I can always count on Danica Patrick to make me feel like a lazy bum for skipping out on the gym. It’s all fitness all the time on Danica’s IG, and today was no different with some brutal-looking handstand pushups — because regular push ups aren’t already awful enough.
Danica claims these handstand pushups of the freestanding variety are her weakness, but she still pumped out five of them before her body succumbed to the torture:

Ohhhh how are you ever going to be better at something if you don’t practice!!!!!! I can do kipping handstand push ups against the wall for days, deficit handstand push ups, strict handstand push ups…… but freestanding, not as good at. So today I wanted to get 5 in a row. I did….and then fell out. Ego is what motivates us because it’s impatient, the soul has forever and is what gives something integrity and authenticity. See, if we only do things to only get attention or make money or be liked, we will never achieve the happiness we seek. If we do things that we truly love, the ego can help motivate us to achieve soulful fulfillment. today my soul was happy with 5 reps, and an ego check fall.
Need someone to motivate your ass to workout for free? Follow Danica on IG, she’s always up to something active… crossfit, yoga, and sometimes even a little NASCAR. You’ll feel like crap for not being a beast like her, but it’s motivation nonetheless.
