Brian Carroll | Precontest Week 4, day 1 | Squat/DL

I’m after the total record at 242 of 2695, and squat record of 1140. My best total ever is 2730, and best squat ever is 1185 – my best individual lifts combined are low to mid 2800’s at 275. My best total at 242 is 2610 and I will be adding to that very soon.

My next meet is RPS Meet August 29, in Atlantic City, NJ. I’ll be lifting at 242.

Week 4 started on Saturday with squat. The goal of taking a last warm-up, an opener and a second with a band in the new gear.

Here is how the day went:

Normal warmup:
BW squat
KB swing
McGill Big 3

Added brief and double gripper wraps
955×1 – last warm-up
1025×1 – opener
1075×1 RB – secondish

few sets up to 655 for some reps.

It was ugly as I tried to pull in my squat gear as is.. Too much!! Shut it down and got it out of my head this day.

Birddogs, One Leg GMs etc… DONE

Happy with the session. The suit is breaking in nicely and I’m a big fan of it. I’m a little beat up, hence the bad unracks and shaking but I really love the groove of the suit and the ability to adjust it so easily.

Squat depth is getting better. Second time in the suit, so I’m not terribly far off. Front the front, it looks much higher than the side. Go figure.

Deads were a wash. Moving forward, I wont be trying to pull in the same squat combo I squat in. Too much.

One more heavy day (today) — big bench day… Then it’s deload time for about 12 days, thank Jeebus. I will probably handle some 700’s to 800 and get some more reps in and finish breaking in my SDP.

Thanks for all of the support.

If you are in the Charleston, SC area… YOU NEED to come to our seminar at Low Country Strength!!
