Let the Scientific Games Begin… ~ A Sneak Peek

Here’s a little sneak peek of today’s scientific games in the Human Performance Laboratory….

“A scientist in his laboratory is not a mere technician: he is also a child confronting natural phenomena that impress him as though they were fairy tales” ~ Marie Curie

I was poked, prodded, hooked up, weighed, measured and put through the paces.

They can find no body fat on my quadriceps ~ it’s all muscle she smiles. I can leg press 190kg’s and surprised myself by bench pressing 28kg’s ~ and I didn’t kill myself by bench press either (that alone is a huge accomplishment and I’m super impressed with myself for that). I didn’t fall flat on my face while attempting push-up’s (although I’m guessing I didn’t look very graceful!) and I kinda breezed through the sit-ups.

Getting fitted with the breathing apparatus ~ I was about to experience death by treadmill!

I had a fantastic two-some crowd cheering me on.

Then they nearly killed me on the treadmill!

But I survived.

I live to tell the tale.

However, tomorrow may be another story altogether!

Next up on Walking4Air, the full story of my triumphs and tribulations as a ‘Lab Rat’, plus photos for you to laugh at.

Stay tune!
