We like this highlight video of Kazushi Sakuraba, one of the greates mixed martial artists ever. Sakuraba is known for beating members of the Gracie family left and right at a time, when not many found a way to overcome brazilian-jiu-jitsu.

As Mike used to say: Enjoy objectively!
Ever tried doing push-ups on medicine balls or a stability ball? I do mine on ~20cm “pilates balls”. If you’ve ever done some, you know that they’re a lot more demanding than normal pushups. If not, you should try some and then watch this Clip of a woman doing 61 push-ups on 3 medicine balls in 60 seconds:
