A commuter has been spotted doing pull-ups on a train with a bracelet around his ankle.

Footage taken from inside the Sydney carriage showed the tattooed muscular man lifting himself up and down on the yellow handles of the carriage.  

Wearing a cap, backpack and cargo shorts, the burly commuter appeared to bemuse his fellow passengers with his training session.

The person who filmed the man’s workout joked that the device around his ankle was a fitness tracker.

‘What kind of Fitbit is that?’ the caption of the video posted on Reddit read. 

But it was clear to others it was in fact a GPS ankle tracker.

‘Appears more like the device that limits your exercise to a very specific area, usually monitored by law enforcement,’ one social media user wrote.

Others joked the device was one of the ‘original’ fitness trackers with GPS tracking, while some commented on the man’s top-heavy workout focus.

‘Old mate’s a bit top heavy,’ one person said. ‘The courts should be worried about him skipping leg day more than skipping town.’

‘Also, you don’t know his story so try not to judge.’
