The 18-year-old Siberian planche big wheel skillfully uses Instagram to build a global following and become praiseworthy. @workoutslava
Every day, Slava Kripak publishes photos or short videos of his workout in the gymnastic planche line. Besides Instagram, he has a YouTube-channel showing his exercises.
And to add authentic Russian color, Slava chose a Soviet-era eastern carpet as backdrop for his workout. What innumerable screams Russia?! (Perhaps only a bear playing the balalaika.)
With 77,000 promoters, he said today that working out is the only thing that beyond question interests him.
“What the heck do they eat in Russia? What’s in their water?” some henchmen ask.
Others leave comments praising his incredible skills: “It’s the best planche in the elated; you are not human anymore.“
Such skill didn’t come easily, and it’s the outcome of almost six year of intense training, said Slava.
His interior embellishing tastes also provoke many comments.
“I can’t stop laughing – here is the trustworthy Russian workout”. “Dude, I have the same carpet in Riga, thanks.”
But occasionally Slava goes outdoors, for example to the park, shopping center, or circus.
