Wacky Wednesday: The Smash Watermelons with Your Thighs Challenge [Video]
A couple of days ago, I saw this random video on social media. It was of a woman named Kortney Olson, who's a bodybuilder from Las Vegas, sitting on a big sheet of plastic and trying to smash watermelons with her thighs.
I don't know how she did it, but she did it. She smashed three big ole melons in just 7.63 seconds. WATCH!
How hilarious is that? By the way, 7.63 seconds is a new world record. And, yes! That means there was a previous world record, which was held by Olga Liashchuk. Olga's thighs were only good enough for 14.75 seconds.
Naturally, when I saw this video I knew that Angel and I had to try it for Wacky Wednesday. Obviously, neither one of us is aiming for a world record. But, both of us claim to have really powerful legs and thighs. Angel has birthed 75 kids. I can crack walnuts with my buttocks. We were convinced this challenge was made for us.
Here's how it played out!
You can catch Wacky Wednesdays each Wednesday morning on WBKR's Facebook page. We go live at 9am with a fun, interactive challenge that you can try at home with the kids or at a party with your adult friends.
Since we're on the subject of legs, here's another one you can try. By the way, this HURT!! And it was really difficult- way more so than it appeared.
We call this the Balls in the Basket Challenge.
And here's another one that will challenge your core strength. A couple of weeks ago, we tried the Fish Out of Water Challenge. Angel, miraculously, could do it. I couldn't. For that matter, I was so bad at it, I still don't know how she managed to do it. From my standpoint, this is humanly impossible. I looked like a crash test dummy after plowing into the wall (or floor).
