10 Sep Brian Carroll | Week 1 bench & Week 2 squat and dead |
I just finished a very poor showing at the Battle of the boardwalk in NJ where I bombed on the squat. I’m currently dialing in my squat technique and will stay in some equipment over the next few weeks to dial in technique that is still new to me and I’m adjusting to.
I’m very motivated to do so. I’ve written about FAILURE being the biggest motivator for me. And it’s worked, once again.
I’ve come full circle and I’m back with Inzer Advance Designs, just like I was from 2006-2009 where I did some of my best lifting ever. I’m very excited about the opportunities this brings me and my team.
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.
I will get the squat and total record, even if takes 20 more tries. Support from family, friends, my team and Inzer will help get me there. I just have to execute.

I got back from Michigan last week and got a bench session in with some floor presses
top set 315×5
Incline DB press with band: 3×12
Bench dip: 3×15
DB skull: 3×12
DB skull with twist: 3×12
I wanted to get a good training session in before I headed off to do another seminar in VT, so I moved squat and DL day up to WED. I was not 100% recovered from the prior session friday but needed to get it it in.
600×2 – in Double Gripper wraps
710×2 – briefs and wraps
800×2 – same
Still having a little bit of an issue staying tight during reps but my first rep/unrack is much better.
I will load up the squat videos and post soon. I don’t have good reception as I post this and Dont want to use all of my data.
top sets 600 2×2 – straps down in Inzer Fusion
Direct quad work that I will be doing every Wednesday… I’m still pissed that I got behind and slacked on the direct quad/ham work. That wont happen again.
top set of 415×5
Leg press: 1000lb 3×10 – piston style as to not go into my lower back and keep tension on the quads. I’m really enjoying these.
This was a long training session but it felt great to really get some work done, and attack some weak points/dial in form.
Looking forward to getting back on the regular schedule (Saturday – squat/dl, Monday – bench, Wed – squat/dl Assistance and then Thursday – fluff and buff)
