14 Sep Brian Carroll | Week 2, day 2 | Fluff and Buff and Seminar in VT!
I just finished a very poor showing at the Battle of the boardwalk in NJ where I bombed on the squat. I’m currently dialing in my squat technique and will stay in some equipment over the next few weeks to dial in technique that is still new to me and I’m adjusting to.
I’m very motivated to do so. I’ve written about FAILURE being the biggest motivator for me. And it’s worked, once again.
I’ve come full circle and I’m back with Inzer Advance Designs, just like I was from 2006-2009 where I did some of my best lifting ever. I’m very excited about the opportunities this brings me and my team.
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.
I will get the squat and total record, even if takes 20 more tries. Support from family, friends, my team and Inzer will help get me there. I just have to execute.

Back from NJ and VT!
It feels great to be home, though, I must say. I had a GREAT time coaching the awesome attendees at FairHaven Fitness last weekend! Huge Thanks to Scotty P for driving us up or down, whatever.
What a great weekend and thank you to Meghan and Jamie for having us up and believing in what we are teaching and doing. If you’re in the VT/lake George NY area, you must drop by. I love this gym and the vibe there. Make sure you drop by and lift in you’re in the area. They also run some great RPS meets as well!
I want to take the time to thank my team for all of their help, support and faith during this first year of being a ‘team’ and their help with content, seminars and just going through growing pains that are going to happen with something this new. It’s not an easy thing for people to coexist with egos, different backgrounds and personalities but I must say this group is incredible and they mesh very well.
I have chosen very carefully who to add and who to associate with. This is not an easy thing but I think we are in a good place.
Ok, now my training session last Friday.
I got a lot of work done last weekend and you’ll see quite a few articles coming through in the next few weeks on PRS but I did manage to train some. Here is what I did for my Fluff and buff day
McGill Big 3
Side lateral: 3×12
DB shrug: 3×12
DB press: 4×10
Hammer Curl: 3×12
Rolling Plank: 3×15
Skull with key press: 3×10 each
Good session for what it was. Nothing heavy but did move some blood around and felt much better after. I did a crap-load of volume on Wednesday and felt pretty hungover on Friday am. Feeling good now, though.
I’m looking forward to fixing a few things over the next 3 weeks and I feel great about some of the things addressed.
BW is sitting between 262 and 264. I feel leaner and bigger right now than I was going into the meet. Weird.
