Mike Barwis is a complicated fella. As one of the world's top strength-training coaches, Barwis – who is the focus of Discovery's new sports docuseries, American Muscle – can often be seen reducing 300-lb. NFL linemen to quivering, sobbing and vomiting wrecks with his insanely grueling workouts.
"How many people have I made vomit? I don't know if I can count that high," the raspy-voiced Barwis, the former strength and conditioning coach of the University of Michigan's football team, tells PEOPLE. "I push people to the wall and sometimes that involves ... well, a little upset stomach."
But there's another side to Barwis, who can squat 700 lbs. and bench-press over 450 lbs. When he's not training Olympians or some of the nation's top pro athletes at his gym in Plymouth, Michigan, he's putting in countless hours (often for free) each week helping people with debilitating medical conditions regain the use of their legs.

While she's no stranger to hurling insults, Aviva Drescher took it a step further on the Real Housewives of New York City season finale by tossing her prosthesis across the room.
"There were three shrews attacking me, and I really just wanted them to zip it," she tells PEOPLE. "Some people throw down their glasses when they get angry and I just threw down my prosthesis. And you know what? It worked. They fled."
Never far from some drama, Drescher has faced off with several of her cast mates on season 6 of the Bravo reality show, but when it came to tossing her leg, it was a first, even for her.

It was truly a "leg-endary" finale for The Real Housewives of New York City Tuesday, as the season ended with a surprising exclamation when an incensed Aviva Drescher removed her artificial leg and tossed it across Le Cirque.
The season's memorable last leg, fittingly enough, just might rival the insanity of Teresa Giudice's table flip on season 1 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

After Shannon Beador's mega-meltdown on last week's The Real Housewives of Orange County, it was only a matter of time before the blood pressure of the other wives was raised.
After the latest shouting match between Beador and Heather Dubrow, which saw Beador storm out of Lizzie Rovsek's beach house party, Beador took a walk with her husband, David, and then apologized to the wives for getting upset.
"I feel as though I got ambushed," said Beador. "I'm human, but I'm not proud of my display of humanness."
