My weekends are usually composed of lazy hours with a book right at my face, or a simple cuddle session with our pups while watching Studio Ghibli movies or writing my stories in serenity. But sometimes, your weekends just have to be a lot wilder and crazier. There’s nothing more fun than watching people beat each other up and challenge themselves with insane obstacle courses both in nature and in fun man-made courses.

This August, RTL CBS Extreme, the channel for extreme and action-packed content that also showed thrilling and popular series such as Hawaii Five-0 and NCIS: Los Angeles, will be throwing you adrenaline filled shows with Warrior Weekends.

Spartan: Ultimate Team Challenge

Before the show’s season 2 to come this September, RTL CBS will be bringing back Spartan: Ultimate Team Challenge Season 1, thrilling you with five teams–two women, two men, and one Spartan elite–who will be going through a most grueling and brutal one-mile obstacle course only the most united and solid teams can dream of overcoming.

Rushing through all the obstacles like fire, mud, barbed wire and even more extreme obstacles, each contending team will be competing to gain $250,000. A test to see how powerful the human spirit can be, you’ll be able to witness the best of human durability and determination with the first season of Spartan: Ultimate Team Challenge.

Catch the show on Saturdays and Sundays at 12:30PM on RTL CBS Extreme starting August 5.

Wimp 2 Warrior

As the name says, this Australia-based mixed martial arts reality show would be unleashing the inner fighter just nestled underneath the skin of a batch of ordinary men and women. Braving through an intense six month training program, their mental and physical strength will be challenged until only a handful of these “wimps” are left to compete in the final fight.

Dubbed “the Human Experiment,” W2W airs during Saturdays and Sundays immediately after Spartan: Ultimate Team Challenge.

Bear Grylls: Mission Survive

Not even celebrities are spared from the wild!

In an unyielding 12-day expedition through mother nature’s backyard, wilderness guru Bear Grylls tests the wit and the will to survive of celebrities like Les Misérables film actress Samantha Barks, former Dancing on Ice judge Jason Gardiner, and five other celebrities, pushing each of them to the limit with crazy challenges built to break body and spirit until only one has survived through the fury of nature.

Find out whether these stars will unfold their hidden talent for survival or become one of natural selection’s victims and face elimination on Bear Grylls: Mission Survive, airing on Saturdays and Sundays right after Wimp 2 Warrior starting August 5.

Warrior Weekends will begin at 12:30 PM every Saturdays and Sundays starting August 5 and is available on SKYcable HD, Chanel 209, Destiny Cable Digital channel 104, and Cablelink HD channel 310.
