Brian Carroll Week 3 10/20/Life offseason training and overall update

Sorry for the delay in updating my log, I’ve been working on a few different projects that I will be rolling out in the next few weeks to months.

First of all, I’m going to be writing a lot more in the next few weeks and will be seeing/working with a lot more people in person for private clinics/seminars and training sessions. I have my home-gym near 80% completion and will be focusing on building a robust in-person powerlifting team here, and much less focus with athletes across the country.

I have about 5-7 dependable athletes coming to the house currently and will be looking for 2-3 more in the coming weeks to months. If you live in the Jacksonville area and are interested, Email me at or hit the contact button on the right of your screen “contact Brian.” The requirements are: you must be dependable, dedicated and bring something to the table. It has to be a win/win for everyone involved. Thank you.

Next, I want to take the time to thank everyone who has contributed to PRS over the last five years, but with everything going on, I need to focus my efforts in a more streamlined capacity, along with writing more as well as the athletes I have training at my house with me. TeamPRS will no longer be posting their training logs here, but I will have on occasion guest contributors and posts.

The last couple of years I haven’t written PRS content as much as I would have liked because all effort has gone into 10/20/Life Second Edition and Gift of Injury

This is going to change.

And Finally, my goal is to complete the MANY articles that I have started and saved for the correct time. Thank you for your patience in this process.

Ok, now onto training.

My shoulder feels about 95%. Huge thanks to Andrew lock for his guidance during this process. I’ve been back to benching light for about 3-4 weeks.

I’m back to doing all 3 lifts currently. I’m still keeping all of my shoulder work in every day, as well as my walks and McGill big 3.

I have no plans for a meet at this time.

Here’s some training video from the last couple of weeks:

These two training sessions felt good.

Bench on Monday was the first time over 2 plates post November injury. I’m taking my time each week and adding more weight. It’s sore after each training session but doesn’t ever hurt.

I worked up to a 500 deadlift after not pulling for a few months. This let me know that my subcap was certainly healed up as I would have felt it.

I missed squats on this week but will have more footage very soon as I’m using the SSB with some special handles to keep me honest.

The training group is getting a feel for each other and we have had some good sessions over the last couple of weeks. I’m looking forward to more soon.
