Video of the Day: Homeless Bodybuilder Working Out in Paris

This video popped up on Reddit this past Friday and it’s pretty awesome.  Meet Jacques Sayagh, a homeless man in Paris that apparently never misses a workout.  If you’re a dedicated gym-goer that tries to get in a workout every single day, you can definitely appreciate this guy’s dedication.  The video is in French, so for all I know he addresses the fact that supporting a regimen like that requires a steady source of calories.  People seem to help him out with “donations,” so is that enough to cover the costs of his meals and protein powder?

The person that posted the video on YouTube asked the question, “What’s your excuse?”  This is obviously directed at people that find lots of reasons to avoid working out, but to be fair, a lot of those same people would have plenty of time to get some sets in if they had every single day off.  But even though Jacques has lots of free time, this isn’t something that you see every day.  It’s definitely an attention grabber when you see a homeless man that’s just finished a set admiring the results in the HSBC bank window’s reflection.
