Anyone watching this show? Not real hard hitting, but it's an enjoyable watch if you're into lifting heavy things IMO. I could do without the manufactured drama and plotlines that go with every "reality" show, but it's a good lay in the basement and watch it type show.

At the least, it's inspired me to get back to lifting a little heavier.

I'll have to check this out. I've been lifting heavier based on some research done and also just seeing what's working for our kids as we've had a good year in the weight room. This is not impressive at all, I know, but I finished today's bench workout with a set of 4 reps at 230. Heavier than I've been able to do in years.

Yeah. I love documentaries about strength, exercise, bodybuilding...all that stuff. I find it fascinating. I have not seen "Strongest Man in History" yet but I need to check it out.

Some recent documentaries in this genre that are really good:

"Westside vs. The World"
"Legends of Strength"
"Eddie Strongman"
"Born Strong"
"Generation Iron" (3 parts)

It's a fun, light hearted watch. It did inspire me to see if I could flip a hay bale over. I think I can. It was at my son's camp last week and wasn't my hay, so I didn't attempt to fully flip it, but I got it about halfway.

Luckily it was off to the very side of the place they had camp, so it wasn't like I was LeBronning his camp.

New doc on Amazon called "The Heavies" about the Highland Games. It features Americans Daniel McKim (who has a hilarious Twitter account) and Matt Vincent who were two of the top Highland competitors in the world a few years back.

Really good!

So let me get this straight, this dude is sponsored by Little Debbie? I love the daily inspirational quotes with a Little Debbie twist.

Life is a construction zone - you’re either building or tearing down. Today, build ... up your pantry with Swiss Rolls.

On his personal website, he has protein shake recipes that include Little Debbie snack cakes as an ingredient. 😆

The amount of calories these folks take in is astounding.

I do wish the sport was a little cleaner, but that is a personal opinion that is likely in the minority.
