Shrugged Collective

The Best of Rich Froning

This week on Barbell Shrugged, we turned the show over to Rich Froning, 4-time world’s fittest man and all-around amazing guy.

We have a history with the champ. If you can believe it, Rich made his first appearance on Barbell Shrugged way back on episode 2! That’s right, it’s incredible how much has changed in just a few years.

We’re fortunate to have seen it all unfold right up close. And now, you can watch the whole story from start to finish for yourself. Here is the very best of Rich Froning on Barbell Shrugged.

Hey, I hope you don’t have anything planned this afternoon. This will keep you busy for a long time.

Rich, thanks for all of your support over the years. It means the world to us. You didn’t have to sit down and chat with a us during episode 2, but you did.

The rest is history.

We’ve had a blast watching it all unfold, Champ. Best of luck to you and Team Mayhem.
