25 Mar Brian Carroll Week 3 10/20/Life offseason training and overall update
Sorry for the delay in updating my log, I’ve been working on a few different projects that I will be rolling out in the next few weeks to months.
First of all, I’m going to be writing a lot more in the next few weeks and will be seeing/working with a lot more people in person for private clinics/seminars and training sessions. I have my home-gym near 80% completion and will be focusing on building a robust in-person powerlifting team here, and much less focus with athletes across the country.
I have about 5-7 dependable athletes coming to the house currently and will be looking for 2-3 more in the coming weeks to months. If you live in the Jacksonville area and are interested, Email me at Brian@PowerRackStrength.com or hit the contact button on the right of your screen “contact Brian.” The requirements are: you must be dependable, dedicated and bring something to the table. It has to be a win/win for everyone involved. Thank you.
Next, I want to take the time to thank everyone who has contributed to PRS over the last five years, but with everything going on, I need to focus my efforts in a more streamlined capacity, along with writing more as well as the athletes I have training at my house with me. TeamPRS will no longer be posting their training logs here, but I will have on occasion guest contributors and posts.
This is going to change.
And Finally, my goal is to complete the MANY articles that I have started and saved for the correct time. Thank you for your patience in this process.
Ok, now onto training.
My shoulder feels about 95%. Huge thanks to Andrew lock for his guidance during this process. I’ve been back to benching light for about 3-4 weeks.
I’m back to doing all 3 lifts currently. I’m still keeping all of my shoulder work in every day, as well as my walks and McGill big 3.
I have no plans for a meet at this time.
Here’s some training video from the last couple of weeks:
These two training sessions felt good.
Bench on Monday was the first time over 2 plates post November injury. I’m taking my time each week and adding more weight. It’s sore after each training session but doesn’t ever hurt.
I worked up to a 500 deadlift after not pulling for a few months. This let me know that my subcap was certainly healed up as I would have felt it.
I missed squats on this week but will have more footage very soon as I’m using the SSB with some special handles to keep me honest.
The training group is getting a feel for each other and we have had some good sessions over the last couple of weeks. I’m looking forward to more soon.
