Think You Know Sit-Ups? You Got Nothing on This Guy
There are workouts, and then there are workouts, and then... there is this guy doing the craziest version of sit-ups we've seen in a long time. The video starts slow, as it should, with our protagonist psyching himself up for a legitimately intense 20 seconds of ab-crunching.
First, let us concede that this actually looks pretty difficult (and pretty painful) to pull off, so don't try this at home. Second, it's sort of mesmerizing to watch, like an intense dolphin flipping upside down. The fun starts around 0:25 and doesn't really let up. We're not entirely sure who the camera(phone)-man is but our thanks go out to him (or her) for sharing a new way to perhaps get six-pack abs. But hey, if it works for this guy then who are we to judge? Right?
What's the strangest routine you've seen in a gym? Let us know in comments below.

What the heck, that just looks so weird. It kinda looks like his legs are broken and just sitting there while the rest of his body is flapping around.
It took me a few minutes to figure it out, but this exercise (yes, it is an exercise -- sure a really bad one) is basically a quadriceps extension. It's the tail wagging the dog, but the movement is the same -- only with the lower legs fixed. There's also a serious challenge for the abs to hold the body up away from the bench, just like a plank.
Just because someone is fit and they do something crazy doesn't mean you should do something crazy. Because, often, crazy equals dangerous.
He'll have bad knees for years.
