Khalid posted footage on his Instagram of the adrenaline junkie. He has done pull-ups before and even suspended from the crane while it moves in the wind.

Khalid stated that it was hard to reach the crane because there were so many cameras.

“I got on the crane, and the wind was increasing in strength as I climbed up. It was strong enough to cause the crane to start moving and for the wind speed of the crane to be incredibly powerful.

“I performed a lot of dangerous, very dangerous exercise at the top without safety precautions.

“I suspended from the crane using one arm and did a pull up exercise.

“This is a hardcore work out!”

Khalid then uploaded the video onto Instagram, which has almost 18,000 hits since January 1, and received comments from those who wanted to know how it was done.

One person said: ‘I can’t watch this stuff in 2022 or else it will blow my anxiety out the water.’

One more: “I feel sick when I look downwards.” Bravo Khalid Congrats!’

Other people urged daredevils to be safe while others said they were just too tired from watching the footage.

Khalid previously performed daredevil stunts such as handstands, somersaults on an imposing building at 260 feet in Morocco and hanging with his hands from the building edge and leaping over a drop to 330 feet.

According to the skilled stuntman, he works out up to 8 hours per day and does his stunts from rooftops as there’s no gym nearby.

Khalid, from Rabbat, previously said everything he needed for a shredded physique could be found on the streets around his home. 

Because there’s no gym nearby, the skilled stuntman works out on the rooftops for up to eight hours each day. 

His other wild stunts include monkey push-ups on a roof, jumping between buildings and front flips. 

Khalid stated that 2019 was a year of “death-defying acts” but that the freedom it brings is well worth it.

“I consider myself lucky not to have been seriously injured.”

“I have broken my finger while landing from a jump.

“I make my stunts ahead of time and I always aim to learn a new trick, like the backflip.”

“You do extraordinary things with your body. But you also break through mental barriers. You see the world in a new way.”
