The Hard Way w/ Joe De Sena

“Usually, everything that I’ve done, someone’s probably done before me, and I would like to be the person that sets the bar for the next one. I know, every time I put a weight on my back, that somebody has lifted that before. I’m not the first person. And I know that if I set the world record in it, someone’s going to break it. So I better set it high,” says Hunter McIntyre, the Bulk Pony, 6x OCR World Champion, 4x OCR National Champion, Tough Mudder X Undefeated Champion 2017-2018.
