Brian Carroll Precontest training: Week 2, day 2

DSC_0139

I’m currently training for the RPS Meet in FT Lauderdale, Oct 25. I’m at about 10 weeks out. My bodyweight is hovering around 264 in the AM, and I will slowly move toward 260 over the next couple of months, where I want it to stay.

NOTE: Team Samson will also be doing a Seminar the following day, stay tuned for details.

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

Warm-up:
Mcgill Big 3
Push-ups
Band fly

As I hit on the other day with my last entry, I didn’t get much done on Saturday with the bench press, so I wanted to jump back in the shirt and work on breaking in my new ‘red’ overkill shirt.

This shirt is beyond tiny, but I think will work once a few more sessions happen in it.

Here is what I did:

Bench:
shirt ON
455×3 – 5bd
550×3 – 4bd
605×3 – 4bd
655×2 – 4bd
675×1 – 4bd

I basically had a super close grip (18″) until the last couple sets and I got the ring finger out, barely!

this was NOT a fun session, but necessary.

I like a nice challenge. [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”]
