I think when I saw this man competing was the first spark in my mind that I wanted to get into strongman. Brad Cardoza.
Man this weather is nuts. 75 degrees and sunny one day. 40 degrees and rainy the next. Good thing I don't give a damn about the weather! Hitting this training cycle hard, getting amped for upcoming competitions.
