Brian Carroll – Final 2 Training Sessions for the RPS US Open



Here’s a couple of Q&A videos that Byrd and I did —

I’ll be going head to head for 5K against Jimmie P, Tony P and Hopefully Matt M. Not sure if he can make it though.

Last 2 real training sessions going on here before the meet —

Monday, normal day really. Warmed up to last warm-up – 710 and opener 750

Massive thanks to Teammates Paul Key, Adam Driggers, Jason K, Byrd, Shane x2 and all who came to dial me in Monday.

I feel good about my bench really. I ended on a very good note and feel confident. I finished up with some DB presses, dips and some direct triceps work and done.

Wednesday – last squat day. I moved the squat up a few days (from Saturday) as Adam and Byrd had some ideas on what I should do moving forward on a few things. Long story short, I went to a 2xl Leviathan as my 3x was just too big. Good news is I felt great in the 2xl and believe I was giving up some poundage there.

It kinda sucked taking 1100 Saturday, benching 90% monday then squatting 80% again in full gear but now I can rest.

Took the following – 700 in briefs, 850 in full gear for 2 singles and then 940 for a single to finish up. Bodyweight is sitting between 262-265. Right where I want it to be.

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.
