20 Oct Brian Carroll Precontest – last real training session
I’m currently training for the RPS Meet in FT Lauderdale, Oct 25. I’m at about 2 weeks out.
Weight has stabilized between 264-267 without too much effort. Once I cut out the crap at night, I should drop down to 260 pretty easily, but I dont want to do that now because I feel good, and my gear fits well at this weight.
I’m going to compete at 242, as I feel better there, overall.
For the full story of why I decided to go 242, read this: A Look in the Mirror, Part 1
Mcgill Big 3
Training from last Wed
Pretty much coasted on this one, but still go the work done. Conditioning is very good right now, but this probably greatly due to the loss of BF and being healthier overall.
Mcgill chins: 20 singles
Barbell rack row: 3×6
BB piston squat: 3×8
One arm KB swing: 3×15
Hammer curl: 3×15
Easy day, but finished what I needed. If it’s not done or ready by now, it wont be ready so thats why I say have an offseason and do what you need to do during your precontest. The last 3 weeks you’re basically just working with what you’ve built, not really building or gaining anything other than confidence.
In another post, i’m going to outline my cut and what I’m looking to do over the next few day and talk about openers and the meet etc.
look for this soon! [share title=”Share this Article” facebook=”true” twitter=”true” google_plus=”true” linkedin=”true” pinterest=”true” reddit=”true” email=”true”][author title=”About the Author”]
