Human Weightlifting

I had posted this in the globo gym thread, and a couple people got a bit of a kick out of it, so I figured maybe it would do some good to post here.

I basically filmed myself doing a couple lifts with my brother (OHS squat, snatch balance, and a bunch more), and posted it for jokes, and somehow got over 3,000 views. So by all means enjoy, and there's plenty more of related material on the channel.

Unfortunately. I mentioned in the other thread, I can have him backflip off of my shoulders, while i stand upright and hes standing on top of me. he lands on the ground, obviously :P

As well, just yesterday, i got him to stand on my hands, while I bench press him to an arms-extended position, with him not using anything for balance. I love this kid, and his bravery.

Re: Human Weightlifting

As I've said about this in the other thread, learn to do the 2-man planche. Extremely cool party trick.
