Danny MacAskill’s gym workout is absolutely not like yours

Danny MacAskill's latest video, Danny MacAskill's Gymnasium, blows minds with five minutes of gravity-defying riding

The Danny MacAskill edit is now an institution of the cycling world – several times a year we are treated to between four and eight minutes of jaw-dropping riding from the Isle of Skye-born trials legend.


His latest edit, Danny MacAskill’s Gymnasium, is no different and, in this five-minute feature, darling Danny takes to his local gym to complete a workout that I guarantee is quite unlike anything either you or I complete on our usual spin circuit.

I don’t want to give away too much, but riding across a row of 15 barbell weights and grabbing a flying bike after jumping off a pommel horse are among the highlights in this must-watch.

If watching a man catch a bike mid-air isn’t quite enough, be sure to check out his back catalogue of equally impressive videos, including last year’s Danny Daycare, which saw him backflip with… a kid’s trailer in tow.
