Brian Carroll – Week 3 of 6 – RPS US Open Training

Once, again – I’m super proud of the team I have put together and how they handled themselves in Ohio both on the platform, off it and in general all weekend. They were a HUGE help to me and I am really grateful.

I deloaded and didn’t really do much but here is my meet video from the XPC! Thank you Justin!

I just finished competing in the XPC Arnold Finals where I didn’t have a great showing and missed a few lifts. This left me in Second place overall.

I’ll be going head to head for 5K against Jimmie P, Tory P and Hopefully Matt M. Not sure if he can make it though.

BTW – I don’t suggest jumping right back into training after a tough meet BUT I needed to get to work on a few things named below.


DELOAD WEEK: Man, did I really need this! I beat the crap out of myself pretty good going right into training BUT I feel MUCH better after having what really is about a week off!

Tonight (wed) I will be getting back in with some SQT/DL assistance work and then prep for this weekend’s squat/DL session. Very much looking forward to this! I am ready to be a little bit selfish and take some weights the next few weeks!

To be honest, I really didn’t do too much other than fish, mcgill big 3, walk some and do a lot or rehab, recovery and got a lot of work done on my body.

I did do a little bit of work Monday. Here is what i did!

Band fly: 3×15
Incline DB press: 4×10
DB Skull: 3×15
Push-up (Speed): 4×4

Easy day, but felt good to get some work 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.
