Russians are a different breed. Everybody knows that. But even as crazy Russians go, these guys working out with a bear are on some wild stuff.
Originally posted on the Russian workout blogger vovkd_0804's Instagram, the video has amassed 25 thousand likes, and been shared across the internet. Even ESPN published the next-level clip to their TikTok.
But while the average American can't fathom the veins of steel, or vodka, that went into this video's creation, many viewers were not surprised.
"Average Russia military training," @wydhuey commented.
vovkd_0804 has many videos with the well-behaved bear, including with Santa Claus, playing soccer, and doing pull-ups. He even has a video with a Tiger.
How is this all possible?
As @Bandit__Streams said, "There is only one answer: Russians."
