Experienced Feedback

Are you not making progress anymore? Beat down, back-pained, hurting, and sick of it? From what foods to eat, supplements to take and when, live video form corrections and movement evaluations, and obtain guidance toward the direct path to success without overthinking it.


Before you panic, sit down for a Video Call (Google Meet) or phone call with Brian Carroll, bounce your ideas off him, and get PROFESSIONAL feedback from someone who has undoubtedly been there more than once over the last 22 years. In 2020, Brian was the first lifter to officially break the 1300lbs squat (1306) barrier in his 22nd year of powerlifting competition; after doing so, Brian retired from competition. Brian now focuses his effort on those back injured and is proudly the McGill Method Florida Certified provider in Jacksonville, Florida.


Ask Brian anything. Have you read Back Mechanic and can’t quite figure out the evaluation in Chapter 6? Is your pain triggers confusing? Have Brian walk you through the evaluation process and help you build a custom program specific to you. Brian is available for both online and in-person consultations.

Note from Brian Carroll Concerning Back Pained Clients:


“I have been fortunate enough to help hundreds of clients with back pain to become resilient again. The key here is help; I cannot do the work for you. I can only help guide you. Most of the success depends upon the client winding down their pain, following the program I suggest, and not breaking the “code.” It takes time to heal a back injury; in most cases, more than just a few weeks. It took me 18 months to return to the platform, as discussed in Gift of Injury.”


Make the most of your time with Brian — Here are my suggested steps:


Step 1: Read Back Mechanic and do the back pain assessment illustrated in the book in a step-by-step fool-proof process. I recommend getting the video-enhanced version of Back Mechanic as it has a video link of Dr. McGill walking you through the entire assessment and coaching process. I can’t overstate how important this component is.


Step 2: Once you have read Back Mechanic, the next read is Gift of Injury. Gift of Injury is my story (co-authored with Dr. Stuart McGill) of debilitating back pain and returning to the top of powerlifting once again, 100% pain and symptom-free. It addresses the psychological aspect of injury, and you see the tenets of Back Mechanic and the progressions back to lifting applied.


Why is this important? I empathize with the back-pained person and will never ask a client to do anything I haven’t done, i.e., take time off to heal from lifting.


Step 3: I suggest booking two hours for those dealing with a complicated/chronic back issue for years. For many, an hour is a good start, but unfortunately, the 30-minute slots are only for follow-ups as there needs to be more time to do any honest assessment.


Step 4: Trust the process. Some will need in-person coaching and assessment.

“I have empathy for those who have back pain. I’ve been there, and I know that meeting with a Dr. for 15min won’t get it done; neither will working with distracted and overloaded physical therapists who use cookie-cutter programs that just don’t work.


Maybe you have tried Yoga and pilates to no avail. Sure, some chiro adjustments may provide temporary relief, but it’s not removing the pain generator or irritant; they won’t get better until they address the root cause and remove it.


Until someone spends time probing and examining the client’s life, daily requirements, and goals, the chances of getting better and getting their life back are not good. This is where I can bridge the gap and make the most significant difference. “

Consulting & Back Pain Testimonials

Client testimonial Brian Carroll

Claudia is back pain-free and currently training to compete in physique

From Claudia: 
“I went to see Brian last July (2021). I was in pain (low back) for almost a year straight. Brian did a thorough assessment to explain how to heal my injury; He also explained the process and the importance of stepping back from lifting. I followed his guidance. For seven months didn’t touch a bar. Then, I did the same exercises for seven months to build a resilient core. Finally, 2.5 months ago, I started to lift again. I could not recommend Brian more. He is super knowledgeable and passionate about helping others. He also has a tremendous understanding of the human body and weightlifting. I am now pain-free and pushing toward competition again! Thank you, Brian!”

Sawyer back pain free

Sawyer has returned to lifting back pain and symptom-free.

Sawyer Levy: “I came to Brian about a compression fracture I got on my L3 in late February 2021 due to an accident sustained outside lifting. Reading Brian’s story in Gift of Injury drew me to seek his help. Brian helped me get on the right track with recovery, but the biggest thing was hearing from a powerlifter that had been through this before to stay away from the gym even if I thought I could continue to train. Not just hearing it from the doctor. Brian got me on the right track using the principles of the McGill method, and I am experiencing the benefits of that now. I will continue to work with Brian and recommend any powerlifter, strongman, Olympic lifter, etc., that has a back break or any back injury to do the same. Thank you, Brian.”
