You have all heard about acrobats right. Well for those of you who may not have seen them up close, these guys are extremely talented, flexible and can do some really cool daring and scary stuff.
Take a look at some of these photos of acrobats around the world and their super scary skills.
Check out these photos of acrobats below !
The Plankers!!For all the gym goers and fitness enthusiasts, you guys know hard the planking exercise is right. You guys probably know how hard the whole planking exercise. These guys here may have just set the benchmark for taking planking to a whole new level. And don't forget the point is to keep your whole body parallel to whatever you're holding onto. That's some professional planking for you guys!
The Hoop Loopers !!Sometimes you come across these problems in life that make you go a lil dizzy, where you just wanna rest your head in your hands and give yourselves a break. Not these guys though !! These acrobats really know how to deal with problems that can make you dizzy, make your head spin, give wavering thoughts, make you have wobbly feet and a bit shaky. Not for them though, for them, this is just the circle of life!
The Candle Holder !!Something as easy as holding a burning candle for some time can get pretty exhausting, especially the part where the candle wax starts melting. And even worse when the candle flame blows when you accidentally walked too fast. The acrobat is doing the same thing here, only this time she's holding not one but 10 candles and not with her fingers but with her stretched feet. And now this is what you literally call a daring feat.
The Anti-gravity Leaner !
Michael Jackson feels anyone? Remember one of the famous moves of Michael Jackson - The Anti-Gravity Lean. Though MJ did get some assistance from his special boots, shockingly it was also his physical strength that completed the move.
The woman here is no less in this regard, for with a little assistance from a fellow acrobat, and without the shoes, she still magnificently executed the similar Anti-Gravity Lean !!!
Is it just me or does the acrobat look like he's gliding in mid-air? Reminds me of how hawks would circle in the air to catch their prey below.
Only this time the strong guys below are praying that their hawk brother stays in mid-air.
The Biker !!
When you just got a new bike and all your acrobat friends want to jump along and go for a ride. Takes a professional bicyclist acrobat to please all her desperate friends.
If it were me, it would be just me speeding as fast as I can on the bike with ten guys running behind and cursing me for not giving them a ride.
The La La Landers!!
They remind me of Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone's character from the movie La La Land.
Only this time it looks like Sebastian and Mia have taken their dance moves 30 feet Higher.
The Twisters !!
These acrobats have literally entwined, interwoven, twisted, wrapped around, coiled around, interlaced around each other.
The Danglers !!
Just another day in the lives of acrobats. As they watch their friends do scary moves that would amaze the audience while they just stand there probably wondering if it is going to rain.
Takes guts to cross a shaky bridge while making sure to not look down at the raging waters below. Guess what? It takes even more guts to stay still while doing a handstand on a human bridge while staring face down at your buddies holding your weight, all the while telling you that you're doing a good job.
The Frogsplasher !!
For all the WWE fans, you guys have seen some of your favorite wrestlers do the daring frog splash where they jump of the ring ropes and land on the opponent.
This guy is the doing something 10 times scarier, jumping from a daring height without anybody on the ground to land upon. All that waits below is a see-saw with a soft cushion that can only hold his feet and his pals with their fingers crossed.
The Moon and The Shadow !!
You guys sure do remember a time like how we used to run as we looked up at the sky trying to race the moon. Always catching up to the speeding moon but never actually winning. Oh, the good times.
These guys here have a strict deal where the guy doesn't try fulfilling his childhood dream of racing the moon. Its all about Shadow Man going gracefully with the flow of Lady Moon in this one. Trust is everything people !
The Backbenders !!Some of us bend down to tie our shoe laces and then there we go, complaining about our life, our food, our job and most of all that annoying backpain of ours... These brave,strong ladies have literally been bending their backs ever since they got into the whole acrobatic life .
The Lifters !!
Sometimes you need the help of your family, friends and loved ones to lift you up in life to reach places, reach success or maybe just lift you up when you're down.
These guys here chose their acrobat friends and helped lift each other and their little buddy to reach the peak of his and their success. We all need a few lifts in our lives from time to time people.
The Lockers!Would you dare try crossing these guys if they stood in your way. Locked in position, locked in arms, locked in faith and trust,locked in unity, these guys sure are one indestructible human lock.
The Constructors !!This human construction site right here is complete. With the acrobats acting like human bricks and rods, the guys below make sure they have set the foundation for the ones above, while the guys above firmly hold on to the ones below. the whole point is about never letting go !!
The Upside downers !!
The title says it all, these guys are literally upside down, feet in the air and heads down.
The Propeller !!Two sharp things about this picture are - One those sharp blade like legs of the flexible acrobat and two, the sharp focus she maintains both on her skills and at the audience. The height of sharpness is what it is people !!
The Levitator !!
This woman just convinced me that she's levitating in the air, and no I don't think that foundation would have done any good if it was somebody else in her place.
