Manchester, England was the site of men and women disrobing in front of a live audience this morning. It’s a ritual known as weigh-ins, and it seems to be inherit to combat sports. These individuals remove their clothes and stand on a scale in order to evaluate their exact weight after depleting themselves of nutrition and water for days. Sometimes prior to these ‘weigh-ins,’ people even wrap their bodies in warm towels or sit in saunas for an extended duration in order to remove any excess water from their bodies. If a person is deemed to be ‘overweight,’ they have an hour to lose even more weight or they’re fined by their employer for being too fat.
Amazing stuff these weigh-ins. Now check them out.
