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 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.
