22 May Brian Carroll Week 8 day 2, 3 & 4 offseason
I just finished competing at the XPC Arnold Finals 3/7/15 where I totaled 2610@242 and won the overall. I did not achieve ALL of my goals but I’m still happy with the results, not content.
I am registered to compete in August at the RPS Meet in NJ, but first guest lifting at the RPS Ft. Myers meet May 30, followed by a Seminar on Sunday, May 31. Register HERE!
The plan for summer is to take my heavy weeks while home, and working raw and in briefs while gone on the road. Too many distractions while traveling to ensure that I’ll be on point and have all I need to go over 1k on the squat.
See all these 10/20/Life t-shirts and hoodies in picture above! You can order them HERE
NEXT SEMINAR UP: Long Island, NY June 6!. You can sign up HERE
This spring, summer, AND fall, Team PRS will be covering a good bit of the United States doing SEMINARS AND CLINICS so make sure to check our schedule to see if I’ll be near you! If you are interested in having our team come to you, contact me here: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I wasn’t feeling great on Sunday (usually train on Monday) and was feeling a little bit beat down so I took it pretty easy…
Allergies have been giving me fits and the traveling has NOT helped!
Incline DB press: 8×10 – light
Band fly: 3×20
Band skull: 3×20
Side lateral: 3×20
Explosive Push-up: 5×5
Easy day but I needed it. I forget sometimes that I need to just take days off on occasion when I feel crappy.
NOTHING. I had some tissue work and adjustments done on Wed and Thursday this week. My hips have shifted a bit and I think it’s due to walking on uneven surfaces as I can feel it happen (twisting)
I’ve actually been foam rolling the crap out of my hips and ITB/Quads. Suddenly they are a MESS. I need to be better about doing my soft tissue recovery but the truth is I’ve felt great!
Fluff and buff
Mcgill big 3
DB OHP: 3×10
Side lateral: 3×10
Hammer curl: 3×10
Band fly: 3×15
Band skull: 3×15
A very light week as you can see! I’ll be pulling a little bit on Saturday to dial in my gear some but the meet is in a week. Not much time to get stronger only time to get hurt or weaker. NO thanks.
