How much workout is too much workout? Netizens are trying to answer this question after the video of a fitness trainer’s intense workout routine has gone viral.
Devon Levesque, an internet-famous fitness trainer, posted a video of him trying exercises with added levels of difficulties. The video, after being shared on Twitter by @Overtime, has the microblogging website perplexed. The clip doesn’t just have him lifting huge weights, or doing powered cardio: it has him doing all of these exercises and more, at the same time.
It showed Levesque holding weights in both his hands while doing crunches in a swimming pool, weightlifting while balancing himself as his friends punched and kicked his abs, running while holding weights and then running in the opposite direction while the treadmill was apparently at a speed of 20 miles per hour, and even bear-crawling on the treadmill. And yes, every bit of the video looks as exhausting as it sounds.
Take a look here:

The video, despite being posted just two days ago, has racked up 10 million views. It also has more than 54,000 likes and 24,000 quote tweets.
Netizens were bewildered by the intensity. Many commented that they wanted to know what the trainer was preparing for, while many joked he was training to be a superhero. Others added this exercise routine wasn’t safe and advised others against performing it.
Lollolololol wtf. Literally any trainer or martial artist will tell you this dude is wasting his time and showing off nothing. Not one of these exercises is useful or functional. So ridiculous.

nothing in this video has any use or purpose. clown behavior. fitness influencers do this shit to make exercising look more intimidating than it is since general audiences don’t know better. then pass themselves off as ‘experts’ so they can sell you their bullshit https://t.co/tfT6JpdjsO
