Just in case it’s not clear from this Derek Poundstone training video, Derek Poundstone is an incredibly strong individual. These are clips of his training routine leading up to the 2012 Arnold classic.
The last time I watched World’s Strongest Man, Mariusz Pudzianowski was still winning every single time. I tuned out for a while, but then got back into it when a buddy sent me a video of Mr. Poundstone.
Even though he’s a massive guy, he’s way smaller than the biggest competitors, which makes it even more fun to watch him dominate.
He’s also a police officer, which prompts an endless amount of “Wow I bet it’s scary to get arrested by him” type jokes.
Still, it’s probably true.
