Well, well, well…isn’t this a Christmas miracle worth talking about!
About a month ago Brian Shaw was asked by a fan what was his opinion about the much-discussed and talked about documentary about veganism-Game Changers and one of its biggest stars, Patrik Baboumian, also known as “World’s Strongest Vegan”.
Brian being a monstrous omnivore who basically eats meat with every meal responded that he didn’t care that much about the documentary and with a bit of a skeptical viewpoint, challenged Patrik to prove his world record lifts in Brian’s giant ass home gym.
Patrik quickly responded clarifying a few things from Brian’s video and saying he’s down to come to Brian Shaw’s home gym and suggested they contest their strengths in a max squat battle. Not much was mentioned about this potential collaboration of the century until yesterday when the 4 times WSM winner, uploaded a Q&A video. In it, he gets asked about this potentially awesome match up and Brian has a response that will make you jump and down like a little girl.
Firstly, he says Patrik misunderstood some things and that Brian’s offer to challenge him wasn’t an open invite for any lift he wishes. It was an invite to demonstrate his Strongman records.
However, Brian still said he won’t be backing down and further stated if Patrik can get to the US and to Brian’s home gym he’d be down for some good lifting content.
Since Patrik suggested max squat battle with wraps, Brian set up some terms of his own. He said if the two monsters would clash in a squat-off, no wraps are allowed. If Patrik wants to go raw, he will have to go raw without any lifting gear at all.
