Brandon Morrison on a Horse not a Pony

Brandon Morrison of Lift Big Eat Big.

I’m a big fan of this guy. He has a sound research-based approach to nutrition, he regularly puts in the hard work necessary to improve in his sport (Strongman), and he accepts all things fitness – Strongman, CrossFit, Olympic Lifting, Powerlifting…anything, really.

Check him out doing today’s Axle Bar Complex at what looks to be 220lbs or so.

And keep in mind that he started the sport of Strongman when he was 6’3″, 170lbs. I guess I like the guy so much because he is a great example that Hard Work Works.
