25 Mar Brian Carroll | Week 11 Offseason | Squat, DL & Bench
Another productive couple of days in the gym.
Saturday, we went moderate squat and light pull. A few of us are kind of beat up; we adjusted as needed.
I worked on form with briefs, still need to go wider, but working on it! I hope to have this dialed in within the next couple of months. I went light on the deadlifts to work on squeezing the bar from the deck.
Good morning: 3×10 (super light)
Sled drags: 2×100 yd
A good session here! Shane squatted 800 in briefs for his first 800 squats ever, even more than his suit-PR. Steve is getting used to his preds as well as going 625 for a comfortable double. The raw converts need to work on their upper back and stability when they get under heavier weight, I’ve noticed. There is nothing else to note about Saturday, but a good day.
Monday, we benched and stayed with the football bar, and I worked on my tucked set-u I Feeling better each week.
Football bar bench: 5 sets of 3 with 225
Incline DB press: 4×15
JM press w/FB bar: 4×10
Hammer curls: 4×10
Viking Press: 3×10
Good session, but my shoulder wasn’t very happy with the last few weeks of having a bar on my back, so I backed off and worked form. I’m just staying proactive. All is good.
I did a live Q&A earlier today at 1 pm on IG and will start doing these every Wednesday. Briancarroll81 is the handle. But, during, I mentioned Bert and Mindy’s meet Oct 3, in Knoxville, would be my next meet as long as everything works out.
All in all, happy with what I accomplished these two major training days.
I want to give a big THANK YOU to Inzer Advance Designs, Jax Nutrition, Vox Medical, and Firebrand for their support!
