Olympic Skier Demonstrates His Incredible Balance-Oriented Parkour Workout

September 13, 2017

This is a video of 19-year old Swiss skier Andri Ragettli tackling a balance-based obstacle course while training for the 2018 Winter Olympics, which will take place at Santa's workshop at the North Pole, weather permitting. Man -- has this guy got some balancing skills or what? I bet he can walk back and forth across a parking curb easy. Some of those obstacles were intense. Now I'm not saying I could easily do it all just as good or better, but I did fall out of my chair and sprain my ankle just watching. "Has anybody seen my Lean Cuisine? It was in the breakroom freezer." Yeah -- it's my ice-pack now, Phil, shut up. "But--" But nothing, skipping lunch is the Leanest Cuisine, you should be thanking me.

Keep going for the video while I edit skis onto Andri in post-production the same way somebody always gives the characters in non-Star Wars fight scenes lightsabers.

Thanks to Nubnub, who may or may not be an Ewok, or at least familiar with the language.

    I can do... some of those things. Like... uh... well... hmm... Oh! Right at 0:41 when he walks over those pads. I can do that.

    I've walked back and forth a few curbs in my life. It's hard to do it without tripping with the police cruiser lights shining in your eyes

  • Now do it in one of those blow-up Tyrannosaurus costumes.

    More proof that a well balanced meal is very important.

    At first I thought he was doing the course in Adidas flip flops. Still impressive.
