Brian Yersky - Gunning for Glory

The 2012 National Overall Champ's Arm Workout

“I’d love to be the biggest guy on stage five years down the road but still be in the shape I was at Nationals. But for now, if I can get to 262 to 265, I’m not going to complain. At this point, I have to hang my hat on conditioning.”
