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 world-class powerlifter with over two decades of elite and pro-level powerlifting under his belt. 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.
