Strongman Duo Chop and Steele

Episode 263,   Aug 09, 2023, 11:30 AM

Are you ready to get buff? Boy, have you come to the right place!

In this episode, we learn from the VERY REAL strongman duo, Chop and Steele. They’ll lead you through workouts you’ve probably never heard of… like chopping twigs in half! Wanna work those legs? Try stomping on an Easter basket! When you’re really ready to get your pump on, fill a jug with some leftover turbo gravy. Do a few reps. You’ll definitely feel the burn! (What’s turbo gravy, you ask? What a weird question! You’ve obviously never heard of Chef Keith Guerke.)

… are you starting to think that these guys aren’t the real deal? Well, that probably means you’re smarter than the morning news anchors who invited Chop and Steele on air.

And now for a note about our process. For this episode, Kristin read a bunch of articles, then spat them back out in her very limited vocabulary. We owe a huge debt of gratitude to the real experts who covered these cases.
