This German guy, who goes by the name of El Eggs, can be seen lifting an entire bench and his own bodyweight in some sort of bench-press/push-up mash-up. It’s incredible.

The move is part of a new German “sport project” called Calisthenic Movement. Judging by various videos we’ve come to the conclusion that it’s basically an extreme version of yoga mixed with Parkour, without all the running around of course.
