07 Jul Brian Carroll Offseason Training Week 6, day 1 with Video
I’m currently training for the RPS Meet in FT Lauderdale, Oct 25. I’m in offseason training and will move into precontest at about 10 weeks out. My bodyweight is hovering around 270, and I will slowly move toward 260 over the next couple of months, where I want it to stay.
I’m going to compete at 242, as I feel better there, overall.

Continue to dial in/break in my overkill briefs and work up on squat to an RPE of about 7 for a double, then go up for a single. For the deadlift, I’m staying with singles to perfect form. RPE of 5-6 for a bit.

315×1 – 3 sets
405×1 – 3 sets
500×1 – 3 sets *last one was best, last 2 on video
One Leg GM:
Briefs are fitting better, but are really cutting into me. I guess I’m just a sissy. Other than that, they are molding to my body and I feel really good in them.
Squats feel nice and tight. I’m approaching depth, and should hit it soon. I’m also a bit weak, but other than being a touch off balance with the 805 (I had to ease it up, as I rocked on heels) I felt good and explosive.
Deads feel better than they have in years. Granted, the weight is super light, but it’s a good sign. Position feels good too.
Next Saturday is a deload for the squat and dead, then I’ll be cranking it back up the following week into the mid 8s to 9 for squat, and mid 5’s to 6 on dead. I’ll probably be adding in knee wraps soon as well.
