  • ChicagoBoyz Physical Fitness Series Continued…

    Posted by Dan from Madison on April 28th, 2008 (All posts by )

    We have seen several examples in our physical fitness series that show the prowess of various ChicagoBoyz bloggers in the areas of strength, speed and power. But two aspects of the total physical fitness package that are overlooked at times (but are no less important than the others) are balance and agility. In this video, Jonathan on a recent vacation to Spain shows us what I am talking about.

    For those interested here is the wiki on the site in the video.
    H/T to Lou.

      Just a tip. Before taking one of these walks I often bolster myself with two or three beers and one of my special egg-salad sandwiches with Mrs. T’s horseradish. This improves my balance greatly.

      I don’t think of myself as an acrophobe, but certain parts of my anatomy attempted to withdraw inside my body several times while I was watching that.

    3. Dan from Madison Says:

      Jay – it is one of the most crazy videos I have ever seen. There are others on youtube of this as well, but this one is the best by far.

    4. Tyouth Says:

      My adrenaline is flowing, I think I must have a touch of vertigo.

      I followed the link to wiki – somebody in the picture there shows a hiker on one of the beams and he/she is wearing, I think, sandals!

    5. Dan from Madison Says:

      Correct you are Tyouth. You should pop that photo up in the super enlarged format for better deatil too – yikes.

    6. Carl from Chicago Says:

      This is a very crazy video

      What, on foot, not on a bike? Yeah, Jon, what years do to a man…

      re: vertigo: I closed my eyes while watching couple of times. I think that path is a memorial to a Civil War. And that painted-over graffiti next to the word solo says “Papa Hemingway was here”.

      WOW, WOW, WOW.

      How many bodies are sucessfully retrieved in a year?

      You need to put this on YouTube.
