Brian Shaw is leaving no stone unturned in his strongman training.
There’s a reason that Brian Shaw has been the World’s Strongest Man four-times now. The powerhouse has always looked to improve his strength by any means necessary. As the 2020 WSM draws near, Brian Shaw is beginning to add some additional wrinkles to his game.
Ahead of the biggest event of the year, Brian Shaw recently added a truck pull to his regimen. Building functional strength is always the name of the game and that means switching things up from time to time.

EXCUSES OR RESULTS?? – In this life making excuses is easy…quitting is easy…being mentally weak is easy… – Fighting through adversity is hard…not quitting is hard….overcoming challenges is hard….AND GETTING IT DONE IS HARD!! – I will choose the harder path every time because the easy path leads to nowhere I want to go! – I hope everyone’s week is off to a great start! BE GREAT! – @evolutionathleticsgear @trifecta @roguefitness @getnewage @probodycoach #shawstrength #evolutiontowardsgreatness #begreat
While he would usually do things at his home gym, it appears that Brian Shaw has been forced to leave his residence due to the wild fires in California.
“Sometimes in life you face adversity,” said Shaw. “Adversity causes some men to break, and it causes some men to break records. I think you guys can guess which camp I am in. So we’re going to get to work, we’re going to make it happen, and we’re going to get ready for World’s Strongest Man.”
That said, the strongman is still finding ways to push his training ahead of WSM. In a recent video Brian Shaw pulls a 770 Horse Power Shelby F150.
“We’re just trying to learn on the fly,” he said. “This is not something that I would recommend, but under the circumstances you’ve got to fight through it, you’ve got to make it happen.”
