“He is almost inhumanly strong.”

What is it with Harvard business school professors? There’s the Bionic Man (currently in trouble for a spot of public aggression); and now there’s Mr Nipples (watch the film).

Lauren’s a kind of nerd Superman:

He was cocaptain of the Waverly High School football team, changing uniforms at halftime to play tuba in the band.

At the gym:

During a workout on a recent Friday afternoon at Total Performance Sports, his T-shirt and shorts were stained with sweat and the white chalk he uses to help him grip weights. Blood trickled from old leg wounds reopened by deadlifting a heavy bar across the space between his ankles and knees.

That which does not kill me!

His wife:

He weighs about 200 pounds, but overall his physique is not particularly imposing – especially for someone who can flip an 800-pound truck tire end over end for 100 feet. In fact, his wife said that when she first met him, she thought he was merely “fat.’’
