April Training… Babies etc.

Babies are home, after only 2 days at the hospital along with NO NICU, thank God. We have been working on getting a schedule over the last 10 days or so, and so far pretty good. I’m still very tired, but I’ll adjust. I’m just glad Mom Rylee and Reagan are healthy and home.

Huge shoutout to my church, Bold City for helping us out in so many ways during this time. I really mean it, thank you to all of you who have brought food by or offered to. We appreciate you looking out.

Dude, I have had so many people reaching out for their lifting/backs/programming over the last week or two that it’s been crazy. Back injury really is a bitch until you get it figured out. With all the bad information out there, it’s no wonder why people stay hurt and continue to repeat the cycle. I want to help as many people as I can, so if you know someone struggling with their lifting/impacted by back pain, tell them I do a free Q&A every week on Instagram at 1 pm EST @Briancarroll81.

I’m still getting my sessions in, but I haven’t recorded much, to be honest. I’m going to get back on track with this starting tomorrow as we ramp up a new cycle with the cambered bar and bands. We’ve had a great group of people training, and it’s been awesome.

Still looking like 10/3/20 in Knoxville for my next meet. I’ll be going 275 for this meet.

I’ll update you more on training soon! Thanks to all of you who have reached out with kind words!

Brian is a retired world-class powerlifter with over two decades of world-class powerlifting. From 1999 to 2020, Brian Carroll was a competitive powerlifter, one of the most accomplished lifters in the sport's history. Brian started off competing in bench press competitions 'raw,' then, shortly into the journey, he gravitated toward equipped lifting as there were no "raw" categories then. You only had to choose from single-ply (USPF) and Multi-ply (APF/WPC). Brian went on to total 2730 at 275 and 2651 at 242 with more than ten times his body weight in three different classes (220, 242, 275), and both bench pressed and deadlifted over 800 pounds in two other weight classes. He's totaled 2600 over 20 times in 2 different weight classes in his career. With 60 squats of 1000lbs or more officially, this is the most in powerlifting history, regardless of weight class or federation, by anyone not named David Hoff. Brian realized many ups and downs during his 20+ years competing. After ten years of high-level powerlifting competition and an all-time World Record squat at 220 with 1030, in 2009, Brian was competing for a Police academy scholarship. On a hot and humid July morning, Brian, hurdling over a barricade at 275lbs, landed on, fell, and hurt his back. After years of back pain and failed therapy, Brian met with world-renowned back specialist Prof McGill in 2013, which changed his trajectory more than he could have imagined. In 2017, Brian Carroll and Prof McGill authored the best-selling book about Brian's triumphant comeback to powerlifting in Gift of Injury. Most recently (10.3.20) -Brian set the highest squat of all time (regardless of weight class) with 1306 lbs – being the first man to break the 1300lb squat barrier at a bodyweight of 303 lbs.
