Watch David and Brooklyn Beckham Take the 22 Push-Up Challenge for a Cause
We didn’t think it was possible, but the athletic father-son duo that is David and Brooklyn Beckham just got even hotter. On Wednesday, David Beckham accepted Guy Ritchie’s nomination to do the 22 Push-Up Challenge to raise awareness of the 22 servicemen who commit suicide from PTSD each day.
“I accept your challenge, not because you asked me, but I accept it for the 22 servicemen that take their lives from PTSD every single day. I’ve been to Afghanistan, I’ve seen the courage of our troops, and if there’s anything I can do to raise awareness to the situation, I can,” David said.
The retired soccer star then took to the aisle of his plane to complete the challenge, showing off his bulging biceps in the process. “And by the way, that was at 45,000 feet, Mr. Ritchie,” he said after he finished the set.
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
The hunky star then nominated his son, 17-year-old Brooklyn Beckham, to carry on his legacy and complete the challenge as well. In a gorgeous black-and-white video on the beach, the teen delivered.
“Thank you, dad, for the nomination. I hereby accept your challenge to do 22 push-ups for the 22 servicemen that take their lives,” he said, proceeding to do 22 hasty push-ups.
These big-muscled stars also have some big hearts.
