Offbeat Video

A fitness fanatic took a quick break from his job in order to complete some pull-ups while hanging from a power line 40-metres in the air.

Anthony Lafault, 26, was casually gazing out of his window in the city of Serpukhov, Russia, when a very unusual site caught his eye.

Anthony spotted an electrician hanging 40-metres high in the air from a set of high-voltage power lines completing a set of pull-ups.

The fitness fanatic completed a few sets of impressively dangerous and scary pull-ups, before safely lowering himself back onto a crane as his work colleague and Anthony looked on, shocked and amazed.

Anthony said: “I was very worried about the guy, but fortunately, everything ended well.”
