Huge congrats to Jason Pegg, and Chris Della Fave as well for their awesome showings! Read about how they did in their log.

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.

Oh, and I’m competing again in Oct 3 in Fort Myers!

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.

Meet is this weekend in Ft Myers, FL. I have some making up to do this weekend, for sure.

I didn’t do a traditional training mini-cycle as I only had a few weeks to prepare.

This lead to me having to take last warm-ups a week out. Oh well.

Normal Warm-up
McGill big 3
KB swing

820×1- full gear
920×1 full gear – last warm-up

These both felt a little heavier than they should have BUT the form felt good.

I then did some bench to work up to a little lighter than a half board.

600×2 – 2bd

Incline DB press: 3×15

I pretty much wrapped it up with some core work and some KB crap. I feel pretty good. As I write this, I weigh 255 in the am (I should wake up there tomorrow) so the cut is moving along nicely.

I’m going to do a couple more light workouts like I’ve done Monday and Tuesday to deplete some glycogen and help with the cut.

All in all looking forward to taking a shot at this total record and making it a good and fun day.

Coming back from a devastating back injury in 2012 that broke multiple bones and that most experts said he would never recover from, he has returned to the pinnacle of world-class lifting (while 100% pain and symptom-free) and is now dedicated to helping others avoid the same mistakes that he made in the past through private and group coaching in Jacksonville, FL. Brian’s impressive recovery has given him the opportunity to teach and deliver talks to physical therapists, chiropractors, medical doctors, professional strength & conditioning coaches and experts from all facets of sport, on how to avoid injury, while building anti-fragile strength and resilience in athletes.
