The human body is engineered for strength
, power and endurance. Bone is sturdy as concrete but flexible enough to resist breaking and light enough to allow us to be quicker off the mark than a racehorse. Our muscles, ligaments and joints have far greater strength
and endurance than we know. In this episode, we feature extraordinary tales of human strength
told with stunning see-through anatomy in motion. - A young man is sucked up into a tornado, only to be spat out a quarter of a mile away, unharmed ; Pinned by a massive boulder, a climber finds the strength
to lift it off in a seemingly impossible muscular feat ; A college football player sustains what would normally be unbearable injury and pain, yet has the mental stamina to continue playing at full output. Plus, how does a swimmer tap the remnants of our distant ancestors extraordinary stamina to swim across the English Channel in 14 hours? How do marathon runners keep the pace on their grueling 26-mile run?
