David Beckham stripped to his underwear and performed 22 pushups on top of a grand piano. Fortunately, the sports star posted the video to his Instagram.
It is all because Becks is currently participating in the “22 Pushup” challenge.
That 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 servicemen kill themselves post-conflict… 22 a day, basically 1 an hour,” Beckham wrote on Instagram.
“So I am doing what Guy R, Jason S and Charlie H are doing and supporting, respecting and appreciating all the servicemen 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.
Celebrities then challenged 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:
So my lovely friend Mr Guy Richie the film maker and supreme athlete has nominated me to do 22 press ups consecutively for 22 days ( and by the way his challenge was that I do my first lot at 44,000 feet as he knows I’m travelling) ….This isn’t one of his daily routines where he likes to teach u a lesson and beat you, it’s for a very good reason… 22 service men kill themselves post conflict… 22 a day, basically 1 an hour. 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 … @guyritchie @justintheroux @brooklynbeckham
