    That's Erik Kando. His physical facility has less to do with his size -- I don't think he's "so small" -- rather, he's exceptionally strong and quite fearless.

      ahh, what it must be like to be a para?
      Life's perceived journey in this PMR is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting "holy **** what a VR ride!"

        I'm a T3 and there's no way I'll be climbing a rope and doing chin ups. I'm more impressed on how his pants stay up. mad skillz there.

          Wow, that is amazing. I like the way he bench pressed. Perfect form.

              i still think hes partially that mobile tranfering due to his smallish size. i say 145 max. great stuff nonetheless.

                Sure, and many paras could do this, but one can do most of these exercises in one exercise equipment, don’t see the purpose of him bouncing up and down on his butt and knee joints.

                  Thanks for sharing this. Robbie is also a T4 and somewhat thin, he is tall though, about 5' 10 with long legs. He is getting close to his 1 year anniversary. He works hard at the gym 3x week besides his FES bike and stander he does a lot of lifting and presses. I can see his arms getting bigger and muscular. This is a great video for him, very inspiring!
