You’ve brought a human into the world and it’s a wonderful thing but…it’s also really hard work — which you will have to do with not enough hours in the day and on not enough sleep. Add getting back to strongman training into the mix, and you have a whole new set of challenges. But fear not, ladies. As with every situation in life, there is someone out there who has walked this road before you, and might have some insight that will just make it all better. Well, maybe not all better, but at least easier.
Kalle & Mike talk about Europes Strongest Man arguably the most entertaining show of the year with an amazing battle between Eddie Hall and Hafpor Bjornsson that came down to the stones.
