Samir Trains his Strength like Ancient Greek Athlete Milo of Croton


Late last year, Samir stunned the world with his extremely dangerous 3-mile (5K) 200 lb weighted vest walk around Memorial Park in Houston, TX. It was even highlighted in HuffPost, Fox News, CBS, and many other media globally.

Now, he is bringing this dangerous task to the next level by preparing himself for a 5-mile brisk walk with the same 200-lb weighted vest. Considering that he only weighs 190 lbs, this is more than double his weight! Preparations for this extremely unique and challenging endeavor will begin August 1st. As far as we know, no-one in the world in the modern era has ever done this stunt before.

There is a single person, Milo of Croton, a 6th-century BC wrestler and athlete from the Magna Graecian city of Croton who won six Olympic laurels by using unorthodox methods to gain strength. According to history,  Milo took a new born calf and carried it around Croton day after day, week after week, and month after month.  As the calf grew, so did Milo’s strength, until he was the strongest wrestler in Greece and could carry the now full grown bull upon his back. It is said that Milo of Croton’s training method was inspired by Hercules, son of Zeus.

Samir is not training with a living calf, and waiting for the calf to grow patiently, but instead, he is using the same system to gain strength. He is periodically increasing the amount of weights on his body and wearing them for most of the day.

Legend says that once Milo acheived his desired strength, he ate the bull. Samir promises you that he will not eat his iron-filled weight vest!
