Bodyhack is extreme adventure at its finest.
If you’ve ever wonder what goes on behind the scenes of MMA or Bollywood movies then this show is for you. I found it very interesting and deeply detailed. Todd uses science to explain what happens to his body as it is happening. He is clever and insane. He goes to the ultimate lengths to really test his body and his endurance. All I can say is that he is either incredibly brave or stupid. Indeed, who would jump into a professional MMA fight with only 10 days of training? Todd Sampson is incredible and his show is very entertaining to watch.
