Brian Shaw Height

I know I'm big. I've been big my whole life. I've never had to prove how tough I am.

American professional strongman, Brian Shaw is known for competing in and winning the 2011, 2013, 2015, and 2016 World's Strongest Man competitions.

It goes without saying that Brian Shaw is a big bruiser of a man. But how big is he exactly? Well, mind-bogglingly big -- he weighs around a hefty 385 - 440 lb (175–200 kg) -- most of which is hard-earned muscles.

His biceps size is 23.5 inches -- and to think that most people will never be able to touch 18 inches no matter how hard to try. Brian's chest measures a whopping 60 inches.

Inside Brian Shaw's Strong Height

Where his height is concerned, Brian Shaw may not look that tall if standing by himself. Because he is so thick -- he looks like a dwarf.

It is only when he is standing with other people you realize what a giant of a man he truly is -- big as a boulder.

Brian Shaw's official height is 6 feet 8 inches. He may be very well that tall in the morning. But carrying that much bulk takes a toll on one's body. If nothing it compresses your spine and makes you shorter as the day wears on.

When he is standing with other big people like Robert Oberst (6'5½"), and Hafthor Julius Bjornsson (6'8"), we think Brian looks just a bit under his official height.

Here are some of Brian Shaw's strongest quotes.

Being the strongest man in the world.

If you're the strongest man on the planet, you ought to be able to pick up a stone or flip a tire.

His motivation.

My motivation is to be the best. Pretty simple and straightforward.

How to eat many eggs.

One thing that I've learned over the years with eggs is that you don't want to cook them too long. You want to make sure they're still soft because, in a big quantity, they're easier to eat if they're a little bit softer.

On his diet.

I'm just eating to be the strongest human being on the planet.

On functional strength.

I'm a fan of functional strength.

On getting dressed up.

I really don't like getting dressed up. It's a lot more comfortable to be in some type of T-shirt or dry-fit shirt and shorts. That's pretty much my typical attire.

His fascination.

I've always been fascinated by different feats of strength throughout history.

What is not the hard part?

People think the training is the hard part, it's not really. That's fun, I can get loose and do what I want to do. I only get to train for a few hours, maybe during the day.

What is the hard part?

Eating is the hard part. It's constant - you don't ever stop from the time you wake up you eat until you go to bed. Then I wake up in the morning and the first thing I do is eat and do it all day again.

His sanctuary.

The weight room has always been a place for me where I could go to be relaxed. It's my sanctuary of sorts.

Being addicted to...

I started lifting heavy weights and became addicted to it and before I knew it I won the title of the world's strongest man which is very cool.

Being a strongman is...

Being a strongman is a real test of functional strength. What can you pick up, and carry and how fast can you move it. It's not a weight room strength, it takes brute strength and power to lift, carry and pull all types of objects from fire engines, Mack trucks, transport planes, and large stones.

How to develop strength without a gym.

You don't need a gym to develop real strength. Just get an empty keg of beer and fill it with sand or water and simply pick it up, carry it in your backyard, flip it, anything just to get moving for as little as 15 minutes.

His main source of protein.

I eat a lot of grass-fed beef. That's my main protein source. But I'll substitute in chicken and turkey, and sometimes fish, to have a little bit of variety.
