Huge thanks to Captain and Inzer Advance Designs for supporting my lifting!

Brian Carroll_-62

New block that I started 9/5
Monday – raw bench off chest, Raw boards then some shirted (that’s it the whole day)
Wed – Squat/DL assistance – rowing, split squats, chins, leg press etc
Thursday – Bench assistance & Fluff and Buff
Saturday – Squat(adding gear soon)/DL (staying raw & off blocks for a while) & Leg press (wraps, shirt and squat suit for this)



Great training day on Saturday. Here is what it was

Normal warm-up (was a little sore from Wed still)

Squat (all singles now)
730 – added preds
820 – added suit
900 full gear
955 – same (last warm-up)

Deads 4″ blocks

Form pulls
405 4 singles

Stir the pot: 100

Squats really didn’t feel as great out of the bottom as I wanted. The form felt great, and light on my back, just didn’t fire up as fast I thought they should. But, very happy with my form and set-up. Feels dead on. This is last warm-up range but still should move faster IMO. I’m going to make a few adjustments this week to see if I’m faster next week. Time will tell – not very worried.

Deads both form and block pulls felt snappy and fast. Deadlift is on I feel. Now to get the other 2 lifts dialed in.

5 week or so.

I’ll be shirting up tonight for bench and taking similar percentages as Saturday. It’s almost time to turn it all the way on.

I’ve been doing some fishing lately and they are biting nicely. This is great for me to relax and recover since I don’t have to go very far.

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.
