Words and things, mostly words.
In addition to its annual namesake bodybuilding competition, the Arnold Classic is also host to the Arnold Strongman competition, and it’s something I’ve enjoyed matched for the past few years. Both events are split over 2 days, and I’m curious to see the results of both.
At the end of the first day, Hafthor Bjornsson was leading the pack after winning the deadlift and Husafell stone carry. I was looking forward to him battling it out with Brian Shaw again this year, but it seems as though Shaw entered the competition with some existing injuries and, as a result, his performances suffered.
I’m pretty busy this weekend, so I’ll have to do some catch-up, but the Rogue Fitness streams on YouTube have been great for keeping up with the event.
