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”]
