Brian Alsruhe & Alan Thrall | PowerCast #191

The aggressively squared-jawed strongman competitor, Brian Alsruhe and local strongman competitor/gym owner (and tall garden gnome), Alan Thrall, bring their bromance to the show. Brian has his own gym, NEVERSate Athletics in Westminster, Maryland, and is working hard toward his lightweight strongman pro card. Coming from a martial arts background, Brian was drawn to strongman after the death of his friend and World’s Strongest Man competitor, Mike Jenkins.

We kick the show off talking about how internet forums shaped the strength world way back in the late 90s and early 2000’s.

You can find Brian at @neversate on social media,, and at You can find Alan at @untamedstrength, and
