Trip to St Louis for a collab with Squat University

Back to blogging and trip to squat uni

It’s been a long time, but I will start blogging again. I hope you like the changes we have made to PRS over the last few months, and I plan on writing a lot more in the coming months. 

It’s funny. I’ve had about five different people from random places tell me they saw me on YouTube. Unfortunately, they didn’t see me on my channel, BUT this is why collaborations are so lovely, and I will tell you why. 

Back pained? Can’t sleep? Brian Carroll’s Power Rack Strength CBD is 100% THC-Free CBD Isolate. There’s ZERO THC in our balms, sublingual drops, gummies, or Cryo-freeze!

In August of this past Summer, I went up to St Louis to do some filming with Aaron Horshig of Squat University. We hit it off well, and I appreciate the collaborations that will come from this trip. 

So far, we have rolled out these five videos shown above. In the coming posts, I will detail each one of these videos. For now, they are above. 

Aaron and I have about 3-4 more left that we filmed, and that will be live over the next couple of weeks to months. 

One thing I learned about Aaron that all of us could do better with is work ethic. The guy is relentless with energy and willingness to learn, get his hands dirty, and work. 

What makes someone like Aaron successful? He’s intelligent, which doesn’t hurt, but he’s organized and has the system down. He plans each video meticulously. I appreciate him sharing his approach with me and for having me up, and it’s a win/win for both of us. 

Quote from my strength training book 10/20/Life 


“Call it under-recovery, under-resting, over-peaking, CNS over-stimulation, but regardless of name, overtraining does exist.”

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.
