Brian Carroll | Week 3, days 3 & 4| Squat/DL assistance and fluff and buff|

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.

Staying on my adjustments weekly (sometimes 2 weeks) and my soft tissue work daily.

Ok, I’ve had a pretty awesome 2 weeks of training and I plan on making it last for another week.

I’m going to log my Squat/DL assistance day and my Thursday Fluff and buff day.


Normal warm-up
Band fly

McGill chins: 12
Barbell Rack Row: 5×5

Great session. I can really see and tell that my legs are really filling out with this direct quad work! Feeling good overall and happy with the progress I’ve made in the last few weeks and the changes that I’ve made.

Thursday: Fluff and buff

Normal warm-up

Band fly: 4×15 – over hand and under
Band press-down: 3×12
Band punch-down: 3×12
Skull with Key press: 3×15
Hammer curl: 3×10
Incline DB press: 3×10

DB upright row: 3×10

Another good one with a sick pump, bro. Haha. But really, it felt great and so is my body. I really tend to despise these light bb days bc I feel like I dont accomplish much but really, it’s exactly what I need right now with recovery, a little more direct pec and shoulder work and attacking my weak areas.

I’m going to throw my Leviathan Ultra Pro on tomorrow and will take some weights as I work on a few things that were incorrect last cycle. I’ll post the video tomorrow night.
