This is what strong looks like ...



Did you hear?  Claudia Nystad is back in training, aiming for the Sochi Olympics.  Here's what she has to say about that:

Elbows in and back let loose... can someone show me how? .... I wipe my brow and I sweat my rust... and still waiting for the improvement. 

In that vein, I saw a great video about measuring strength and flexibility:



So now I know I have plenty of flexbility, but negligible strength, especially compared to that guy in his underwear.

But I knew that already, so I found this video about getting stronger.  I'm positive Brad and Kent can do all of these things, but I found each exercise just more and more incredible until I was laughing out loud in amazement by the end of it:



Still, there are plenty of good ideas in there that could be dumbed down to human levels.

Finally, for a little eye candy, here is Andy Newell doing his own strength workout, complete with artistic lighting and moody expressions and chiseled abs.



Summer is the time to get strong ... who's in?  What's your favorite workout?
