Splits are daunting enough for us mere mortals, without attempting to do them while suspended across two chairs. Now add 100-pounds of cold steel to the mix, and we’re ready to faint just from thinking about it.
This astounding feat is exactly what one talented weightlifter does.
Seen standing on two chairs while holding a 100-pound barbell over his head, he drops down into full splits—sliding the chairs apart while doing so—balancing on his feet about a foot and a half off the ground.
According to Jukin Media, the weightlifter did it to raise awareness for “hardcore stretching.”
Consider us aware, and impressed.
