15 Jul Brian Carroll | Precontest Week 4, day 2 | Bench
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.
My next meet is RPS Meet August 29, in Atlantic City, NJ. I’ll be lifting at 242.

New NEXT LEVEL Guys & Girls Shirts NOW loaded HERE
I knew going into Monday’s bench session that it would not be an easy night. I was feeling a little beat up but not terrible.
We had a plan for the night and was not totally sure how things would go with the shirts being tightened up…
I just knew I had to get through this session and I’d be good for 10 days! Byrd and I both knew it was an important session to grind through.
Here is how it went:
McGill Big 3
550×3 – 3bd
640×3 – 3bd
730×2 – 2bd
760×1 – 1bd
800×1 – 2bd
900×1 – 2bd – passed on it – didn’t do it.
So after we finished..when John went to his car and checked his temp, it read 94* at 9:00pm. I know it’s not accurate but it is a for sure indicator that it’s still hot at night. I have never sweated like this in my life. My shoes were drenched so bad that I was squishing water with each step I took during training coming from inside.
We got through our sets and did what we needed to do. I had some issues grooving my shirt this day and it’s due from it being tighter. I’ll need another week to break it in but then it will be money. Everything felt heavier than it should have but it’s that point in training.
John and I had a bet about a 2bd press and I spotted him 50lb. I had 900 loaded up but thought better of it and let John have his day. He hit an easy 820 on his first attempt and I knew I’d need around 900 so that’s why I called for it. No need for stupid injuries – “are you being a pussy or being smart. In the gym, err on the side of
I’m going fluff and buff for about 10 days and will pick back up in Charleston, SC for our seminar July 25 & 26 which you should be attending!
The plan for next heavy squat session is 1050 and 1115 straight weight this day (July 24th). We are going to open this session up to the public so make sure you come if you can to train, eat and hangout prior to the seminar weekend!
Very happy with how the transition into the new Inzer gear is going as well as training. Very excited for the meet as well.
Inzer is backing me HUGE and I’m very happy about this. Some very cool things coming for team PRS.
