Brian Carroll | Week 2 Squat & DL | RPS Redemption Training

Photog Credit: MoneyMakrmike


I just finished competing at the RPS US Open in San Diego, CA April 23 where I won the equipped overall best lifter with a 1091 squat, 788 bench and a 771 dead for a 2651 total – second alltime at 242.I took a week off from training and now ramping up for the RPS Redemption meet 5/28/16 where I will compete at 242 again, along with a few other teammates on

Normal warm-up as usual
KB Swings
McGill Big 3
Band shoulder dislocations
Empty bar

The goal for the day was last warm-up on the squat and dead. Keep in mind, this is not optimal for peaking or longevity (doing back to back to back meets) but I’m being very smart about it. In my experience, doing about 2 meets a year is the best.

950 – last warm-up full Inzer gear.

625×1 – last warm-up

A. One leg GM: 3×10
B. Stir the pot: 50

I was smoked after this one. Good session and the first (real) squat session is always hard to get back in mentally and physically. Things that need to be loose are tight and things that need to be tight are loose. But considering all it felt good. Not much time going forward, but I will make the most of it.
