A Big Push Up Fairwell for Vesi!
Vesi you were one of the first Man Bicepers and we will miss you! You must come back and visit often!
Keep lifting and show your girls what being a strong, fit woman really is all about!
Push ups here, push ups there…push ups when you’re almost bare!
Thank you Lisa! We expect a new one from the Santa Speedo Run this year!
Thank you also for this picture from after your run! Nice handstand push up!
One-upping the Planking Craze
So we made good on our vow to do push ups around Boston and start the Man Bicep push up trend! Here are some pictures we took while celebrating Candy’s birthday!
The first one of the day was done by Candy on the MBTA.
Next we stopped at a candy shop called Sugar Heaven on Boylston St. Brian wanted to show Candy a shirt he had considered buying for her as a joke.
The next one we snapped was not in the most hygienic place….
We then took a nice walk to a bar called Whiskeys. Where I did a nice push up between booths.
Candy figured out a way to make the booth push up harder by putting her feet on the back of the booth.
We then had to get our Man Bicep Coach involved. He did a very impressive weighted push up outside of the restaurant.
Next we met up with a co-worker who we convinced to do a push up on the street. A homeless woman was so impressed that she walked up and gave Alyson a hug before anyone knew what was going on.
Our next stop was Rattlesnakes’ roof deck. Candy pulled off a staircase push up.
After leaving the roof deck, we attempted a stacked push up out on the street. We all ended up collapsing so I’m not totally sure this one counts…
After that failed push up attempt, I did a decline push up from a bike rack. Brian decided it wasn’t hard enough and push down on my back for added resistance.
And the last push up of the night….on a pizza shop counter. (We did get permission before we attempted this one. The employees were impressed as you can see!) 🙂
So now everyone must go out and do push ups in random places!!! We must start the Man Bicep Push up trend! No more stupid planking! haha
Send us a picture of your push up and we will send you a Man Bicep t-shirt!!! 😉
Planking – Not the exercise
So yesterday night, Candy Ryan and I watched the new Office episode. It talked about the new trend of planking in random places. Of course I was upset to realize that by planking they didn’t mean this:
This second version could, I guess, really work your core depending on how and where you decided to plank, but still…I was sad to find out people weren’t exercising in random places.
I’ve decided Man Bicep should start a new trend…push ups in random places!!! haha Maybe we will try to start this one today…. 🙂
