16-ish weeks until the Arnold, which is March 7.

I’m starting my offseason work this week. I’ve had enough time off now. I’m ready to get back to it.

I plan on bringing my bodyweight down to the 260 range vs 265 – 268 so I can make the cut as simple as possible. I’ll be working on dropping the weight over the next little bit.


We bought a new Mono and bench last weekend, so it was time to unload the them into the gym. Huge pain, but well worth it. This was basically my warm-up!

Thanks to EFS for the nice hook-up on their equipment from the WPC worlds. Great looking stuff for sure, great quality.

Normal warm-up
McGill big 3
BW Squats..

McGill chins: 20 reps
Barbell rack row: 3×10
DB shrug: 3×20
1-arm KB swing: 3×10
1-arm KB GM: 3×10
Goblet squat: 3×10
Hammer curl: 3×10
Rolling plank for time…

Good and fast session. I’ll be turning things up over the next few weeks and I feel the need. Chins felt GREAT — Good indicator. Fast and crisp.

Time to clean up the diet and not eat 3 boxes of cookies per lb of bw per day. haha.

Looking forward to getting under the bar again.

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.
