For the better part of his NHL career, Zdeno Chara has been known as one of the fittest and strongest guys in the league.
His dedication to being in prime shape is one of the things that has allowed him to remain effective into his 40s.
So yeah, you know Chara is in great shape, but then you see something like this:
I really enjoy working hard in the gym where you are not afraid to sweat or bleed ,where pains become part of who you are ,where you consistently have to earn it everyday, hungry to be better. No shortcuts ! No excuses! No BS ! #dukla#hardwork#grind#grit#sweat#funtimes ————————————————————— Rád si užívam tvrdý tréning v gym kde sa nemusíš báť sa spotiť ba niekedy aj do krvi ,kde sa bolesť stane súčasťou toho kým si,kde si to sústavne dokazuješ každý deň ,byt lepším. Žiadne ukrátenia! Žiadne výhovorky! Žiadne klamstvá ! #dukla#tvrdápraca#drina#zabava
The man is a monster!
That's 250+ pounds of Slovak power jumping one-legged over a hurdle, which is probably somewhere between 3-4 feet high.
That's ignoring the other jumps, which are equally impressive.
Seeing Chara's commitment to fitness is great, as it's something that can surely rub off on the young guys.
But here's the real question: how injured would you get if you tried this workout?
I tore a few muscles just thinking about it...
