Not only has Brian Shaw won 4 Worlds Strongest Man titles, but he also has many world records in just about ever lift category imaginable. In order to perform the seemingly inhuman feats of strength that Shaw does on a regular basis, it takes a village. A village of both gym equipment and food. Most, if not all of this takes place at his home.

Bicyclists have a serious image problem. The perception among non-cyclists is that cyclists simply think the “rules of the road” don’t apply to them. “I don’t seek out confrontation but this guy stopped and looked like he wanted to have a conversation so I was happy to oblige. I wish > hadn’t raised my voice but something to different next time.” – Dashcam Driver.

Born in Texas, Jose Luis Sanchez joined the U.S Marine Corps in 2003. He was stationed around the world, with his last duty in Afghanistan.

Most recently, Sanchez founded the non-profit Rise Above Hardship to give back and motivate other Veterans and people of all ages through fitness.

This extraordinary 53 year old Dutch man may look like a serious badass but Juan Rekers does some very special fitness training for people with mental illness. He said: “When you grow older your body will change, decrease of Testosteron and an increase of estrogen damages your body! Less power, bigger belly and on and on!

The 1980s were an unusual time. And not just because of the gaudy, neon-influenced fashions, or the synth-heavy music. The movies were insane, as well. For every Indiana Jones movie, or instant classics like Back to the Future, we endured head-scratchingly bizarre films. Like Perfect, an aerobics-based romance starring John Travolta and Jamie Lee Curtis. Welp, I’m officially old. Because now I want to lobby to censor this material to protect others from its influence. Right after I masturbate.

We’ve talked about ego lifts, we’ve talked about gym pranks – but we’ve never spoken about something like this before. Many men in the gym want to be the boss of their domain by lifting the most weight, but people are saying that bodybuilder and powerlifter Brad Castleberry actually uses fake weights to look boss and gain a huge online following. What do you think?

A torn ligament in his left leg isn’t about to stop Greg Norman from getting in his intense workout sessions. The Shark tore an aponeurosis in his leg after an injury sustained in a casual tennis match three weeks ago, and was put in a cast to keep the muscle (likely his soleus) immobile for six weeks. But just because his leg was immobile didn’t mean Norman doesn’t still go Beast Mode. “Just had to improvise,” he said.

In a world driven by social media and radically publicised bouts of excess, there is no shortage of token millionaire ballers. Dan Bilzerian pioneered it with his overzealous showboating of assault rifles, naked women and private jets and today he’s getting some classier competition.
