Oh Hell No: Deathwish Workouts On Top Of Cranes

deathwish-workouts.jpg

These are two videos from Russia and the Ukraine (respectively). The first shows a couple of crazy f***ing Ruskies doing pullups (including the no-hand version in the screencap) and other terrifying exercises while hanging from the side of a crane. The second is a guy in the Ukraine balance-walking the length of a crane 70-stories up along a rounded pipe, then doing some monkey-bar action and other nothing-to-live-for acts of bravery. Is bravery the right word? No lie, my hands are actually sweaty just from watching. Sweaty AND hairy. It's true, getting nervous also makes your palms grow hair. "Yeah, I'm pretty sure that's from masturbat--" IT'S FROM BEING NERVOUS.

Hit the jump for the vodka is more than enough reason for me to live, thank you very much.

Thanks to ragnar, who can do all those exercises but only performs them on the monkey bars at the playground because he's not ready to die. Biggie? Biggie was ready to die (he said it in a song!)

    I just tell myself that they are in a studio, and just surrounded by green-screen and an industrial fan. That's the only way I'm going to be able st sleep tonight.

  • I have severe vertigo... I am scared and I didn't play them. The stills were enough!

    Life h8ers?
    Or too much vodka when under 7?
    Or... is 'Russian' an explanation in itself?

  • thatcando

    is that crane made of rust?

    The stress of filming something like this ... you'd have to pay me. Alot.

    Watching someone fall to their death isn't something you're just going to shrug off.

  • >:U was anyone else hoping the video would end with him hitting the ground when he failed on the pull-ups?

  • 1jaxstate1

    The last part of the first video, once they stopped the music and you could hear the wind, is terrifying!

  • And a bit infuriating, truth be told —although I shouldn't probably care if someone wants to risk his life so needlessly. I just hope the last text in Cyrillic was a warning to dissuade people from trying this.
