    Awesome, Ross is very fit. And those ab wheels were sick, all the way down and snapped it back up. Stong core for sure.

    Wow. I have never been able to do that, and I was once a self-proclaimed ab monster. Wow, again.

    Reminds me of a teacher I once had who used to be a Pro Boxer, he could do hand-clap push-ups (where you push up so hard you pop into the air and clap) but he could thrust himself with his arms hard enough to stand entirely upright. Sick.

    Hahah yeah no shit, that guy did some fairly impressive stuff.

    I especially liked his push-ups with the blocks, I'd seen those before, but never such an apt demonstration. Thanks for the video, and keeping us on our toes with whacky training ideas Urban.

    I like the push ups over the blocks as well, although I have always done them on a medecine ball, and
    those damn ab wheels are hard work

    I added those plyo pushups on a med ball a few months ago, and they are by far my favorite. If you want to do an ab exercise that is very similar, but not as hard you can try these, I think they're called Swiss ball body pulls. Start in a plank position arms straight, with your ankles on the ball, push back and roll the ball up to your thighs and touch your head to the ground while still keeping your arms straight in front of you. Now, roll back to the original position, but this time keep going and roll into a pike position with your butt up in the air. Then roll back and touch your head again. It really works the abs, but not as torturous as that little evil wheel.

    I actually tried some plyometric push ups for the first time there so I could form some kind of personal reference point.

    Haha, Jesus. It makes the vid even more impressive.
