Akbar just can’t handle this Ninja’s skills

Sarah Schoback blew his mind with her 1⁄4 inch ledge pull-ups.

$100 challenge to Sarah Ninja of the North Schoback if she can do a pull-up on a 1/4 inch ledge at Obstacle Academy. Oh hell naw!

Akbar Gbajabiamila, co-host of American Ninja Warrior, has promised he’s going to try the course in season 10. That means he needs to kick his training into gear!

Akbar stopped by the Obstacle Academy near Minneapolis, MN, to get some work in with Sarah Schoback. Sarah is the owner of the gym and she also ran the course in Kansas City last season.

Basically, her skills boggled Akbar’s mind. He promised her $100 if she could do a pull-up on a 14 inch ledge. That’s TINY. Well, Sarah did three of them.

This was Akbar’s face when he saw it.

He then gave it an honest try himself and experienced the move’s insane difficulty.

Sarah’s grip strength is on point for season 10! It’s fitting Akbar stopped by her gym, since Minneapolis will be a brand new filming location for the show later this year. Seems like maybe Akbar should give that Qualifying course a try!
