ASU football coaches do pushup challenge while social distancing
If you’re a heavy consumer of social media lately, you’ve probably seen the pushup challenges people are sending one another.
It varies depending on how merciful your friends are, but the “see 10, send 10” encourages people to film themselves doing 10 pushups, post it on social media and then “tag” their friends, forcing them to do the same. It’s a way to encourage active lifestyle — and quite frankly, it’s something to do — during the coronavirus outbreak that has caused many to keep themselves at home.
The ASU football coaching staff took part in the social media challenge.
In a video the program tweeted on Monday, co-defensive coordinator Marvin Lewis told offensive line coach Dave Christensen to take a step back when he walked into the office.

The chain of pushup challenges went from there.
Various members of the staff, including Antonio Pierce, Kevin Mawae, new offensive coordinator Zak Hill and head coach Herm Edwards, did 10 pushups in various parts of Sun Devil Stadium so as not to get too close to one another.
Coach Edwards did his pushups on top of “A” Mountain, the butte that’s adjacent to Sun Devil Stadium and just north of most of the ASU Tempe campus.
Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey issued an executive order on Monday to stay at home except for essential services and activities, but outdoor exercise and recreation was deemed essential.
So keep it up, ASU coaches.
