A few more questioned the need for such a ridiculous attempt. One fan said, “Come on man like you know in you’re heart u are not gonna lift all that weight with ya legs. I’ll never understand shit like this.” while another said, “To be fair what type of leg press is that. That is way more dangerous than the traditional leg press. What were the spotters supposed to do. Lift up 400 KG of him. Even if they could deadlift 200 KG each they can’t just stop it from falling and lift it up.”
