I have to admit, I’m a bit spoiled living with a Strongman. Even on his deload week, his weights are still more than any I’ve been around. On other weeks when he’s going for PR’s? Strong.
Then I stopped by Kirk Remer’s Winner’d Edge Sports Performance to drop off some Hawaiian Mauna Pua for the Strongman hanging around and watched Brian Shaw pull 905# for a double. I knew he was going to pull one but when he started setting up for his 2nd, I went “Uhhhhh, huh?’
It made me step back, STRONG was just redefined. It was a moment.
He’s also as nice as everyone says he is. A good lesson to anyone coming up in the Strongman world who believes themselves to be too important to smooze. If he can, you can. If you’re in the area, make sure you come down to Bradford Beach on Saturday to meet Brian and watch some of the Strongest battle it out. Rain or shine, it’s going to be a good day!
