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.

Levesque often posts similar fitness regimens on his Instagram where he has more than 4.7 lakh followers. He also has an app of his own where he posts body-building tips, routines, and diets for the fitness-conscious. Last year, he made news when he said he was preparing to bear-crawl a marathon.
