Brian Carroll’s training log: last week of offseason training!


I’m currently training for the RPS Meet in FT Lauderdale, Oct 25. I’m in offseason training (for another 2 weeks) and will move into precontest at about 10 weeks out. My bodyweight is hovering around 264 in the AM, and I will slowly move toward 260 over the next couple of months, where I want it to stay.

NOTE: Team Samson will also be doing a Seminar the following day, stay tuned for details.

I’m going to compete at 242, as I feel better there, overall.

For the full story of why I decided to go 242, read this: A Look in the Mirror, Part 1

Mcgill Big 3
Band fly

Well, I continued on my rampage of eating badly, and demolished more crap in 2 days than I should eat in a month. Oh well, cleaning it up now.

Ben&Jerry’s, Oreos, Donuts, gallon of milk etc……

Needless to say, I was a little lethargic and bloated this session.

Mcgill chins
10 singles

One arm KB swing

Piston BB squat w/SSB
sets of 6 to 4 plates

Rack row

DOH sumo shrug
to 455×6

3 sets

Hammer curl

More mcgill stuff….

Good session! I pretty much put together my plan for the next 10 training weeks and took into account how I’m feeling currently, how training has went, and what I need to do going forward.

It will be a VERY complicated cycle, but fun!

I’ll give more info on it very soon.

Saturday, I’ll be squatting/benching/pulling all in the same day to condition my back for meet day.

Stay Tuned. [share title=”Share this Article” facebook=”true” twitter=”true” google_plus=”true” linkedin=”true” pinterest=”true” reddit=”true” email=”true”][author title=”About the Author”]

Brian is a world-class powerlifter with over two decades of elite and pro-level powerlifting under his belt. Coming back from a devastating back injury in 2012 that broke multiple bones and that most experts said he would never recover from, he has returned to the pinnacle of world-class lifting (while 100% pain and symptom-free) and is now dedicated to helping others avoid the same mistakes that he made in the past through private and group coaching in Jacksonville, FL. Brian’s impressive recovery has given him the opportunity to teach and deliver talks to physical therapists, chiropractors, medical doctors, professional strength & conditioning coaches and experts from all facets of sport, on how to avoid injury, while building anti-fragile strength and resilience in athletes.
