Finally, here is the video…
As expected, my quest for a unique location for my video drove everyone crazy; especially the random times I’d pull over on the side of the road and jump out of the car to do pushups; thinking it might be a good spot. My 8 year old son even “gave me a ticket”. He wrote a french version of the following: STRONG is the New Black is forbidden! NO videos, NO photos, NO pushups allowed! He is still trying to collect the money for the fine:-)
We’ve taken some weekend trips lately, so the options were many. Of course there are plenty of great possibilities in Holland too- pushups with windmills & wooden shoes. Maybe I’ll do a video of Dutch locations soon? Although filming is actually forbidden in the Red Light District of Amsterdam. I could end up either with another fine, some interesting workout partners/video co-stars, or both!
So here is a photo from one of my “other” attempts. Brugge is just like Amsterdam; without the drugs, sex and other interesting things. Basically just beautiful bridges and Belgian Beer. This seemed safe until someone told me how shallow the water was! The ledge was actually too narrow for me to do respectable pushups…so more tricep work required!
Very few people submitted videos to the Men’s Health Pushup Challenge, which surprised me. I thought the other pushup freaks like me would come out of the woodwork, but I’m feeling kinda lonely and like more of a freak than ever! It’s never too late to send me a fun photo or video of your pushup attempts or other spontaneous displays of strength on your summer vacation! Happy travels to you!
