05 Oct Update – what has been going on!? – Brian Carroll
I’ve been training, working, and filming a lot, but I feel bad that I haven’t updated in the last few months; but I’ve been working on a few projects that have taken more time than expected. Most know Power Rack Strength has released its CBD now, and I’ve been working on growing that for the last few months.
CBD: It is received very well, and the feedback has been incredible. Each person has been different in how they respond, as some have enjoyed the Sublingual drops for sleep and overall relaxation, the Topical healing balm for skin issues, muscle, and joint pain. And the most popular product is Cryo-freeze, the most potent product that we carry – it has 1000mg of CBD isolate with purity tests included.
We are STILL working on a payment processer, my apologies to everyone. But for now, you can email me directly: Brian@PowerRackStrength.com – and you can send me a screenshot of what you want, and your address and I’ll make sure you get it.
And, IMO this is the overall best deal when you consider a roller-type Biofreeze is already about $20 from Walmart, with nothing but menthol and alcohol.
YouTube: I’ve been working on creating good content for those who need a little more than Gift of Injury and 10/20/Life. Some of the things are also applicable to Back Mechanic, but I now speak for Stu or his books, so please keep this in mind. Currently, I’m going through a series of my book 10/20/Life – where I walk you through the book and give some commentary. So make sure to check it out. There are about five parts up, currently with about 5 to go.
I also plan to go through some older articles and give commentary, and my thoughts on them and some stances of mine have changed or become a little more grey-ish.
Training: It’s been constant, but we are only training together about two days per week due to life demands for some of the guys, so I’m training the third day on my own.
I’m back to benching again, but nothing heavy. I’ve taken the last year to heal and recover mentally and physically and am finally getting the drive to train. I can’t believe it’s already been a year since my last meet, so that’s crazy. We are doing a volume phase of light lifting but moving fast, doing some supersets and some circuit work. Full disclosure, I’m lost at times of how to train since this is the first time in forever since I haven’t had something on my mind to push toward concerning performance.
Last year was a whirlwind, and I’m still trying to catch my breath. Looking back, I should have slowed down when the babies were born and just been satisfied to train instead of pushing forward so hard, as I did. Unfortunately, this led to a lot of sickness and injuries last year. Those who have not had twins during a pandemic cannot fully understand what the previous year was like for us. It was a blessing but not easy to manage at times with all that was going on. Therefore: Torn pec, shingles, covid, torn biceps all within five months of the babies being born, which didn’t help the fact that we had very needy twin babies. I feel bad that I added to my wife/family stress, but it’s hard to see when you have the type of tunnel vision I’ve had at times. Thankfully I see it now.
In the future, I will update my blog weekly, update my training, and start to share some things we are doing in the gym, and feature clients who are doing big things.
