Brian Carroll | World’s strongest squatter: Week 1 Squat training – recap

Happy New year!

I hope everyone is doing well; I wanted to give an update on my training and what’s been going on.

I’ve been a little under the weather, but thankfully feeling better now and got a training session in. This is just week 1.

I worked up to 465×5 on the squat, working sets of 5 (this set didn’t get recorded).

I did my usual belt squats, good mornings and suitcase carry afterward. Nice and light. No reason to push anything right now, just easing back into it.

Everything feels good, and I’m looking forward to getting back in shape. I have a vacation planned in March, and right now I’m too heavy and too fat. No good. In my last post, I was down to 288 but I’ve dad-bodded back up to 295, unfortunately. Holiday food and Reese’s cups get me.

I followed that with some belt squats and good mornings. I’m going to give a full write-up on my squat training for the 1306 this Friday, so stay tuned. There really are not secrets, but I did have a system I used during my training after I injured my arm. It consisted of a lot of direct squat work, and many variants of belt squats. I’ll give all the details soon as well as the techniques I used on the belt squat.


I’m also going to be teaching a lot concerning the squat (equipped and raw) via live & online seminars and videos, so be on the lookout! Be on the lookout for a lot more content and such.

Speaking of squat, I’m now officially carrying the best wrap on the market, Overkill Strength wrist, and knee wraps. Which will be live 1.4.21 tonight! I’m really excited about helping people add the best wrap to their gym bag. You can get there here, by Monday evening!

PS- I haven’t written about my other lifts because I haven’t been much, this changes now.
