Huge thanks to Captain and Inzer Advance Designs for supporting my lifting!

Brian Carroll_-62

New block that I started 9/5
Monday – raw bench off chest, Raw boards then some shirted (that’s it the whole day)
Wed – Squat/DL assistance – rowing, split squats, chins, leg press etc
Thursday – Bench assistance & Fluff and Buff
Saturday – Squat(adding gear soon)/DL (staying raw & off blocks for a while) & Leg press (wraps, shirt and squat suit for this)



Great training day on Saturday. Here is what it was

Normal warm-up (was a little sore from Wed still)

Squat (all singles now)
730 – added preds
820 – added suit
900 full gear
955 – same (last warm-up)

Deads 4″ blocks

Form pulls
405 4 singles

Stir the pot: 100

Squats really didn’t feel as great out of the bottom as I wanted. The form felt great, and light on my back, just didn’t fire up as fast I thought they should. But, very happy with my form and set-up. Feels dead on. This is last warm-up range but still should move faster IMO. I’m going to make a few adjustments this week to see if I’m faster next week. Time will tell – not very worried.

Deads both form and block pulls felt snappy and fast. Deadlift is on I feel. Now to get the other 2 lifts dialed in.

5 week or so.

I’ll be shirting up tonight for bench and taking similar percentages as Saturday. It’s almost time to turn it all the way on.

I’ve been doing some fishing lately and they are biting nicely. This is great for me to relax and recover since I don’t have to go very far.
