It’s easy to find excuses to not train, but you won’t want an excuse after watching these epic humans. You only live once, you may as well taring hard and get ripped!
“Although I don’t remember it, I landed on my back, and hit the back of my Giro helmet, which probably saved me from serious brain injury. Although I had a mild concussion with a bit of memory loss around the event, I am very grateful to have escaped feeling only a little banged up. Also, thank you very much to the folks who stopped to help.” – Silas Patlove
Researchers at King’s College London, in the United Kingdom believe exercise can slow the ageing process. Their study compared participant’s telomeres – sequences of DNA found at the end of a chromosome that protect chromosomes from damage. Telomeres get shorter and can’t play their role of protector as well as people continue to age and cells die off. Shorter telomeres mean older, more tired cells. However, the telomeres of participants who exercised more in their leisure time were longer than the telomeres of people who didn’t get as much physical activity. That led researchers to conclude that people who exercise regularly are biologically younger than those who are sedentary.
Forget the Ironman, Strongman, and bodybuilding competitions, this is the Street Workout World Championships, and it has to be the most interesting strength competition in the world.

Buakaw Banchamek is a 32 year old superstar Thai boxer 32 years, and today he is showing us how he trains to be hit in the stomach. He contracts his abdominal muscles and receives several punches from a young boxer. Buakaw Banchamek began his career at the tender age of 8 years old, so the dude’s an O.G. A few inches lower and he’d be singing a different note though.
Solid stuff mate. He’s avoiding the vicious “I need to exercise, but I’m too fat to exercise” problem that traps a lot of people. Also, the extra body mass probably teaches you good discipline for your landings. Any skater worth his ‘weight’ won’t give two f**ks if you’re legitimately trying. It’s like seeing a fat guy at the gym, you’re happy they’re there trying to better themselves. Same thing with skating. Respect.
