💨 WINDIEST TOUCH-TEST EVER with World Champ, Liv Cooke! | #PlayAnywhere 🇮🇸

💨 WINDIEST TOUCH-TEST EVER with World Champ, Liv Cooke! | #PlayAnywhere 🇮🇸


Welcome back to Episode 3 of Play Anywhere, and I’m here in Reykjavík, and it’s freezing, it’s windy, but it’s going to be a good one! Alright, let’s try again! Alright, so we are kicking things off with a road trip, and first up: Geysir! Let’s go. We have come to the geysers and, apparently, the water boils underneath the ground, so like over there, the water column collapses and superheating occurs, and then water flashes to steam in the pipe and the geyser erupts. And then that is when the water comes firing out of the ground and looks incredible, so I’m hoping I can go and see one. It nearly reached us! So, I’ve made it to Gullfoss Waterfalls, you can see it behind me, and it’s got windier! I didn’t think it was possible, but it has! Yeah, you want me to freestyle here? Yeah, give me the ball. Battling the elements! But we made it! Look at this place, this is absolutely incredible. To think this is on Earth! This is crazy. It’s a pity I can’t freestyle here though. Like, look at the floor. I think I’d break a leg. But it looks good though! I tell you what, though, it is hard to freestyle here, just because it’s so cold and windy. Can you hear the wind? You can see all the raindrops as well. I can’t feel my feet! And in fact, I can’t feel my hands either, or my face. Let’s get back in the car and head to the next place. We’re going to the lighthouse, and I’m going to try a touch test, because Jamie Redknapp, like I said, I’m coming for you! So, I’m here at Crossfit Reykjavík, and you will not believe who I’m here to meet. Two-times fittest woman in the world. I’m going to die. Tough session. Alright, Annie, jokes aside: I want to know three exercises you recommend for footballers. Ooh! Power clean, so some Olympic weightlifting, kettlebell swings, and let’s do some squats. So, we’re going to grab onto the bar, stand up and keep it close, touch here, get it up to your shoulders so you can drop underneath it, and stand up. Kind of? No? No. No. Right, I think I should just stick to tricks. This clearly isn’t a career for me, is it? So, kettlebell swing. It’s the same thing, explosiveness that we want to try to get out of it, and using our posterior chain. You want to stand with your feet about shoulder-width apart, you’re going to grab the kettlebell, pull it in, pop it up. Chest out, shoulderblades together, strong back. Yeah! Yeah? And squeeze. Yes, there you go! We’re going to do a dumbbell squat. While we’re doing the squat, we want to hang shoulder-width apart, and then I’m just going to sit straight down, trying to keep my chest up. Nice! Did you see that reaction? You surprised me, that was awesome! Get the weights up, resting it on the shoulders, and we’re going to make sure that we keep the elbows high, so that we can be as upright as possible when we go through the squat. Okay. Elbows here, stand straight, yes. And squat. Yeah! Exactly. I like this one. Alright, nice work, girl! Thank you! Fittest woman pending. Phew! All that exercise has made me work up an appetite. Let’s go and get something to eat. Hot dog time! Let’s go! What would you like on it? Yeah, everything, please. Perfect, thank you very much. Bon appétit. I know it’s not French. So, I’ve come across this rainbow in the middle of the city centre. It was painted here to celebrate gay pride, which they have every year. It looks pretty cool, so I kind of want to freestyle. We’re at Grotta Island Lighthouse, it is over there, there, that way, and it’s 23 metres high, so I’m going to try my touch test, on my journey to beating Jamie Redknapp’s record. Let’s go. So, as you can tell, the wind has picked up, this is going to be a very difficult touch test. You can see how close we are to the sea, so I’m going to have to kind of hurry up with this, because we’re a bit behind schedule, time is ticking, and that tide comes in, so we really haven’t got long for this. Maybe, like, three attempts maximum? Let’s try this! Alright… let’s try again! It was meant to be a straight ball drop! Oh, this is insane. Ready? I don’t know what we were thinking here. This is impossible. The height is fine, I think I could do the height. Like, looking at it, I think I got that. It’s the wind! You’re standing here, the ball’s coming, and next thing you know, it’s ten miles away! I don’t know about this. Oh, well. Jamie Redknapp, I’m still coming for you. Just not today. I’ll let you have a bit longer with your record. Alright, we’ve actually got to hurry up because the tide’s coming in, and we’re going to be stuck! So, we’ve had to just stop the attempts, which were pretty impossible anyway because of the wind, and we have to go. Look! Look at the tide! This is our path. This was our path to get back, so now, we have to go on the rocks. Right, let’s get off this island before I get stuck! Since it wasn’t possible to do the touch test at that lighthouse, I’m going to have to find another. I think I may have found one. What? Okay. Three, two, one… I’m only kidding, guys, it’s like two metres. So, that’s it, the Reykjavík trip has come to an end, and I’ve had an amazing time. Of course, trying the ball drop test, which didn’t really go as planned. Like, did you see the wind? I have never seen wind like it. And, of course, then, talking to Annie, that woman is insane. Two-times fittest woman in the world, and who knows? She may become three-times. But anyway, guys, don’t forget to like, comment, share and subscribe, and we’ll see you in the next one.
