Hey everybody.  Check out Nat Geo at 10 EST tonight (4/22/13) for the show, The Numbers Game.  I am on the episode called "When Will You Die."

 

Also, if you are an early riser, there are plenty of other times to catch the show.  Here are the listings:  Nat Geo Page

 

No idea what all will be on there, but I did a lot of classic strongman feats for them when we filmed.  So it will be cool to watch.

just caught your segment on TV Jedd... way to represent bro! made that phonebook look like a joke

 

 

seriously though, i tried to watch it from the perspective of the average guy who has never heard of grip training... and i definitely can see some eyes being opened up thanks to your ambassadorship

Hey everyone, thanks a lot.  I tried to bring some Napalm out for the show.

 

It was surprisingly tough to bend the horseshoe while standing in sand.  Might be a good progression method for some of you hardcore shoe benders - HA!

 

I was very impressed with how they put it together.  We shot for about an hour and a half, and there was so much footage, I had no idea what they were going to do with it.

 

Thanks a lot again everyone, and if you could not catch it, this link shows when it will be broadcast again:  http://channel.natio.../episode-guide/

Jedd- I was lucky enough to catch the episode last night.  Nice job.  The only disappointment is that he tore some cards at the end of your segment and he called it a "trick" that you showed him.  A great ending to your segment would have been you shaking his hand, clotheslining him, then after he got up, a suplex into the sand!  Then you could have told him that you just five years off his life expectancy for calling your card tearing a "trick!"  All kidding aside, it looks like you had fun, and you came across well.
