Brian Carroll Week 3, day 1 & 2 Offseason

I just finished competing at the XPC Arnold Finals 3/07 2015 where I totaled 2610@242 and won the overall. I did not achieve ALL of my goals but I’m still happy with the results, not content.

I’m now looking to possibly compete at the RPS Atlantic City meet in August at 242. This will be another fun challenge for me as I will have a unique travel schedule throughout the summer. I will be having Adam Driggers and Jonathan Byrd keeping me accountable week to week when I’m in town starting at about 10 weeks out to ensure I’m getting adequate work in since my time home with the crew will be limited. I’ll also be enlisting the help of Scott Paltos and Beth Thomas to keep an eye on my programming while traveling and when to push and when to back off.

I’ll also bounce some things off of Daniel Dalenberg, Clint Smith and Zane Geeting here and there.

The plan is to take my heavy weeks while home, and working raw and in briefs while gone on the road. Too many distractions while traveling to ensure that I’ll be on point and have all I need to go over 1k on the squat.

I’m about ready to get back to training, and a steady diet that does NOT consist of all junk good. Almost ready.

My plan for this spring and summer is to continue to get my BW down, lean up and attack my weak-points and stay healthy. I want to be 255 or less going forward for my pre-contest work, as I don’t want to cut 20lb or more anymore and want to be healthier overall and just feel better. The closer I get to 250, the better I feel.

This spring, summer, AND fall, Team PRS will be covering a good bit of the United States doing SEMINARS AND CLINICS so make sure to check our schedule to see if I’ll be near you! If you are interested in having out team come to you, contact me here: briancarroll.lmt@gmail.com.

I was in the state of Maine last weekend and had a great time eating a lot of lobster and doing other cool things like that!

I got a chance to train with Teammate Danny Bellmore and watch him dial in his lifts for his upcoming Meet(s).

I really enjoyed being away but I got entirely too fat and this has to change.

I squatted for the first time since the meet and I could tell 100%. Everything felt rough but got better. Here is what I did:

Warm-up
McGill Big 3
Goblets
KB swing

Training
Squat: up to 335x2x2 haha

This felt fine, but I wanted to be able to walk over the next couple of weeks.

Bench: 135×10 – 5 sets with feet up
One leg GM: 3×15
Goblet squat: 3×10
DB row: 3×10
DB shrug: 3×10
DB bench: 3×12
More Birddogs and other stuff

I knew I wouldn’t feel like training Monday night, after traveling all day so I did everything on Sunday with Dan.

I’m ready to get back into a somewhat normal routine! My diet has been shit and so has my training. However, it did feel good to get back under the squat bar and do some lifting.

I”m going to get my crap together over the next week and get dialed in!

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.
