Oh My: Is Fredo Cuomo Lifting FAKE WEIGHTS to Make Himself Look Strong?

At Outkick.

They do in fact make fake weights -- a bunch of Internet Bros have been caught lifting the hollow plastic weights.

They're kind of a staple of the Internet Fitness Industry.

A lot of guys who can't even lift like to use them to impress children who don't know any better.

Even legit strength coach Jeff Cavaliere has been accused of posting Fake Weight Lifts to his youtube account.

So check this out:


That's supposedly a 100 pound dumbbell Fredo is one-arm pressing there.

But... he's not pressing from a weight bench.

No, he's pressing from an... office chair.

An office chair that can apparently hold up an extra 100 pounds as he drives the weight into the air.

Oh, and of course when things are moving, they apply more force than when they're just sitting on something.

And another thing: if you lift up that much weight with ONE ARM, the other half of your body must be iron-hard tense in order to support that arm. It's like flying a plane on one wing: you're going to have to assume an odd position to manage it.

It can be done, but there's going to be a lot of strain on the non-wing part of the plane.

You'd have to move your body to keep that weight somewhere close to the center-line of your body-weight.

Otherwise you'd just tip over.

Fredo's not doing that. He's just putting this likely hollow, plastic Fake Weight straight up. With this alleged 100 pounds of excess weight just straight over his right shoulder.

He should completely tip over if he has all that weight over a single shoulder. That makes one half of his body suddenly 100 pounds heavier than the other. You can't remain seated if your right side is overloaded by 100 pounds.

He's not on his feet, where he could balance better. He's on his butt. On a cheap office chair.

As the guy challenging Cuomo to prove he's not lifting Fake Weight points out: It's impossible to lift a lot of weight with ONE ARM while appearing to just be completely straight and completely relaxed on the non-lifting side of the body. The half of your body which doesn't have the weight in its hand is working nearly as hard as the one with the weight.

If it's a real weight, that is.

If it's a fake plastic hollow weight -- then you can just put it straight up without having to lean your body to keep it over your center line, and without having to tense the rest of your body.

Just like Fredo can be seen doing here, coincidentally enough!

If he has the core strength to press one hundred pounds in one hand while showing no tension through the other side of his body, then he surely has the core strength to do the "flag" position from a flagpole, where he just grabs the pole with both hands and sticks his body straight out and perpendicular to it.

Can he do that? If he can, why hasn't he narcissistically published photos of him doing the flag?

Fredo: Do you even lift, Brah?

I love this.

I love this so much.



49 As an actual gym rat I'd like to point out that it's not just about bracing the other half of his body, this mewling dumbass has most of that so-called hundred lb about 4 to 4.5 in back behind the coronal plane of his body.

That's quite the accommodating office chair.
