Here is One of the Most Impressive Feats of Physical Prowess the Internet Has to Offer


God help you if you ever find yourself in some sort of physical competition with Eirik Thingstad Lundstein. If you haven't seen the 28-year-old Norwegian martial artist/gymnast/bodybuilder/Instagram genius do his whole superhuman weight-lifting thing yet, you're missing one of the most impressive things the internet has to offer. Lundstein's feats include backflips holding first heavy kettlebells and then a loaded barbell — which, for most of us, is only conceivable as something we'd attempt as an extremely drunk and ill-advised dare.

It’s nice to see someone with such absurd control over his body, but since you are probably not such a person, you should probably, definitely, not try this stuff at home. Or in a gym. Or pretty much anywhere, really.

Disclaimer aside, if you see this and it made you want to get into building a super-functional, strong body, check out the Men's Journal series Fit From Scratch.
