A little while ago, Eddie Hall became the first man ever to deadlift 500 kg (1,102 lbs). So you’d thing bench pressing a couple of dudes would be pretty easy for him. Well, it looked a little too easy!
Andrew Jones jokes that he’s “the best looking zombie you’ll ever see.” The fitness model and body builder technically has no pulse, and has built an impressive physique on an artificial heart. Until he receives a donor match, he keeps a constant supply of batteries on him. Heart or no heart, he hasn’t let anything stop him from staying active and living the life he wants.
“I’ve got the right mindset, I’m staying active, and I think that’s the main thing,” Durbin said. “That’s what motivates me right now. I know I’ve got to get up and get out of that bed and get going. I’ve got a friend who’s got a little bit different type cancer than I do, but he does his chemo and that’s it, he’s sick for a week and can’t really do anything,” Durbin continued. “And I’ve determined that I’m not going to let it get me in that shape. I might not be able to do as much as I was doing, but I will be doing something!”
Just the fact she is playing outdoors is odd enough in today’s society but hammering through that obstacle course left me super impressed. She’ll learn critical thinking, problem solving and physical coordination all while having fun. This girl is going to grow up into a strong and fearless young lady. She will be a survivor with the zombies hit, you can bet the farm.
Former pro football player David Vobora gave up a lucrative career in private fitness to work with wounded warriors. His workouts have brought them new strength and inspiration. What Vobora is doing is as honourable as serving in the military. “He could do whatever he wants,” Trimble says. “He’s young, fit, capable, and yet he has chosen to do this for us. That’s patriotism.”
In the black-and-white footage, the 32-year-old threw down a series of impressive strikes during a kickboxing session with his personal trainer Luke Zocchi. People online were quick to comment: “I teach Muay Thai. He looks like he looks like an athletic gifted student that has never actually fought. His punches and his kicks look crisp but they do not account for defence. If you were able to slip one of his Jabs you would have a wide open shot. I would say that if he picked up sparring he would do really well.” Punk verse Thor for the Celebrity Division Belt at 205 anyone?
The most popular commuter complaint about sharing the road with bicycles can be boiled down to the basic: “they’re too slow.” Think again, this 50mph mountain drive is no cakewalk. A group motorcycle ride is cruising down a mountain highway near San Diego when suddenly, a hard pedalling cyclist appears out of nowhere and passes them!
The 32-year-old stuntwoman, wowed viewers by completing a top-speed qualifying run in a Wonder Woman outfit, expertly navigating the Log Grip, Propeller Bar, Jumping Spider and Warped Wall (translation: should-be-impossible obstacles). And she had 12 seconds to spare. I want to be like her when I grow up.
If someone tells you strongman is all about slow, raw strength, show this video to kindly correct them. While competing at the 2016 World’s Strongest Man in Botswana, Icelandic strongman Hafthor Bjornsson set a new keg toss World Record. Bjornsson launched a 15kg keg over a 7.15 meter bar, beating his own record mark from earlier this year. Explosion, height, speed, strength, timing, combine them all into a towering 6’9″ frame, and you’ve Thor.
Bakhar Nabieva is a must follow if you don’t already. This Ukrainian smokeshow has a body that makes the most confident men stutter, and a gorgeous face to complete the package. If Joe Rogan approves, you know it’s good.
