Brian Shaw Interview for MAB!
 
WSM runner-up and winner of the Arnold Classic pro-strongman contest, Brian Shaw, has aggreed to be interviewed by me for MAB. I of course have some questions in mind but want to know what the community would like to know about this champion. So, post questions that you have for Brian here and I will ask as many of them as possible.

Thanks

How long was he a lifter before he transitioned to strongman, and what pulled him to the sport?

Kickass Trev! Shaw is one of my favorites to watch!

What's his daily caloric total for on and off days. (if he counts)

Favorite excercise for pure overall strength, and best numbers for a non-strongman lift.(i.e., bench, deads, squats, etc, versus, farmers carry, yolk walk, etc..)

What one part of his strength does he want to improve the most?

I can't remember what it's called, but that event for squats where they just roll the next keg off the rack into a cage on the neck..how much does that suck when the keg hits?



Kickass again Trev! :march:

Ask him what his training currently looks like, and how it's different than a few years ago ( if it is ).

Oh yeah, tell him he's my strongman idol and I'm going to be just like him when I grow up. LOL. I'm only about 50 pounds away, hahahaha

Where's his favourite country to compete? What techniques does he use to psyche himself up before an event? Favourite event?

Very excited about this :rockon:

Does he have any suggestions for guys just getting into the sport and what he feels would be the proper way to start training?

I was going to ask something like this...

Should guys train like a powerlifter for several years to build up overall strength before adding in strongman training, or can they add in some strongman specific training right away?

For what it's worth, I know without a doubt that my pro strongman training buddy ( who put on the comp where Brian Shaw turned pro ) would say "guys should train like a powerlifter for several years..." ( that's what he, i.e. my training buddy, did ).
