15 Sep Brian Carroll | Week 3, day 2 | Bench
I just finished a very poor showing at the Battle of the boardwalk in NJ where I bombed on the squat. I’m currently dialing in my squat technique and will stay in some equipment over the next few weeks to dial in technique that is still new to me and I’m adjusting to.
I’m very motivated to do so. I’ve written about FAILURE being the biggest motivator for me. And it’s worked, once again.
I’ve come full circle and I’m back with Inzer Advance Designs, just like I was from 2006-2009 where I did some of my best lifting ever. I’m very excited about the opportunities this brings me and my team.
I’m after the total record at 242 of 2695, and squat record of 1140. My best total ever is 2730, and best squat ever is 1185 – my best individual lifts combined are low to mid 2800’s at 275. My best total at 242 is 2610 and I will be adding to that very soon.
I will get the squat and total record, even if takes 20 more tries. Support from family, friends, my team and Inzer will help get me there. I just have to execute.

Back and settled in from travel. I had a pretty productive day both in work yesterday and in training last night. It feels good to get things done that have been eating at you. I’ve wanted to make some changes to the website for a while now but have been too buried. That and wanting to write more but I’m back in the groove now, thankfully.
Last night (monday’s training)
Felt good to feel a little weight on the floor press. Nothing was heavy but it felt great to get some raw volume in and stay out of the bench shirt for a couple of weeks.
Here’s what I did:
McGill big 3
315 – all sets of 5
Incline DB press with light band 3×12
Side lateral 3×12
Bench dip 3×15
Skull & key press 3×12
Band press-down and fly 3×15
Felt great to get in the work train with the guys last night. It was a packed house and lots of energy in the gym. I’m looking forward to getting into a training groove over the next 2 weeks that I’m home.
All the fella’s getting ready for Bert and Mindy’s meet Oct 3 look good and ready to have a good day. This will be a fun meet. If you’re in the FT Myers area, make sure to check it out!
