Tonight the games begin, as the flame will be lit in in the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony. The Olympics showcase some of the world’s most talented athletes – people in almost unbelievable physical condition. Watching them compete every two years is awe-inspiring, as their feats of strength, endurance, and agility raise them to the level of superhuman in the eyes of many.

Seriously, hardcore athletes are hardcore. As a reminder of that fact, check out this guy, who gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “power through it.”

[Warning, it’s a bit gross]

On one hand, this is an incredible display of the limits a true athlete can break through if they put everything they have into it.

On the other hand, maybe vomiting profusely is a sign that you probably shouldn’t be doing this to your body.

    I’m 50 yrs old. I’ve spent a fair amount of time in the gym and followed the typical weight lifting routines. I’ve come to believe very strongly that the workout procedures that you are using are wrong. The body need a dynamic workout. No machines ! The movements are too repetitive..too structured. The movements follow a static set line. Also the weights are too heavy. Things like stair climbing, rockwall climbing, chopping wood or pounding old tires with sledgehammers, climbing rope ladders, pullups, punch a heavybag….dynamic motions that use every muscle in one’s body. Keep dumbbells under 35# to prevent joint damage. This will also your speed up…and speed trumps strength.
