Witness perhaps the greatest physical feat EVER performed, by @mohamed_ehab_youssef , thanks to @atginsta . Volume 🎼 UP (video here: https://www.instagram.com/p/B5-0J3gjAI6/).
A 170-something pound man tears over 380lbs off the ground, assumes a non-traditional “lie back” on second pull, breaks feet off the ground, and nails the catch in a depth most cirque du soleil performers can’t do with NO weight in hand. Then, nonchalantly he stands it up like a warmup.
The speed, power, control, agility, mobility, coordination, and strength-to-bodyweight showcased in this one effort makes all historical performances by all elite Crossfitters look quaint.
Moreover, it’s a sobering moment of comparison when thinking about how much convincing it takes to get average people to just maintain the capacity to walk up a flight of stairs or strengthen ANYTHING. This performance is beyond impressive. But it’s also performed by a human. This is what the human body can do. With a few minutes per week, we can become better. There’s no need to opt in to lose all physical capacity.
