WORMS, Germany — A man was clearly not lifting with his legs when he ran into a problem at a gym.

Firefighters in Germany came to his aid after he got a weight stuck around his penis.

It was inserted in the hole of a 5.5 lb. weight.

The firefighters said it took them about three hours to break him out, using tools that included a grinder and a hydraulic saw.

The fire department posted a picture of the broken weight on Facebook with the post, “Please do not imitate such actions!”
