Shane: The Not-Thin Man
I had the great pleasure of working with two-time Olympian, Shane Hammond a few weeks ago. He is one of the most humble, affable elite athletes I have ever known. And grocery shopping with Shane is a complete riot.
Shane is built to lift. Maybe 5' 8" and well over 300 lbs, he has the long torso and short femur/tibia combo that are the dream of every weightlifting coach. Both Sage and I have longer femurs than this dude. And he's not just strong; he's also powerful and flexible. Take a gander at the calf musculature and squat positions.
