Training update!!! Week 7, day 3


I’m currently training for the RPS Meet in FT Lauderdale, Oct 25. I’m at about 10 weeks out. My bodyweight is hovering around 264 in the AM, and I will slowly move toward 260 over the next couple of months, where I want it to stay.

I’m going to compete at 242, as I feel better there, overall.

For the full story of why I decided to go 242, read this: A Look in the Mirror, Part 1

Man, what a last few weeks…….

I got a good one in on this day, but I’m behind. I have to make some big things happen over the next few weeks. One thing is for sure: I’m not OVER-trained!

I guess this is better than being beat to shit.

I’ll make a post about the traveling, but training has been subpar at best but I’ll be ok.

I have a BIG training session this weekend(tomorrow)

I have to take an opener, a second and then let it ride and do some deads to about the same % range.

Monday is a big bench day too, then we are doing the seminar in Howell, Michigan “strength for a lifetime”, October4&5. Spots are still available if you’re interested in coming.

We will be training at MBB on Saturday, the day before the seminar and I’ll be taking all 3 lifts. Looking forward to it! You can register for this as well and come hang out. There are spots available for this as well. Hit me up if you have any questions:

Here is the link to register, as well as get more info on the weekend:

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.
