Brian Carroll | Precontest | Week 8 | Squat + DL assistance


Huge thanks to Captain and Inzer Advance Designs for supporting my lifting!

BTW – Inzer has released those black knee and wrist wraps you’ve been asking for. You can get them HERE: Inzer Black Beauty Knee Wrap & Inzer Black Beauty Wrist Wrap

Starting to let up on the gas a bit in training. Even though 10 days out, there’s really no reason to push the assistance work heavy, but kept the volume up. Last thing I want to do is tweak or pull something at this stage in training when you wont get any stronger but can get injured or weaker.

Here’s what the day looked like and has for a bit.

Rope pull-downs: 3×10
Barbell rows: 3×6
DOH shrug: 3×5 with holds
Plate pinches: 3 sets
Hex holds: 3 sets
One leg GM: 3×6
Leg press: 3×6
Bulgarian SS: 3×6
Stir the pot: 50

Feeling pretty good and confident in my body and my game plan. I just need to execute 7-8 lifts perfectly. It’s nothing new. But I feel like I’ve attacked a few weak points and made some progress – namely my bench form and deadlift overall. I’m not quite as happy with my quad improvement but at least I don’t look like Paltos.

I have a great crew coming up to help me – the same crew that helped in SD back in April. I’m very appreciative of this. Ria is also doing her first meet this weekend along with Todd & Lisa G (her second equipped meet).

Looking forward to making weight and then getting ready to lift. This is the hard part, the easy part is lifting.
