13 Jan Brian Carroll Week 2, day 2 bench with VIDEO “Path to the WR total at 242”
Notice the title of the log
This is NO DISRESPECT to lifters like current and former 242 greats Juha, Panora, Hoff or ANYONE at all. It’s in reach and I want the total record, especially since I was pretty close a few months back. I’ve actually chased it on and off for the better part of 10 years.
I’m not predicting shit, calling my shot or anything like that. The fact is that I’m pushing that 2700+ at 242. Will I get it? Let’s see. I’ve hit it quite a few times at 275 while not being 100%. Either way, I’m on the path toward it, I just hope I get there, and will log pretty much everything about the process. This will also keep my accountable to make sure I’m doing what I need to be doing.
Arnold is about 7.5 weeks away or so from now, give or take.
Feeling good about training and my goals.
I was still filling a bit sick on Monday, but got the work done that I needed to and it felt pretty good. The only issue was breathing hard and being winded some.
605×2 – 2bd
655×2 – 2bd/1bd – no video

Band fly: 3×20
Band skull: 3×20
Happy with how things are progressing and everything is going to plan. I MIGHT be able to take a full week off (from heavy) in the middle of the cycle as last time and concentrate on core work, recovery and rest. Seemed to keep me fresh last time going into the meet. I’ll see after a few heavy weeks.
Pretty much came home and crashed last night and watched one of my favorite movies – The Great Gatsby. Sweet movie that I suggest you check out.
I also watched the College playoff game. Not what I expected – I hate Urban (he did the gators dirty) but he’s one hell of a coach, no denying that.
Lots of rest this week before I ship out to Wisconsin to do the Seminar with Paul Carter.
If you are in the area of Madison, I highly suggest you come out this weekend!
**also congrats to teammate zane geetting for his return to the platform and a nice and easy 705 raw dead![share title=”Share this Article” facebook=”true” twitter=”true” google_plus=”true” linkedin=”true” pinterest=”true” reddit=”true” email=”true”][author title=”About the Author”]
