"I'm Not Ready . . ." by Randall J. Strossen, Ph.D. | ?2006 IronMind
?I?m not ready for the Arnold,? Mariusz told IronMind, ?because I have been too busy, doing too much work.?
Widely in demand for exhibitions and seminars, Mariusz Pudzianowski is coming off a hectic schedule and he explained that he does not want to come to the Arnold in less than top condition. ?I am the world champion,? said the three-time MET-Rx World?s Strongest Man winner, ?so I must come into a contest ready at 100%, not 75% like in China last year.?
Mariusz said that he is training hard now, preparing for the World Strongman Cup contest in Iran next month.
I think the 75% thing sounds like a backhand at phil phister, and it strikes me as weird that he wouldn't be prepared for one of the biggest shows of the year.
