11-ish weeks until the Arnold, which is March 7, 2015.

I’m finishing week 4 of offseason work this week.

Update: BW has hit a low of 257.5 currently and is floating between 257-260

I’m making Saturday a day to hit all 3 big movements – squat/bench/deadlift to ensure my back continues to have the conditioning necessary to improve. Also, I REALLY LIKE doing all 3 on one day, then just assistance work on the other 2 days. Works well, especially raw.

I’ll be finishing up my offseason work this coming week and then move my schedule around to a more traditional split.

Normal warm-up: Always McGill big 3
Band fly
Band press-down

Training
Mcgill chin: 25 mixed variety
Barbell Rack row: 3×5 – top set of 365
1-arm KB swing: 3×12
Piston squat: 3×5 – 225
Hammer curl: 3×12
1-leg GM: 3×12
Band fly: 3×12
DOH barbell shrug: 3×10 – snatch grip

Here’s a video of the rack rows from last night!

Great session again. Body weight is down, body is feeling great! I’m going to work up to the following on my last raw day before I start precontest:

RPE of 8 and work doubles:
725ish
455ish
625ish

I’m looking forward to pushing toward the Arnold. It will be March before we know it!

I will be out of town next weekend for xmas, but I’ll be starting my cycle officially for the Arnold Jan 3ish. I’m in solid shape so 7-8 weeks will be just right.

I’m more motivated than ever for this meet! Hope to see you there!

Brian Carroll

Brian is a world-class powerlifter with over two decades of elite and pro-level powerlifting under his belt. Coming back from a devastating back injury in 2012 that broke multiple bones and that most experts said he would never recover from, he has returned to the pinnacle of world-class lifting (while 100% pain and symptom-free) and is now dedicated to helping others avoid the same mistakes that he made in the past through private and group coaching in Jacksonville, FL. Brian’s impressive recovery has given him the opportunity to teach and deliver talks to physical therapists, chiropractors, medical doctors, professional strength & conditioning coaches and experts from all facets of sport, on how to avoid injury, while building anti-fragile strength and resilience in athletes.
