The NEW World’s Strongest Man (with Mitchell Hooper) – Fitnessnacks

Today, we’re talking to the NEW World’s Strongest Man, Mitchell Hooper. Mitchell is actually joining the podcast for a second time! He’s the first Canadian athlete to ever hold the title of World’s Strongest Man, and he did it in a Finals packed with former champions. Did we mention it’s only his SECOND year as a pro strongman?

Mitchell updates us on 24 hours in the life of a new World’s Strongest Man, along with how his goals and outlook on the sport have shifted since we last chatted. He also talks about getting back to his day job — yes, he has a full time job outside of strongman! — and the media circus that started right after he hoisted the famous trophy.
