Robert Lewandowski puts Barcelona teammates to shame during strength test, nobody comes close to him
| Last updated
Poland striker Robert Lewandowski effortlessly put his Barcelona teammates to shame by showcasing his incredible strength during a push-up challenge.
Lewandowski, 34, left Bayern Munich last season and completed a sensational £42.5m transfer to Barcelona.
The former Bayern Munich star has enjoyed an impressive start to life in Spain, with Lewandowski already scoring 18 times in 20 appearances for Barcelona this season.
Lewandowski, who scored an incredible 344 times in 375 appearances for Bayern, is also leading the race for the Pichichi Trophy (La Liga’s top scorer).
The Barcelona star is having an impact at the Camp Nou off the pitch as well, which was shown in the documentary series ‘FC Barcelona: A New Era.’
During a strength challenge to see which Barcelona player could hit 50 push-ups, Lewandowski said Spanish wonderkid Ansu Fati could only manage around 40.
Barcelona defender Ronald Araujo, much like Fati, failed to hit the 50 mark and fell short by only producing 42 push-ups.
However, Lewandowski came out on top as he successfully reached the 50-push-up threshold, with the Poland captain even celebrating by doing the dab.
Speaking in the clip (which can be viewed in the video player above), Lewandowski said: “And of course, I won this challenge.
“But we can do another challenge next time, even 60 maybe?”
The five episodes from the Barcelona documentary series, produced internally by the La Liga club, are available to watch on Amazon Prime Video.
Lewandowski, who is under contract until 2026, has insisted that it was “easy to adapt” to Barcelona’s playing style after arriving in Spain last summer.
“It was very easy to adapt from day one. My first communication with my new colleagues was very good,” he told Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia.
“I tried to communicate with them both on and off the field. It’s a group of players with huge potential but also great people.
“I’m in the club I want and when you feel relaxed and happy, everything is easier.”
