Indian Pole Gymnastics

From Wikipedia:

Mallakhamb or Malkhamb is a traditional Indian sport in which a gymnast performs feats and poses while hanging from a vertical wooden pole or rope. Mallakhamb also refers to the pole used in the sport. The word “Mallakhamb” is composed of malla which denotes a gymnast or a man of strength and khamb which means a pole. Mallakhamb can therefore be translated to English as pole gymnastics.

This video is simply mesmerizing – I had no idea such a thing existed. Not only is the soundtrack rocking, but I’m more than a little in awe that the second, stocky guy can move as easily as he does.

My abs hurt just watching this.
