This video has been knocking around for just over a week now, but it’s arguably one of the most insane balance/ strength training obstacle courses we’ve ever seen. Swiss freestyle skier and Olympic hopeful Andri Ragettli uploaded his parkour-inspired training regimen to his Instagram titled ‘Road to the Olympics!’ and already it’s clocked nearly 150K views, and a further 180K views on Youtube.
Possibly bordering on, as teenage girls would say, being a little bit ‘extra’, this isn’t really something that you can assemble at your local FitnessFirst without the staff coming over and telling you to knock it off. All keen skiers and snowboarders know that staying in peak performance condition in the off season is important, which is why so many athletes cross train with surfing, mountain biking and pretty gruelling gym regimes when the snow is absent. But this just goes above and beyond.
Nonetheless, mad props to Andri who clearly has calves and hamstrings made of absolute fucking iron. Good luck on the road to the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympics, homie!
