Footage of his strange workout was mocked after making its way to the internet. It turns out, however, that the exercise is actually a great butt workout but I'll be the first to admit if I walked into the gym and saw that I'd think, "what's wrong with that guy".
A fitness professional told the NY Post that while it looks silly but it's actually a version of a squat.
The workout targets glutes, quads, hamstrings and other lower-body muscles.
“Most people, when they squat, they put a bar on their back. Instead of being loaded up with a bar on your back, you put on this belt, and the machine works on air resistance. There’s no recoil when you jump like that.”
