05 Sep Brian Carroll Precontest – Week 3, day 3
I’m currently training for the RPS Meet in FT Lauderdale, Oct 25. I’m at about 7 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
Mcgill Big 3
I’m still a little heavy from last week’s bad eating fest. Not thrilled about it, but part of the game. I’m about 3lb heavier than I’d like. NO biggie.
1-arm KB swing: 3×10
pull-up: 3×8 – lat wasn’t happy
DOH shrug: 3×8
Hammer curl: 3×10
KB goblet squat: 3×10
Lat pull-down: 3×10
Really just an easy night of training. Been torn lately as to what I should do this weekend. I’m very much due for deload, but next week isn’t really feasible to get in a good session, considering where i’ll be.
I had a really bad session last week for a few reasons, but I think I need to get some decent work in tomorrow so I can go on vacation knowing that I have put in some work and that I’m on track.
It’s time to really nut-up and get my head on right. This will be 5 weeks in a row squatting in the suit, with 3 of them being bad LOL.
NO excuses, time to get in and put some work in.
