Jan was even a world champion in powerlifting in his weight class.

However, this challenge was a little different to what he was he used to.

Jan can be seen lifting two young women by their waist’s into the air, repeating the movement to create a bench press.

Jan, from the Czech Republic, said: “At first I wasn’t even sure if I could pull it off, I just had the idea and wanted to try it.

“Even though the girls weighed very similar amounts, it felt completely different lifting them.

“After a bit of thinking, this seemed like one of the safest ways to lift someone without hurting them, and I gave it a go.

“The weight was easy for me, however the distribution of their weights wasn’t great and so that made it particularly difficult.”
