A TikTok steadiness problem that males reportedly “can’t do” is taking social media by storm — and leading to some fairly hilarious pratfalls. A video of the off-kilter experiment presently boasts 1.eight million views on the platform.
Additionally dubbed the “gravity” problem, the stunt requires contributors to kneel on the ground with each elbows on the bottom in entrance of them whereas cradling their chin of their arms to help the pinnacle. They then attempt to tuck their arms behind their again one after the other and try to carry their our bodies within the preliminary place with out toppling over.
Regardless of sounding slightly frivolous, this experiment looks like astrophysics in comparison with a few of the dumb and harmful challenges circulating round TikTok.

One unsuccessful participant even captioned his video “why MEN can’t do that??”
For sure, newbie TikTok physicists had their very own theories.

One other theorized, “It’s extra to do with peak than gender I feel.”
Others thought that Rachel was dishonest by leaning again.
Ladies’s superior centeredness was additionally on show in final yr’s viral chair challenge, wherein women additionally dominated their couch-moving counterparts.
Nevertheless, consultants imagine that the feminine success price on challenges like these has to do with a discrepancy in mass distribution.
“The middle of mass for most women is decrease to the hips, whereas the middle of mass in boys is far greater,” defined UK science trainer Jeremy Johnson in a weblog publish on gravity.
