Maddy Curley is now a CrossFit fanatic, and can easily deadlift an entire person

brightcove.createExperiences(); Maddy Curley can deadlift her friend, but can she Stick It?

In this hilarious video, the All-American gymnast (who also showed off her flips and tricks in the movie Stick It) successfully deadlifts her friend Amanda Douglas off the ground – but then drops her straight back down.

Curley, now a CrossFit competitor (and still acting) in Los Angeles, seems to have forgotten that she can’t just slam Douglas to the floor like she would with a barbell, and bursts into laughter once she finally realizes what she did.


The video, which Douglas initially posted on Instagram in November, went up on Imgur on Sunday and quickly racked up almost 5 million views on Imgur.

It’s not the first time Curley’s used Douglas for a little human weightlifting. She (more successfully?) carried Douglas in another photo in one hand, with a dumbbell in the other.

But for the safety of others, Curley should probably just stick to lifting barbells.
