Jaw-Dropping Parkour Stuntman Alexander Rusinov Cheats Death In Photos You've Got To See To Believe

It's not often that we advise readers not to try a workout at home. But this is one of those times.

Daredevil Alexander Rusinov, a Russian gymnast and Parkour enthusiast, takes extreme workouts to a whole new level by performing his handstands and other acrobatics on some of his hometown's most dizzying architecture.

Drawing inspiration from Parkour videos, Rusinov started practicing his stunts on a local playground and was soon posting videos to YouTube of his extreme antics, the Daily Mail reported. In the description for his most recent clip, he said it proves "that I can trust in myself and my own strength," HuffPost Weird News reported.

Go ahead, trust your own strength. Just maybe keep your feet a little closer to the ground.
