What are most inpiring workout videos you've seen? (most links NOT indicated "safe")

There are lots of great crossfit videos on the website. Many just show great form that we can learn from, but some are downright inspiring and make me want to get out there and lift heavier and stronger. I'm hoping we can collect many of those types of videos on one thread. What videos really inspire you?

(Please don't just say "go look at the crossfit website" because there are tons of videos on there, and lots of them aren't inspiring at all.)

Any links from youtube, affiliate websites, etc would be great to see!

Re: What are most inpiring workout videos you've seen?

Isn't the point of having a fantasy is being able to do it one day?

Why not go out and be inspired every workout when you left more than then previous lift, faster than the previous run....

Is there some sort of fitness porn fetish that needs to be fed?

I'll play, as I do have a bunch of YouTube video's stored for those "tough" days.

This is a classic, O-Lifting vid, many faces you should recognize. w/f/s

Re: What are most inpiring workout videos you've seen?

I didn't go to the Games, but the video of Khalipa finishing his C&J's really fires me up:

Also, not quite workout videos, but the David Goggins vids fire me up more than anything:

A couple other non-CrossFit videos that inspire/motivate me.

Maybe some of us are inspired by others' achievements?

There are many forms of inspiration. Video is just one of them. For example, college and professional sports teams will make highlight films or show movie clips to inspire their players. If they don't inspire you, that's fine, but they definitely get me and a lot of other folks pumped up.

Here's one that motivated me to work on my deadlift, even if it was a girl!

Seriously? Double underhand grip and dropped from the top...

Jodi Bainbridge deadlifting almost 3xBW is much better:

I've watched this one probably fifty times: Lunch Time O-Lifting With Burgener (WFS)

Re: What are most inpiring workout videos you've seen?

The Nasty Girls video was the original crossfit video that made me think something was seriously going on with this program. I just couldn't believe it.

Most anything with Nicole (especially her CFT and OHS w/ BW). Sweet, beautiful, and strong.


And lastly, Josh's King Kong. Holy smokes batman.


There are lots of course, but those few come to mind quickly.
