about the video
A Chinese construction worker in Huangshan, Fujian has become an internet sensation for his gymnastics skills. As a student, 23-year-old Shi Shenwei, didn’t do well in school and was an online gaming addict. But he wanted to later change himself and a workout video inspired him.He used bricks as dumbells and scaffolding as high bars and self-taught himself. His cousins dutifully took videos of his workout from different angles. And he then put the videos up on a Chinese Instagram-like app ‘Kuaishou’. He got 1.1 million followers! His popularity has now led to invitations to perform in many talent shows in China. (Reuters)
