Brian Carroll RPS US Open Week 2

NEW shirt logo coming soon! ^^

Cool song ^^


Buy some swag^^

I just finished competing in the XPC Arnold Finals where I didn’t have a great showing and missed a few lifts. This left me in Second place overall.

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

BTW – I don’t suggest jumping right back into training after a tough meet BUT I needed to get to work on a few things named below.

To be honest, I’m a little beat up feeling. I slept on my neck wrong a few weeks ago after I noticed my subscap, lat, trap and rhomboid tightening up on me – then BAM. Gridlock – my neck and whole chicken wing area is messed up. Luckily, I have a great team of Dr’s, Chiro and such that can give me the therapy and drugs needed to get past this. lol Thanks all.

I got through the first few training sessions, so now I’m going to deload for a week and let this loosen up then I have 2 nice and heavy training weeks before going to SD to battle.

Monday, I benched and it was a rough one…

Here’s what I did:

Normal warm-up…

3bd lockout work: 410×3 – 3bd, 460×3 – 3bd
Shirt on doubles:
720x2x2 all 3bd

Son of a bitch. I didn’t realize how beat up I was nor did want to. I was cussing, yelling, yelling-cussing and anything i could muster to get me fired up for the lifts. These are the days that SUCK.

I got what I needed done, but I have work to do. Deload and get to it!

I’ve been doing a lot of fishing lately and this has been super fun. It helps keep me sane. Our neighbors have been kind enough to let us use their dock as ours is getting built!

Here. We. Go!

As a kid I always wanted good brackish (salt and fresh) water to fish on behind my house and we have been fortunate enough to make it happen!

Stay tuned.

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.
