Bell broke out the workout in the second quarter of the Steelers' 20-15 win against the Detroit Lions at Ford Field.
The Steelers trailed the home team 6-3 before posting a nine-play, 75-yard scoring drive. Bell took a first and goal carry with 4:15 remaining in the quarter. He sprinted to his right, before juking left and running the ball through the center of the defensive line. He pulled two defenders into the end zone before getting to his feet to party.
Bell ran toward a cameraman and found his teammate JuJu Smith-Schuster in a crawling position. He sat down on Smith-Schuster before leaning back toward a standing and 'spotting' Antonio Brown. Bell then pushed up the football, pretending it was a weight bar, mimicking a bench press. Steelers offensive linemen cheered on Bell during the celebration.

After the game, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin was asked about Bell's heavy usage this season.
He has a league-high 194 rushing attempts.
"It's about the individual player," Tomlin told reporters, according to the team website. "I've learned through experience at this level that these are unique guys. There are no cookie-cutter answers to any of these things in terms of how to deal with people, particularly at the running back position. Le'Veon is a unique guy, a unique athlete. He's a unique personality, and so how I handle him might be different than how I'd handle someone else."
"It's definitely different than how I handled Rashard Mendenhall or some of the other guys I've coached. I'm comfortable with our usage of him because of the relationship I have with him, and the knowledge I have of him as an athlete and a football player. He's highly conditioned. He's a tremendous competitor, he's uniquely competitive even in an industry that's laced with people who are ultra-competitive. He's uniquely durable."
Bell posted 76 yards and a score on 25 carries in Sunday's victory. He also had two catches for five yards in the victory.
