OK, so we’re at a photo shoot for Paper Magazine yesterday in NYC and a conversation started about Herschel Walker. Apparently, he wakes up in the morning and does about 1000 sit-ups and 2000 push-ups and only eats 1 meal a day. Shae somehow felt that he could do 1000 push-ups in less than 45 minutes. Hit the jump for more pictures and to find out the whole story! BTW, Pharrell & Phillip were the only 2 who believed he could do it.
Confident and feeling good, he thinks it’s going to be a breeze, and with over $1000 in the pot a little richer…
Getting close to 200, we started to feel a crack in his armor especially when his form started to change…
To avoid any cheating, Johnny Cake decided he had to get involved and used a rolled up magazine which Shae had to tap with his chin every time he went down
A sweaty mess, Shae started to realize he was in trouble, 400
He also started to dispute the count, 500
Legs now a little wider this man is in a full on struggle, 600
700, he now knows that he’s going to have to take a walk to the ATM
With not much time left on the clock he checks the count, 788
Drops down and does another 28 to end up with 816 push-ups in 45 minutes! The man is a beast but he has to pay up! Now on the elevator to the ATM, we start discussing sit-ups. Shae tells us that he can do 1000 in 30 minutes but not in a single form. We settle on 1500 bicycle sit-ups in 30 minutes, elbows have to touch the knees every time. Considering that he just wore his self out and the fact that we don’t think he can do it 2 of us take the bet. Morale of the story, don’t be greedy, he did the 1500 in 22 minutes! He still owes Pusha & FAM $ for the push-ups.
