Armenian man executes wince-inducing push-up routine

Teeth-clenching footage from Armenia showing a young man performing an incredibly painful-looking exercise routine.

Narek Hakobyanv from the city of Vanadzor uses his local city park as a gymnasium, where his guerrilla workout is done in a playground designed for kids.

Hakobyanv can be seen using the back of his hands to push himself up while his legs behind him are elevated putting a lot of tension on his upper body.

He manages to not only complete several push-ups but also claps in between each one (as if his workout wasn't gruelling enough).

Hakobyanv said: "I do not recommend doing this exercise for beginners and children without good training."

The footage was filmed October 15.
