JP Carroll


JP Carroll is an elite powerlifter from Chicago, Illinois. His top achievement in the sport is a 945-pound squat which is currently ranked third on PL Watch and tenth in the top-20 all-time squats. His best total is 2250 — His current goal is to total 2300. His motto: "I’ve dug myself into many holes in life… Here I stand with a big back, broad shoulders and my head held high. Adversity builds character. The scars both physical and mental I carry, serve as reminders that after the darkest nights the sun shall rise again. I’d rather be laid to rest with arthritic hands, a broken heart and scarred skin than being put in my box having led an uneventful life, exiting unscathed — everybody dies, but not everybody lives."
