Rogan stated, “He’s a super jacked, powerlifter guy who does all these acrobatic things, amazing specimen, but this is his company. (talking about smelling salts)”.  He further went on to display a video of Jujimufu performing one such feat and pointed out, “Look, Jujimufu, full split while he is pressing a weight above his head. It’s 100 kilos so that’s like 220 pounds over his head while he is doing a full-split. Look at that flexibility that’s insane. With that muscle mass!

His guests, Congdon and Weinshenk were left stunned at the athleticism on display. Both women had also tried a whiff of the smelling salts prior which prompted Congdon to state, “Yeah, these are the kind of salts Jujimufu can handle, not me”.

Ronnie Coleman is widely regarded as one of the best bodybuilders of all time, his 8-consecutive Mr. Olympia victories standing as a testament to his incredible physique and strength. The bodybuilding legend also has reacted to a video of Jujimufu’s jaw-dropping gym stunts on his YouTube channel.

In one impressive display, Jujimufu balanced a weighted barbell on his shoulders while mowing the lawn, leaving Coleman so amazed that he had to watch it again. Jujimufu followed up with a charged sled push and gripping what looked like Thor’s hammer. Another highlight included box jumps, backflips, and high-row machine reps with attached weight plates.
