That's because chuck is awesome. He is also using a double sided paddle which has the weight distributed evenly.
(not that you actually did this for real but) Plus the further away on the pole/stick you put any weight the more it actually weights due to physics. It is also harder for the body to lif anything at arms length than if it was lifted next to your chest, just the way your muscles work :)
