A man “falls” off a treadmill and bounces into a push-up position. But is it real?
If you’ve ever fallen off a treadmill, then you know it’s near impossible to recover from such a fall. It’s the you’ll-never-return-to-that-gym-again kind of fall.
Unless you’re the guy in this video, who lands on all-fours into the perfect push-up position while checking out a woman. Almost too good to be true, right?
Turns out it might have been.
Several reports say the video is a prank and was staged. Still, falling on your side and bouncing off the treadmill into a push-up position on the floor can’t be an easy feat. Nor is it pain-free.
Staged or not, think of this video as a good tip on how to recover should you ever crash and burn while running on a treadmill.
