Obstacle Lab: Balance Tank Training!

The Balance Tank is a classic Ninja Warrior/Sasuke obstacle that's existed since 2002. Even though neither Sasuke or American Ninja Warrior uses the obstacle anymore, it's still commonly seen in ninja gyms around the world. Many of these gyms use big spools used for electrical cabling.

It just so happens that I work for an electrical company. And they were literally giving these spools away! How could I say no to a deal like that?

Obstacle Lab: I Rebuilt My Destroyed Obstacle! (Heavenly Traverse)

One year ago, I destroyed the original version of my custom built Heavenly Traverse in a video because I made it out of wood and it broke. Now, the Heavenly Traverse has upgraded to metal and should not break under my own weight!

...I hope.

Anyway, for the inaugural episode of Obstacle Lab, join me as I test myself to see how many laps I can do on the Heavenly Traverse before I tire out. Hopefully I can beat my personal record!
