16 Jul Brian Carroll | Precontest Week 4, day 3 | Squat/DL assistance
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.

Made it through a tough 3-4 weeks of training and I’m very relieved. I feel a bit tired and at the same not too beat up right now, just need some rest, which is coming up.
I wanted to make sure nothing was too taxing yesterday so I kept it very very light…
McGill Big 3
DB shrug: 3×10
Band fly: 3×12
Band skull: 3×12
Hammer curl: 3×12
Band Squat/hip mobility: 3×10
Lots of McGill big 3 and foam rolling my lateral quad/ITB.
I don’t plan on doing much of anything heavy over the next week. I’ll do my core work, some push-ups, chins, one leg DL and maybe some BW squats and that’s it while I’m on vacation.
Some much needed time away but i’m going to come back swinging hard once I’m rested!
Big training sessions on the horizon with my best people over the next month. Really 2 heavy sessions left and one opener week is all!
A few notes:
I’ve been getting massage and chiro work every week
I’ve been making sure to get plenty of sleep
and I’m still walking a mile a day, 6 days a week or so.
This is all paying off as I’ll be making the cut from a high 250’s vs a low 260’s and as some of you know, it makes a HUGE difference. Just a few lbs….
I’ll check back in soon!
