♪ Bob and Brad ♪ ♪ The two most famous ♪ ♪ Physical therapists ♪ ♪ On the internet ♪ – Hi folks I’m Bob Schrupp, physical therapist. – Brad Heineck, physical therapist. – And we are the most famous physical therapists on the internet. – In our opinion of course, Bob. Today this is interesting, we have a one minute exercise that predicts your risk of heart disease. It was done by Harvard and it was over 1000… Like 11000 actually firemen and they had them do this one exercise and then they followed them for many years after that to see how many of them had cardiovascular events like heart attacks or strokes or you know, some type of cardiovascular disease. – Sure. – And they found out that the people that did well at this had less events than the people who didn’t do well. – One exercise! – One exercise. – So if you wanna find out what it is hold on, hold on. We’re gonna show you. – That’s right. By the way if you’re new to our channel please take a second to subscribe to us.

We’re giving away a product and we’re doing the Sleep Ovation mattress. – Right. – 700 mattresses. This is just a little corner of a sample of the mattress. – Right. – Little teaser. But it’s also got the airflow channels, Brad. – There you go. – It keeps it cool. – Right. It all adds up Bob, for nice– – It’s comfortable. – Comfortable mattress. – It’s comfortable, I could take a nap right now. Alright well I’m gonna move this outta the way. – Now let’s get to that exercise Bob. – Alright. – We got them in suspense. – [Bob] That’s right. – Okay we’re back. We had a couple of little mic problems here but cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of mortality worldwide. So again we have a study, Harvard performed a study. 1000 firefighters, they’re trying to predict their risk of heart disease and cardiovascular events such as a heart attack. – Mmhmm. – So the one exercise is push ups. So they had these guys do as many push ups as they could do. They used a metronome for like 80 beats. – Okay. It turned out to be about a minute, so how many push ups could they do in a minute. They couldn’t rest for more than three beats, you know they couldn’t stop and just hold it. – Okay. – They had to keep going. So, they did this and they followed then the firemen for years after that and they found out that basically the answer is the more push ups you could do, the lower risk you had for cardiovascular disease. – Sure. – It’s no big surprise. But for example, for those that did less than 10 compared to those who did more than 40, the people who did more than 40 had a 96% chance less likely to have an incident. – That’s significant. – Yeah, it’s significant. In fact they were almost… You virtually had no chance of having an incident if you were able to do 40 push ups. – 40 in a minute? – Yeah, 40 in a minute. – Okay. – So you know what Brad, you know I gotta try it right? – Yes, yes. – So, I don’t have my equipment here. I’m already making an excuse but… (laughs) and I probably should warm up a little bit here guys. I could, you know. – Yes, stretch it a little bit. – I gotta get stretched out a little bit here. – Did you exercise this morning yet? – Well I ran this morning. – You did? – Yeah. – Well that’s a little warm up, course it’s 30 degrees out. – Yeah. – Which way, are you gonna do them this way or… – I’m gonna go this way just so I can… So I’m gonna count them off but you can count them off too. Just, are you ready to go? – [Brad] I’m ready Bob, are you ready? This is pressure. [Brad] Pressure, okay, let’s see what Bob can do. Here we go, ready. Up on the toes, G.I. push ups we’re doing. – 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14. Is this riveting? 15, 16, 17. – [Brad] Can he do it? You keep counting Bob. – 20, 1. – [Brad] Keep breathing. There you go. You don’t like to keep your head up? Bob doesn’t like that, that always bothers me. I like to keep your head up on a push up. I wonder what they did on the study. Bob’s getting tired now. He’s going good though, nice and strong. Nice triceps. – 40, 41. – [Brad] Alright! Nice work. – I’ll tell you that is a cardiovascular event though. I mean it does really tax your heart. – It would be interesting to see what your heart rate is right now. – Yeah. It’s probably 700 right now. – 700. (laughs) – So anyway, it’s a great exercise. It does work your core, works your strength, and it does work your heart. – Right, sure. – So, anyway I can’t say anything else I’m too tired. (laughs) – There’s a good testimony of getting your heart rate up in a minute. – Thanks for watching. – Woo, nice work Bob.
