Brian Carroll | 10/20/Life | Week 7, deload week

I’m looking at doing a tune-up meet this spring to knock off some rust, dial-in some details and make a final-last run for the WPO this coming November. I don’t quite know where I stand since I haven’t competed in over a year. I’m a realist-a lot can change in a year.


I’m behind, so get ready for a few rapid-fire log posts over the next 2 days. With some videos.

I was out of town last week working at the PFSCCA with some greats in our industry. Stu and I were brought to talk & work with NFL Strength coaches on injury resilience, core stiffness and transfer to performance on the field, which is, of course, the most important.

I will give a full update on that very soon, but to say I was part of a heavy line-up would be a large understatement.

This deload week was nothing really to write home. I honed in a few important aspects of my mental game/approach. I didn’t load the bar during this week, and only worked with KB’s but did a crap ton of core work.

Some lifters will need to have a bar on their back every week, but I always go back to this: availability supersedes ability. I’d rather be slightly undertrained than slightly overtrained at my athletic age. I’m no spring chicken.

Pretty boring, I know, but I have a lot more to write about in my post later today with some pretty big lifts and some video to go along with it.

Stay tuned.

Brian Carroll

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.
