Brian Carroll | Week 8 | All three lifts – last heavy session |

11873416_10153446349540365_3782137386816268616_nI’m less than 2 weeks out from the NJ Battle at the Boardwalk meet where quite a few lifters from the team will be competing. This should be a great time! I’ll be lifting in the 242 weight class.

I’ve come full circle and am 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.

Sorry for the delay but this was last saturday’s training session. I think it went pretty well but I’m never happy with how anything feels 2-3 weeks out. It all feels much heavier than it should.

Here’s how the day went:

Normal Warm-up
McGill big 3
BW squat
Band shoulder distraction/dislocations

added suit

525 – 3bd
620 – 2bd
720 – 1bd



No assistance was done following this marathon training session. I was super gassed when it came time to make my last few deads but that’s how the meet feels sometimes. I’m making up the assistance week on my assistance day.

All I plan on doing from now until the meet is some light benching/floor press, KB/goblet squats and maybe some upper back work here and there with my core work.

This meet prep has flown by like nothing else. It just seems like I was finishing up the Arnold and now it’s time to make the cut and lift all over again.

I’ll update this log with my weight every day leading into the meet starting this Saturday as the cut progresses and how it looks to be going. No 2 cuts are ever the same.

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.
