Brian Carroll: Week 5 Squat and Deadlift

Big thanks to and for supporting TeamPRS and!

After 3 months of lack-luster (or lack thereof) training post Arnold, I’m following the offseason Combo template straight out of the 10/20/Life book for the next 10 weeks. The only modifications I’m making is low reps with the squat and deadlift, but normal higher (4/5) reps with bench. I’ll make up the total volume on my assistance work concerning the squat/DL. I have no meet plans in sight.

Crazy week after this squat and dead session, so since last Saturday’s training, its really been a wash. We Ria and I celebrated our 7year wedding anniversary on Monday, so I did a light fluff and buff quickly, and then I fell/slipped down my stairs which messed up Wed’s training.

Normal Warm-up
A. Band fly/Band shoulder dislocation
B. McGill big 3
C. Goblet squat
D. Empty bar x20

Saturday 7.15.17
Goal: singles to RPE 7
Top set of 400x1x4 with SSB
Top set of 500×1 off 4″ blocks
C. One leg GM: 3×10
C. Suitcase carry with 65lb KB 200 yards
C. Stir the pot 60

Good session! Admittedly, I suck at the SSB, plus I’m weak. Makes for a slow squat day but got some work in. Getting better though.

This summarizes this lackluster 5 weeks of training, which surely I’ll easily beat the next 5 weeks. I did bang up my knee and my ankle when I slipped down my stairs, so we will see if squatting is in the cards.

I hope to continue to make small improvements over the next 20 weeks as things get less crazy in my life.

Super awesome to see.. Oh, what could have been. My favorite is the warning track laser to nail Harold Reynolds, one of the fastest guys in the American league during this time.
