26 Sep Training update!!! Week 7, day 3
I’m currently training for the RPS Meet in FT Lauderdale, Oct 25. I’m 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.
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
15 singles, fast paced
Barbell rack rows: 3×5, 2×10
Barbell shrugs: 3×10
Piston squats: 4×5
KB swing: 3×12
Hammer curl: 3×12
Band fly: 3×15
Man, what a last few weeks…….
I got a good one in on this day, but I’m behind. I have to make some big things happen over the next few weeks. One thing is for sure: I’m not OVER-trained!
I guess this is better than being beat to shit.
I’ll make a post about the traveling, but training has been subpar at best but I’ll be ok.
I have a BIG training session this weekend(tomorrow)
I have to take an opener, a second and then let it ride and do some deads to about the same % range.
Monday is a big bench day too, then we are doing the seminar in Howell, Michigan “strength for a lifetime”, October4&5. Spots are still available if you’re interested in coming.
We will be training at MBB on Saturday, the day before the seminar and I’ll be taking all 3 lifts. Looking forward to it! You can register for this as well and come hang out. There are spots available for this as well. Hit me up if you have any questions: briancarroll.lmt@Gmail.com
