    This guy... wiry, maybe 5’7”-ish ... Hands look really strong. Someone earlier mentioned carpenters and the like. Guessing this guy does something comparable.

    I’m 6’2”, 250-ish... sometimes gym rat, but not much lately. I wouldn’t last a minute. Maybe not even 30.

    They only need 11 fails to make a profit.

    I’ll bet anyone $100 they can’t do it. That’s $200 to you if you can. ;)

    2 minutes is a long time, I took karate and the teacher had us do 2 minute spars.

    I was winded by like 1 minute, being dragged away after 2.

    So at $10 a pop that dude made $40-50 in the time you watched him. P.T. Barnum was right.

    I'm a big fatso, and even when I was young and thinner ( which really means ' less fat') I could never do 1 pull-up.
    ( or climb up a rope, do a rope swing etc.)
    I even broke my nose ar 11 trying to swing across a Jungle Gym- fell flat on my face...

    When I was 17 I hung from a 2x4 rafter for 1 minute on a $100 bet, just about killed me, but I did it.
    (I was a skinny kid, no muscle man)

    I've never made 8 seconds either BTW.
    In fact, if you added all my rides together they probably wouldn't add up to 8 seconds.

    Up until maybe 3-4 months ago (I’ve stopped working out since I started obsessively practicing in an effort to get my guitar skill level up to legit professional standards), I was able to hold a plank for two minutes. That’s TOUGH!
