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 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.
