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.

Here’s a couple of Q&A videos that Byrd and I did last week —

[wa-wps]

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

Last real squat & DL session, and it went pretty well. Shown above are my openers of 1020 and 725. Moved pretty well. I have a couple of things to adjust as always but in a pretty good spot overall.

Normal warm-up McGill Big 3

Squat
710 in Preds and wraps
830 – full gear
930 – full gear, last Warm-up
1020 – opener
1100 – RB

Dead
405
500
605 – last warm-up
725 – opener

Random core work and such- then done. Felt pretty good but the squat was not as speedy as I would have liked.

I’ll be benching tonight and will take a few benches to low boards and hopefully finish super strong with confidence in the bench.

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.
