Over the past year, we’ve seen exercising taken to a new normal as many had to adjust to staying home in attempts to curb the spread of the Covid-19 virus.
One man however has taken exercising to new heights when he decided to do some sit ups from on top of an electrical pole.
Recently, a man from China caused a massive power outage when he decided to climb an electrical pole to do perform some sit ups.
shared a video of the man doing his stomach exercises on top of a pole that’s about 9 meters in the air, in the southwestern city of Chengdu, China, and we’re just as confused as you.
The man’s mind-boggling behaviour is not only dangerous but he caused a massive power outage that affected tens of thousands of residents.
According to reports, locals who spotted the man notified the authorities and a medical team was sent to the electrical pole to prevent any emergency that could happen.
The local power company had to initiate an emergency power cut that affected tens of thousands of homes.

But why did the man decide to do his sit ups on top of an electrical pole? Your guess is as good as ours because no official reason was given.
The man however, was arrested by the police for his irresponsible behaviour.
The authorities have warned the public to not copy the man’s life-threatening actions and we’d advise the same thing.
