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


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.
