I could do that


#3

Now thats functional training! Stupid for most... impressive to watch!!!


#4

I don't think he hit parallel on all reps. Let's go to the judges....


#5

The bars too high on his neck ... way unsafe...


#6

Skill. But so what?
Maybe good for a Vaudeville act... not good for bodybuilding.

I say a guy doing that on a bosu ball on my gym with a 135 barbell
He was with his buddy who was doing standing oblique twist on another bosu at the same time in the corner of the gym.

I used to play ice hockey with him


#8

I am waiting for the day when I see someone do this and they roll their ankle and snap it and fall on their ass.

Then again, it wont stop people from doing stupid shit like this.


#9

Ah Findlay! That's Jim's gym. The people around here just eat that up. They talk about it all the time like he's a weightlifting god.


#10

No offense, but it reminded me of a bear in circus.


#11

i almost feel bad that the entire time i was watching it i was chanting, "fall, fall, fall..."


#12

Why's that not surprise me that happened in Ohio? :slight_smile:

Heeeey now, just jokin'. My heart's in Florida, anyway.

Oh yeah, about the video. I don't want to be able to squat 135 x 4 on a Bosu Ball. Why work so hard for that? I'd be happy with, ya know, 75 x 25 or something like that. Guess I just don't want to do what it takes to be functional.


#13

X2

Was I the only one freaked out by the bug eyed chick to the right of the screen?


#14

Why?


#15

How many times is this video going to be posted?


#16

Apparently more than what you like. This isn't exactly something I would search for. Obviously there are some people that haven't seen it. You didn't have to watch it....again. Get over it.


#17

Wow I saw a picture of this before, never the video though. I thought it was fake...


#18

I didn't watch it. I am just surprised it keeps on popping up. This is about the third or fourth week in a row where this has been posted.


#19

Functional movement pattern, for a circus performer...


#20

I'd call him retarded, but that'd be making fun of retards
