Dan Dalenberg | Off Season | Week 10

I recently lifted at the Arnold Classic XPC meet where I totaled 1955, benched 500 raw and pulled a PR deadlift. Off season training has started after a nice long deload. I’m going back to what has worked the absolute best for me, having Brian Carroll handle writing my programming. 


Beat Week 1

Day 1

  1. Pause Squat- 5 x 5, beat 375

Worked up through a fairly easy 415 and shut it down.

2. Pause Deadlift- 5 x 5, beat 315

Up to 405 and done

3. Piston Squat

4. One Leg DL

5. Sit the pots

Day 2

  1. Floor Press- 5 x 5, beat 315

Went up to 335 with the swiss bar

2. Speed Bench

3. Incline DB

4. Dips

5. Stir the pot


Brian sent me an Inzer Fusion deadlift suit with the intention of using it as briefs. I did a little bit of squatting on Friday, off program, to try it out. I like the approach a lot. The Fusion is much thinner and easy to deal with as a brief, than it would be to jump straight into triple ply Predators. This suit fits about perfect and should work quite well for what we are using it for.

Also gearing up for this weekend’s RPS meet that I am running. Everything is coming together nicely. I went up to Flint to pick up a set of calibrated kilo plates, which made for a heck of a Sunday morning training session- loading and unloading about 500 kilos into the bed of my truck. I told Brian that I didn’t care what the program called for, I’m deloading after the meet next week.
