On this weeks American Strongman Radio, Kalle and Bryan go solo… as it were, to discuss in part, the 2015 Arnold Amateur Strongman in Columbus March 6th and 8th. In particular are some tips for getting around Columbus, hotel reservations, meet and greet, how to pack and prepare for the worlds most incredible 53 sport event. In the 3rd segment of the show, we discuss what we believe are potential “mystery events” for this years final event on day 2.

Charlie Brown, NAS schedule, Christmas shopping and much more on this weeks ASR!
