A 1306 Pound Gift of Injury with Brain Carroll
Show Notes

This EP features Brian Carroll who is a world-class powerlifter with over two decades of record-setting powerlifting under his belt.  A competitive powerlifter since 1999, Brian is one of the most accomplished lifters in the history of the sport. Having lifted at the elite world-class level since 2005, Brian has well over a decade of world-class lifting experience. He has totaled more than ten times his body weight in three different classes, and both bench pressed and deadlifted over 800 pounds in two different classes. In his career, he’s totaled 2500 over 20 times in 2 different weight classes. Most recently in October of 2020, Brian set the record for the highest squat of all-time (regardless of weight class) lifting 1306lbs. The story of his all-time squat record is most impressive not just for the unbelievable accomplishment it is, but that it came after a challenging recovery from a devastating back injury he suffered in 2012 that many experts said, would likely end his career. Upon his return to the pinnacle of world-class lifting (while 100% pain and symptom-free), he is now dedicated to helping others avoid the same mistakes that he made in the past through his own private group coaching and mentorship. Now, much of his focus is on assessment, movement, and coaching with lifting skills, and what he has taken away from his McGill certification to help people get better at lifting and life.  Enjoy!
