A man who has held a deep breath since May has suddenly lost his impressive chest measurement and gained a spare tyre again after exhaling.
32-year-old Simon Williams of Kettering set out to impress girls over the summer with his impressive pecs and lack of beer gut gained through a rigorous training regimen of breathing in deeply and tensing for almost four solid months.
By adding a tight belt he managed to reduce the movement of his belly when turning around sharply or using stairs by almost 95%.
After months of stiffly waddling around in a manner he thought women might find attractive, he finally put a shirt on and breathed out with a relieved sigh of “Ooooh, Christ” on Tuesday in preparation for winter.
“It was tough but worth it,” he told us.
“Back in early June I got checked out by a girl at a festival, but obviously I couldn’t talk to her as my stomach would have flowed back over my waistband like custard off a table.
“In the run up to Christmas I’m going to pick up women by drinking a lot of beer before going up to them and going ‘Allo Dahhhhhling’.
“They love that.”
