Brian Carroll | 1 week out from Competition | last few sessions this week

11873416_10153446349540365_3782137386816268616_nI’m less than 2 weeks out from the NJ Battle at the Boardwalk meet where quite a few lifters from the team will be competing. This should be a great time! I’ll be lifting in the 242 weight class.

I’ve come full circle and am back with Inzer Advance Designs, just like I was from 2006-2009 where I did some of my best lifting ever. I’m very excited about the opportunities this brings me and my team.


I’m after the total record at 242 of 2695, and squat record of 1140. My best total ever is 2730, and best squat ever is 1185 – my best individual lifts combined are low to mid 2800’s at 275. My best total at 242 is 2610 and I will be adding to that very soon.

I was out of town for a few days but I planned for it well and brought my food and got my training in prior. I’m feeling good and my Bodyweight is right on track and maybe even a little bit ahead.

I’ll start the process soon and you can read how I do it HERE

This week in PL…..

Not too much to report right now but here is what I’ve done so far this week

Still walking a mile+ per day
Eating is right on point….. 300g of carbs per day but will be going to zero starting sunday-ish

Wednesday training:

Many Mcgill chins..
DB shrug
Hammer curl
KB swing
Leg extension
McGill big 3
Piston squat

More less just a BB day with some weak point work. At this point, being less than 2 weeks out, you can only get weaker or hurt. Neither is a great option.

Thursday training:
Band fly
Band pressdown
Incline DB press
Band Skull
McGill Big 3

DONE. Got a good sweat going with this one and that felt good. I start getting moody and grumpy when I don’t train heavy so it’s happening right now. Grumpy

I’m going to train on Saturday with some light SSB squats, some floor pressing and some light deadlifting (maybe). I have been doing a good job with my BB work this cycle and not getting ‘flat’ like I tend to do….

Byrd, DD, Bartl and others are set to have a really good meet.

HUGE thanks to Inzer and all of their support for my team!!!

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.
