It doesn't really look that hard. I may give it at try.

Eddie claims to have pulled 480kg in training and is playing the game of only breaking the record 1kg at a time.
I'd say on the bottom of that self-actualisation pyramid shit, proper decent coffee is in there with wifi, tits, food and shelter

I don't have a lot of experience with vampires, but I have hunted werewolves. I shot one once, but by the time I got to it, it had turned back into my neighbor's dog.

You'd better have a huge subtotal going into the deadlift against Tom Martin, or you're losing.

Fans might not know the identity of the older man in the Angels uniform observing workouts and games at the minor league complex, but Bobby Knoop is there just about every day that school is in session for the youngest of the Angels farmhands.

The 78-year-old former big league second baseman and major league coach watches workouts and games from his ubiquitous lawn chair, perched behind the fence on one of the complex fields. Here he can get a good view of what’s happening on the field, occasionally taking breaks between innings to work on the crossword puzzle from the daily newspaper. At times, he’ll head to a side field to hit fungoes and give individual instruction to infielders. During the Arizona League season or when there’s an extended spring training game in Tempe Diablo Stadium, he settles into a seat on the concourse level, where he gets a bird’s eye view of the field.

Bottom line—if there’s baseball happening at the Angels minor league complex, Knoop is likely nearby [...]

At 78, Knoop shows no signs of slowing down. When told that he’s in good shape for his age, Knoop chuckled and then said, “I’m not really certain that I’m in good physical shape. But I like to use the expression that my father used—I’m in great shape for the shape I’m in . . . When you’re active as an athlete and you start to lose your mobility—your ability to move and to have quick reactions—it bothers you a little bit.”

Considering that his father lived to 101, Knoop should be able to stay around the game for as long as he wants. He points to the example of former Angels coach Jimmie Reese, who worked with the big league team into his 90s.

“I’ll do it as long as I feel I’m physically capable and mentally capable,” Knoop said,” and as long as they want me to. They’ll let me know when they’ve had enough.”

But why not take it easy and enjoy some retirement years, especially considering he’s outside in the brutal Arizona heat nearly every day?

“I suppose basically it’s all I’ve ever done, really,” Knoop said. “I don’t like being indoors. It’s kind of rejuvenating to be able to work with younger people on a daily basis. I have civilian friends, but basically the people I associate with are baseball people.”

Alex Honnold free-soloing El Capitan definitely is one of the greatest athletic feats of all time. Four hours of climbing at the highest level, no protection. The mental toughness is mind-boggling.

This is just a short climb, but about as difficult as the full 3000' of vertical he did. May need to click the link rather than the embed.

He put it all on the line.

My mind went to, "If he fell, wonder what he would think on the (long) way down?"

Are full of passionate intensity.
