Brian Carroll Week 8 day 2, 3 & 4 offseason

I just finished competing at the XPC Arnold Finals 3/7/15 where I totaled 2610@242 and won the overall. I did not achieve ALL of my goals but I’m still happy with the results, not content.

I am registered to compete in August at the RPS Meet in NJ, but first guest lifting at the RPS Ft. Myers meet May 30, followed by a Seminar on Sunday, May 31. Register HERE!

The plan for summer is to take my heavy weeks while home, and working raw and in briefs while gone on the road. Too many distractions while traveling to ensure that I’ll be on point and have all I need to go over 1k on the squat.

NEXT SEMINAR UP: Long Island, NY June 6!. You can sign up HERE

This spring, summer, AND fall, Team PRS will be covering a good bit of the United States doing SEMINARS AND CLINICS so make sure to check our schedule to see if I’ll be near you! If you are interested in having our team come to you, contact me here:

I wasn’t feeling great on Sunday (usually train on Monday) and was feeling a little bit beat down so I took it pretty easy…

Allergies have been giving me fits and the traveling has NOT helped!

Normal warm-up:
KB swing

Sunday Training:

Incline DB press: 8×10 – light
Band fly: 3×20
Band skull: 3×20
Side lateral: 3×20
Explosive Push-up: 5×5

Easy day but I needed it. I forget sometimes that I need to just take days off on occasion when I feel crappy.

Moving on….

Wed training/Thursday:

NOTHING. I had some tissue work and adjustments done on Wed and Thursday this week. My hips have shifted a bit and I think it’s due to walking on uneven surfaces as I can feel it happen (twisting)

I’ve actually been foam rolling the crap out of my hips and ITB/Quads. Suddenly they are a MESS. I need to be better about doing my soft tissue recovery but the truth is I’ve felt great!

Fluff and buff

Mcgill big 3
DB OHP: 3×10
Side lateral: 3×10
Hammer curl: 3×10
Band fly: 3×15
Band skull: 3×15

A very light week as you can see! I’ll be pulling a little bit on Saturday to dial in my gear some but the meet is in a week. Not much time to get stronger only time to get hurt or weaker. NO thanks.

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.
