J.T. Straussner and myself were asked to do some bending and feats of strength for entertainment at the Arnold Classic in conjunction with The Mighty Mitt’s Grip contest put on by Sorinex Strength Equipment. It was a awesome weekend and can’t thank Sorinex enough for having us. We had a amazing time! Here is a video of some of our work from the main stage on Friday.
