Why Chef Rush does 2,222 push-ups a day

October 13, 2019


WHEN I’M COOKING, ACTUALLY IT’S LIKE EUPHORIA. IT TAKES YOUR MIND TO ANOTHER PLACE AND IT
EASES YOU. WHEN I CAME BACK FROM DEPLOYMENTS THE FEELING
OF BEING OVERWHELMED, DEPRESED, ALONE HOPELESS A LOT. IS SOMETHING THAT YOU REALLY CAN’T DESCRIBE
I MEAN AND IT’S IS SOMETHING THAT YOU DON’T THINK ABOUT TOO MUCH AND JUST THINK THAT YOU
KNOW MAYBE IT’S JUST SOME YOU GOING TO GET OVER BUT IT’S NOT THAT SIMPLE. I DIDN’T REALIZE COOKING WAS MY THERAPY UNTIL
I ATUALLY REALIZED COOKING WAS MY THERAPY. I WOULD JUST DO IT ON A NORMAL BASIS AND WHEN
I WAS FEELING DOWN OR DEPRESSED OR OFF MY GAME SOMETIMES. I WOULD JUST GO INTO THE KITCHEN, PULL OUT
STUFF AND I WOULD START COOKING. AND I WOULD COOK AND I WOULD COOK. AND SOMETIMES I’LL MAKE, YOU KNOW, A SIX-COURSE
MEAL WITHOUT EVEN REALIZING IT. I’VE BEEN IN THAT EXACT SAME SPOT WHERE I
SMILE AND I LAUGH AND I KNOW THE SIGNS ALREADY. EACH AND EVERY TIME THAT I DO A PUSHUP I DO
IT FOR EACH AND EVERY PERSON THAT I LOST–ESPECIALLY WESLEY. AND A FEW OTHERS THAT POP IN MY MIND–RIGHT
OFF THE TOP AND THE ONES THAT ARE CONTINUOUSLY STRUGGLING RIGHT NOW THAT I HOPE AND PRAY
THAT THEY SEE WHAT I’M TRYING TO SAY. OR EVEN IF IT’S NOT ME–SOMEONE THAT IS SAYING
“HELP EACH OTHER. GET HELP” AND I KNOW THAT’S HARD BUT IF A PERSON LIKE
MYSELF, WHO CAN BENCH PRESS 700 POUNDS, AND WITH 24-INCH BICEPS CAN STOP AND SAY “HEY
I NEED HELP.” I MEAN. YOU CAN ALSO.

    How do his chest muscles rest if he does pushups every day? Isn't that overtraining?

    I can easily believe he's not on roids but I seriously doubt he ever benched 700lbs. I'm a firm believer in if it ain't somehow documented you didn't do it.

    dudes on roids. Thats why he needs help. He's a weak man inside because he injects harmful substances into his body, then cooks tortured sentient beings for fun… Guy needs fucking guidance himself lol.

    Damn I can only do like 200 push-ups a day

  • Reply Joel Brand June 25, 2019 at 6:46 pm

    Let's do the math. If he is fast and can do 200 push-ups an hour it would take him close to 12 hours to complete 2222. When does he find the time to eat, and work as a chef? Even at 300 per hour, it would take almost 8 hours. I'm not doubting him, just looking at things logically.

  • Reply Joseph Siciliano July 18, 2019 at 1:54 pm

    I'd like to see him on Hell's Kitchen. Watch Gordon Ramsay yell in his face.

    I can't even comprehend doing 2,222 of anything a day. The commitment is impressive.

  • Reply Reggaeman YO July 22, 2019 at 8:53 am

    I know it's not what they mean but they way they type it out it would sound like he was mentored Durden and then he would take his life because of it, like because of bad mentoring or something…I dunno, it just looked weird to me they way they put those things right after each other

  • Reply CHICAGO ILLEST October 4, 2019 at 4:23 am

    People that say hes on steroids are idiots, thats hard work and as you can see he does half rep pushups to keep tension on the chest , who says you wont grow because of overtraining!! You people keep on listening to the wrong advice, ive been doing 2 thousand pushups a day since my teen years without ever lifting a weight, and i can say i rep 315 easily , 15 reps (:
    So while the average person works chest once or twice a week with weights like with maybe 80 reps , im in the thousands , so is the chef lol

  • Reply Pedro Guerra October 10, 2019 at 3:01 pm

    Well I do 2 push ups a day.
