There’s A Reason David Beckham’s Doing Push-Ups In His Underwear


David Beckham has stripped to his underwear and done 22 pushups on top of a grand piano, and fortunately for us the sports star posted the video to his Instagram.

Becks is currently participating in the “22 Pushup” challenge, which asks people to do 22 pushups for 22 days to raise awareness of military men and women who take their own lives after serving in conflict.


“It’s for a very good reason… 22 service men kill themselves post conflict… 22 a day, basically 1 an hour,” he wrote on Instagram.

“So I am doing what Guy R, Jason S and Charlie H are doing and supporting, respecting and appreciating all the service men and women and their sacrifice … we shine a light to support and help save lives.”

It’s similar to the ALS Ice Bucket challenge that took the Internet by storm in 2014, with celebrities challenging their friends to take part.

In August and September dozens of celebrities took to social media to share their own pushup videos.

Watch just a few of the videos, including Becks’, below:
