Extreme Wheelbarrowing

Tired of the traditional extreme sports involving skateboards, bikes, and skates getting all the attention? If so, then you might just be interested in the latest sport to come out of Germany… extreme wheelbarrowing.

Last week a humorous video of a German man, Alex Siegfried, talking about and showing off his extreme wheelbarrowing skills was posted to YouTube, which then created a bit of a frenzy on social sharing sites like Reddit.

While it may just appear to be a parody of popular skateboarding videos, there is no denying that there is an odd level of skill displayed in the 3-minute video. Either a lot of practice was required to accomplish some of the maneuvers or this guy has spent way too much time around construction sites.

What’s your take on extreme wheelbarrowing? Check out the full video below to see if you have what it takes to become the next wheelbarrowing superstar.
