KUSA - There is a new show about an extraordinary author, photographer and thrill seeker who, despite being born without legs, pushes the limit.

As part of a new Travel Channel series called "Armed And Ready," Kevin Michael Connolly takes on different challenges. He appeared on 9NEWS Friday morning.

"Armed and ready in a nutshell is about taking an activity you don't think a legless guy could do, and making him do it. Along the way we build some adaptive devices for me to achieve my goal," Connolly said.

Connolly does everything from mountain boarding to a street luge and even cliff diving.

"I'm suppressing anxiety most of the time especially when I went cliff diving," said Connolly.

One thing you'll notice is Connolly's incredible arm strength.

"When you walk on your arms for 27 years, you tend to develop some muscles in that area," Connolly adds.

"Armed and Ready" premieres Tuesday night on the Travel Channel.
