Bench Press, Squats and Tire flips

I watched yet another exercise video yesterday. It was a video of people doing barbell bench press, squats, tire flips (you've done those, right?), box jumps and slamming weighted balls against a wall. I have seen those exercises dozens of times. This video was different. This time the man performing the barbell bench press had only one arm. The guy doing weighted squats had no arms. The weight was suspended from a chain around his neck. Men and women with weighted balls were lined up close to a wall in wheel chairs slamming the balls against the wall. The one doing tire flips was wheel chair bound also. One guy with one leg did box jumps. It was a pretty tall box. He did not fail!  No excuses here!
