Brian Carroll Training log Week 5, day 1 Bench with Video


Big 3

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.

Floor press
Moved to sets of 3. Shoulder was feeling off
365×3 – shoulder feeling dry

Close grip with SS pad

Band fly

Piston press-down

Side lateral

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.

Brian is a world-class powerlifter with over two decades of elite and pro-level powerlifting under his belt. Coming back from a devastating back injury in 2012 that broke multiple bones and that most experts said he would never recover from, he has returned to the pinnacle of world-class lifting (while 100% pain and symptom-free) and is now dedicated to helping others avoid the same mistakes that he made in the past through private and group coaching in Jacksonville, FL. Brian’s impressive recovery has given him the opportunity to teach and deliver talks to physical therapists, chiropractors, medical doctors, professional strength & conditioning coaches and experts from all facets of sport, on how to avoid injury, while building anti-fragile strength and resilience in athletes.
