after graduating when he began entering strong man competitions and only seven months after that when he joined the professional ranks.

At 6 feet 8 inches and 390 pounds, Brian has to eat around 10,000 calories a day to maintain body mass. Much of that is complex carbs and lean protein, not pizza and junk food. On a typical day he eats two or three pounds of meat, a dozen eggs, a pound of whole wheat pasta or rice, a few peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, two or three yams or potatoes, five protein shakes, and a gallon of milk. Brian's favorite event in the strongman competition is the truck pull. He routinely pulls 30-ton fire engines in the parking lot of his hometown, Fort Lupton, Colo. Brian is excited about his career as a strongman and hopes one day to be known as the World's Strongest Man...ever.
