A man from Sketty who ‘deadlifted 200kg’ in the gym hurried home to update his Facebook status and is wondering why no one has liked it yet.

Pete Bowen who’s 28, carried out the life-affirming act in the gym Sunday morning, despite having a shit load of beer and a kebab the night before.

Bowen said: “I’ve been on and off steroids for 10 years, which shows how committed I am to training and looking after my body.

“I love having guns which look like apples wedged into a pair of tights. The ladies love it and the boys who made comments about my delayed puberty in school don’t call me ‘Pubeless Pete’ anymore.

“Despite slacking with my posting of passive aggressive and boastful Facebook statuses recently, I went to the gym and lifted a fuck load of heavy weights for a rep before hitting the sauna. It’s what I do.”

Bowen arrived at the gym at 9am, before arriving home at 10:20 and posting the following message at 10:21: “Hungover but deadlifted 200kg today. What the rest of you pussies done lol #fitfam #strength #cleaneating #gymrat”

Bowen’s girlfriend Theresa Connell said: “I’m really proud of what Pete’s achieved, although given that I woke up with half his kebab in my hair this morning, I think the ‘clean eating’ hashtag was a bit much.

“It’s 12:52pm now though and he hasn’t had a single ‘like’. It’s like people don’t care or something.”

Pete added: “They’re all just jealous because I can wear a vest and get away with being a prick.”
