Hey Strong people! This week Kalle recaps his .... short lived return to competing, why his torn bicep turns Robert on, why injuries happen in Strongman how we have dealt with them and when it doesn't become worth it anymore. We talk about Atlas stones at the Crossit invitational, Rich Froning's "message" to Strongman. How everyone is socially awkward in person now and why we enjoy feeling vulnerable.
Along with delving into Strongman politics, There is more and more people competing in Strongman, contests, gyms, etc but less and less shows and opportunities for the pros? Who is at fault for this? How do we fix it?
Enjoy!
Sorry for the audio quality this week had some technical difficulties but managed to salvage it as best we could
