Brian Carroll | Week 12 | Squat and DL with video

I’m still training, and getting closer to being a Dad. I did see that my friend Daniel Dalenberg is going to be a Dad, too in Sept. Congrats, dude.

Anyway, I decided to I needed a lighter week on the squats, so I took the SSB and did very fast sets of 5 with 3 plates, then wanted to pull something for 5. I needed a week out of the squat briefs, and I feel better already as I work my squat out wider.

Here’s how it went:

SSB squats: 335x5x3

Wagon Wheel deads (about 3.5″):






Nordic curl: 3×3

Sled drags: 100yd x2 trips front/backward

Good session! Squats were easy and fast. Sets of 5 on the deadlift, with a new bar sucks, but it’s what we are doing right now. I’m thinking more outside the box, and letting the guys have more input into what we do. It’s been nice to sit back more and just train.

Deads didn’t feel good but you won’t feel good every session. Most times meet day, when it’s time to pull you won’t feel good so you have to push on. On the first rep, I thought “this is heavy, I must have the coronavirus.” I kept going and made the set.

There’s nothing I like better concerning lifting than waking up Sunday morning feeling wrecked from a productive session of squats and deads. I just love it. Getting out of bed, groaning while I walk around and moan when I have to move; but I finally confessed to Ria that it’s fake. I have been faking it like Kramer.
