VIDEO: CrossFit Athlete Poses as 84-year-old Man at Muscle Beach

 

It’s not all business here at Purpose2Play. Sure, we often feature serious athletes and their stories, but what happens when one of those athletes gets recruited for a fun prank?

Kenneth Leverich is a 28-year-old CrossFit athlete who can throw 50-pound dumbbells around like footballs.

That’s why when Thrillist asked him to pose as an 84-year-old man, visit Muscle Beach, and challenge the younger guys to a lifting compeition, they knew he would put on a good show.

I can’t help but think of the “Mandelbaum” episode from Seinfeld.

Now, for the actual prank. “It’s go time!”
