American Ninja Warrior - Training


Recommended Posts

I'm not sure I ever want to be on TV, but the original Ninja Warrior is the reason I got into bodyweight training.  That level of control, combined with the strength and flexibility the competitors demonstrate, while being endlessly positive and supportive is the ideal I'm working towards.

 

If I can ever manage to stick with a program long enough to get there, maybe I'll try out though. :P

Maxim 70: Failure is not an option. It is mandatory. The option is whether or not to let failure be the last thing you do.

Same. Back when it was Sasuke everyone was telling me to send an audition video, but I never got around to it for some reason. Now it's becoming a lot more specialized and those obstacles are getting way too crazy.

Not to mention, if you're not picked from your video audition you have to wait for days if not weeks now in the dreaded walk-on line. 

 

It is on my pie in the sky dream list though (that and the World Series of Poker main event).

I feel like it's turned into all the other talent shows where you need a moving background story in order to be selected.

Captain Hammer: Have I seen you at the gym?

Billy: [smiles] At the gym!

Captain Hammer: [to himself] I don't go to the gym, I'm just naturally like this...
