With majority of the population staying indoors nowadays due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, social media “challenges” have been sprouting left and right. Houston Rockets superstar Russell Westbrook decided to jump into the bandwagon, as he displayed his physical gifts by doing the “Push-Up” Challenge” and sharing it on Instagram.
As the name implies, Westbrook did several reps of the calisthenic exercise and even took it up a notch by having his eldest son Noah on his back.
