.3.20.
Looking forward to putting on the bench shirt tonight and working on my tucked-set-up for bench.
