Lucha Libre making mischief in Mexico on BODY HACK
Next Week On Body Hack: Lucha Libre Making Mischief In Mexico.
Our bodies are designed to adapt and survive almost anything, but it’s our ability to rise every time we fall that defines our resilience.
According to science, only 30% of resilience is genetic. Toughness is a learned skill and Mexico’s Lucha Libre wrestlers are some of the toughest people on the planet.
Lucha Libre is part theatre, part sport and full on spectacle. Todd’s trainer is Cassandro - Mexico’s first openly gay Luchadore. Cassandro has endured physical, emotional and substance abuse since his early teens, overcoming prejudice and adversity to rise to the top of his macho-male dominated sport and become a national hero.
In this episode, Todd learns the hard way how we can all deal better with adversity, fear and injury. Grab a Corona and your amigos for a night in the wresting ring!
Todd Sampson’s Body Hack is an Essential Media production for Network 10 with production investment from Screen Australia in association with Create NSW.
