Method Man's newest weightlifting video has fans talking.

Method Man has clearly been hitting the weights and he isn't shy about showing his fans. Earlier this week he posted a video to Instagram from the gym that really got fans talking. In the clip, he shows that he can deadlift over 500 pounds, and he does it without any shoes. The caption seems just as impressed "5-HUNDO AT 216lb BODY WEIGHT." But where the real love comes out is in the comment section. Fans absolutely pile on praise for the rapper, though very little of it has to do with his rapping.

"I swear this man is going to be 80 years old and be the finest man on the planet!!!!" reads the top comment on the post, and it's no outlier. "I am not about to come on here and disrespect this married man by saying what’s on my mind….take my phone away Lord get beneath me Method Ma— I mean Satan! I rebuke u" another reads. He also got plenty of respect for his grind as well. "Yo mad respect to Method Man This dude got in great shape and strong as hell," one comment reads. "Wu-Tang Clan ain't nothin' to fuck wit!!" another hilarious concludes.

Method Man Impresses Everyone

This is hardly the first time Method Man's muscles have proven to be attention-getters. Last month the Wu-Tang legend posted a video of himself showing off his incredible abs in the exact same gym. Last month he also made a podcast appearance explaining his thoughts on the Wu-Tang Clan TV show. He explained that from his perspective the show wasn't accurate but he still encouraged people to watch it.

Method Man also spoke out about the homogenization of rap music. He discussed how the genre has lost the regionality it once had and that rappers from different places are less distinct than ever. While some disagreed with his take and pointed out specific examples, others understood exactly what he meant. What do you think of Method Man's 500-pound deadlift? Let us know in the comment section below.
