11 May Brian Carroll Offseason: Week 7, day 1 Squat/DL
I just finished competing at the XPC Arnold Finals 3/7/15 where I totaled 2610@242 and won the overall. I did not achieve ALL of my goals but I’m still happy with the results, not content.
I am registered to compete in August at the RPS Meet in NJ, but first guest lifting at the RPS Ft. Myers meet!
The plan for summer is to take my heavy weeks while home, and working raw and in briefs while gone on the road. Too many distractions while traveling to ensure that I’ll be on point and have all I need to go over 1k on the squat.
See all these 10/20/Life t-shirts and hoodies in picture above! You can order them HERE
NEXT SEMINAR UP: GRAND RAPIDS MICHIGAN. MAY 16!
This spring, summer, AND fall, Team PRS will be covering a good bit of the United States doing SEMINARS AND CLINICS so make sure to check our schedule to see if I’ll be near you! If you are interested in having our team come to you, contact me here: email@example.com.
I have that deadlift meet coming up super fast at the end of this month, so I’m prepping for that best I can.
I will be pulling both sumo and conventional with the goal of pulling a PR. I wont be cutting for this meet but will come in around 265 at the most.
It’s not secret that I will probably not be 100% strength for the end of the month, but I’m going to try to turn it on as best as possible.
Here is Saturday’s session:
Mcgill big 3
Deads: sumo and conventional back to back
… lots of form work and dialing in technique
Lot’s of McGill big 3
Everything felt pretty good. I’m going to up the volume a bit this coming week (2 weeks out) and work into the low 700’s for back to back reps. I’ll have to push this week harder than I would like to but my time is limited. I’ll make the most of the time that I have.
I’m very thankful that I can pull both sumo and conventional 100% pain free. I had my doubts that this would ever happen again!
