Kevin Rudd: Man of steel

Kevin Rudd is a lot of things; a former Prime Minister, a diplomat, a humble back bencher, and even a 'psychopath', according to one of his colleagues.

One thing Kevin Rudd is not, is a man of steel, as this video shows.

Uploaded to his personal YouTube account under the headline 'Total Failure', the video shows the former PM attempting a few chin-ups, but even with a little assistance from a much fitter man, Mr Rudd never really gets off the ground.

As one YouTube commenter points out, "He can carry the weight of a nation, but cannot carry his own body weight".

The member for Griffith has been out and about in recent weeks, criticising Prime Minister Julia Gillard's mining tax, re-appearing on Sunrise and touring with local MPs.

Despite his insistence he has no plans to challenge, many within the Labor caucus see Mr Rudd's busy media schedule as a sign he wants the top job back.

Despite Joe Hockey's barbs on Sunrise this morning, Mr Rudd wouldn’t take the bait when it came to the leadership, and his Ruddmentum.
