UncleSamPatriot: From Bed to Punch

Pekka “UncleSamPatriot” Luodeslampi a Finnish Christian online preacher and Youtube video maker has central nervous system developmental disorder which caused him to get so sick that he could stay out of the bed only 20 minutes per time and then back to rest and then back up again, a practically bed patient.

But people were praying for him to Lord Jesus Christ, himself included and he started to recover, lessening of medication and hard training. Now he can stay all day up except one daily nap. Walk 20-40 thousand steps per day, sometimes even higher (In current condition the record is over 51 thousand…). Do Taichi Kung-Fu 16 minutes in a row, do stair climbs set of 20 and other home movements. And of course his favorite hobby, fitness boxing:

With devastating punching power, he can knock down 270 lbs/120 kg boxing dummy with single blow and hit 100 lbs/45 kg heavy bag so hard that punches sound like blasts going off.
