30 Mar Brian Carroll – Week 3 of 6 – RPS US Open Training
Once, again – I’m super proud of the team I have put together and how they handled themselves in Ohio both on the platform, off it and in general all weekend. They were a HUGE help to me and I am really grateful.
I deloaded and didn’t really do much but here is my meet video from the XPC! Thank you Justin!
I just finished competing in the XPC Arnold Finals where I didn’t have a great showing and missed a few lifts. This left me in Second place overall.
I’ll be going head to head for 5K against Jimmie P, Tory P and Hopefully Matt M. Not sure if he can make it though.
BTW – I don’t suggest jumping right back into training after a tough meet BUT I needed to get to work on a few things named below.
DELOAD WEEK: Man, did I really need this! I beat the crap out of myself pretty good going right into training BUT I feel MUCH better after having what really is about a week off!
Tonight (wed) I will be getting back in with some SQT/DL assistance work and then prep for this weekend’s squat/DL session. Very much looking forward to this! I am ready to be a little bit selfish and take some weights the next few weeks!
To be honest, I really didn’t do too much other than fish, mcgill big 3, walk some and do a lot or rehab, recovery and got a lot of work done on my body.
I did do a little bit of work Monday. Here is what i did!
