NBC Ninja Warrior shows feats of upper body strength

On Sunday night, NBC Sports presented a two hour NinjaWarrior special, USA vs. the World.

Men from various countries, including Japan, Finland, Italy and the US performed timed tumbling sequences requiring great upper body strength. In some sets, men lifted horizontal ladders above them and pushed them up.
40 year old Travis Rosen won by scaling the inside of a 77 foot tower, in 40 seconds.
The event took place outdoors in Las Vegas.

This was the sort of thing that was my own personal nemesis in Army Basic in 1968!  Doing the horizontal ladder. You needed "lesbian" arm and shoulder power.
