01 Jul Brian Carroll Training log Week 5, day 1 Bench with Video
I wanted to work up to a top set of 5 on Floor press, and then work on some lockout stuff with some volume. Still getting back on the horse, and feeling better every week.
Moved to sets of 3. Shoulder was feeling off
365×3 – shoulder feeling dry
Close grip with SS pad
Other than my shoulder not being happy with my floor pressing, it was a productive day. I THINK it could be the weight loss + too much floor pressing lately + not having a squat bar on my back for a bit. Stupid. I decided to shut it down at 365 and move on.
I’ll play this by ear, but not in a rush to push it too hard. Either way, I’ll be in equipment very soon.
BW 272 on Tuesday 7/1.
I literally ate terrible the WHOLE weekend between movies, concert, going out and bad food being around the house. Bad news. I have to get better at not eating everything I see.
Chris Della Fave came into town and we worked on his squat and his bench. Went well. Look for BIG things from Chris in the near future. His best total is 2465@242 with a deadlift only pull of 843 at 242. Once he dials in the details, the sky is the limit. He will also be keeping a log here soon. Keep an eye out.
Look for some footage of the Team dialing in Chris’ form on the bench. I think he’s MUCH stronger, better base along with more leg drive now.
