Ed Jenkins' stretches are truly eye-watering. 

The Australian Sevens captain recorded a video showing some Nordic hamstring exercises. Jenkins was absent from Australia's Sevens team in Vancouver last weekend, but it didn't stop him from continuing training.

Without Jenkins, Australia finished third in the tournament. They now lie fourth in the overall standings ahead of the trip to Hong Kong next month. 

What's amazing about Jenkins' routine is how effortless the routine looks. It's reminiscent of Rocky Balboa in Rocky IV.
