Who Is The Most Complete Strength Athlete? Strongman, One Ton Challenge, Oly Lifter, or Powerlifter w/ Travis Mash, Ryan Fischer, Anders Varner, and Doug Larson — Barbell Shrugged #424

This episode starts with a recap of the recent trip to Eleiko HQ in Halmstad Sweden. The guys made their own barbells, took a cold bath in the North Sea, sat in steaming hot saunas, ate delicious food, and trained at the baddest gym in the world. It was an experience unlike any other.

The second hour, recorded in Copenhagen Denmark is a heavy discussion on training, strength, and a debate on who the most complete strength athletes in the world. 

In this episode of Barbell Shrugged, Anders Varner and Doug Larson discuss:
