Brian Carroll Training update

MBB Group

No training this week, really. I got some kind of stomach bug on Sunday night, and was down and out for about 36hr or so, with some daylight in between here and there. Initially, I thought bad food, but I think it was something going around, like a virus or something.

Monday – I went out to help the guys bench, but I was pretty much on an empty stomach and down about 7lb-ish. Didn’t want to push my luck, ended up leaving a bit early, was feeling crappy.

Tuesday – Still not feeling great, bodyweight 259, sooo LIGHT. By about 2pm was finally able to get some good food in, and I built up an appetite later that day and actually ate pretty good. I slammed a dozen Dunkin Donuts that night and a half gallon of milk.

BW back to 267

Wed- big surprise my stomach hurt and I was unsure if the Donuts was the best choice. A tattoo appt was scheduled at 12pm and I was not quite sure I would be able to attend. Somehow, After I finished my AM work, I headed over to get some ink and actually felt fine.

Brought a cooler of food and drinks – totally ready to get going. Ready for as long as needed.

The deal with my artist (he’s been tattooing me for 6 years) — to go until one of us tapped out aka done. At about 7hr of tattooing, and 8hr in the shop, we both were tapped. I have about 2-3hr left to go and some touchups that will be handled in next session.

Thursday – I turned 33 – YAY, so I treated myself to a sub-scap, pec and lat NMT torture session. I have to stay on this better. Missed last week, already scheduled for next. Some parts of the work felt good – some not. I’m SUPER tight and hate my lats/pec/arm-pit area worked on or even touched. It’s invasive. Over the years, I had many clients say the same when in the industry, esp sub-scap.

I plan on doing some core work Today (Friday 8/1) and be ready to squat and pull on Saturday, but sat is a deload, even though I didn’t get my bench in, still going to stick to the plan.

Meet is like 12 weeks out!

Need to get some volume in the next 2 weeks with new OverKill gear.

I hope everyone has a great and safe weekend, thanks for reading! [share title=”Share this Article” facebook=”true” twitter=”true” google_plus=”true” linkedin=”true” pinterest=”true” reddit=”true” email=”true”][author title=”About the Author”]

Owner and Founder at
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.
