First time commenting on here, but felt it should be pointed out. While it would be nice if a young female could push a small car, it would be nicer if some of the so called men passing by stopped and helped her. I'm not that chivalrous, but come on man!

In life every thing are possible if you are doing well job with pure heart and sincerity.In any work you are success but do work with sincerity..

In life every thing are possible.When time is wrong then you are luck are also wrong.People are change with time.

I think every man/woman should be allowed to put a bullet in some idiots head once a day, but only once so choose wise.

I prob would of been dead a long time ago ;)

Crass, I know.....

I agree with Matthew.....

Terri-Ann- Though I enjoy reading Esquire magazine when I am on a plane heading somewhere, I kinda think their target audience is mostly sissies...even though they are always writing about amazing studs on some crazy adventure....

if you can bench 405 punds, then your squat should be closer to 600 pounds. an ideal bench to squat ratio is typically 1:1.5. so your squat should be 1.5 times as your bench press. so, i say bench 400 punds, squat 600 pounds, and deadlift 600-700 pounds.

Every man should not have to call the police for every small matter. At what point did it become impossible to approach your next door neighbor (in a non-confrontational manner) and have a conversation about a barking dog, loud music, overhanging tree, etc. OK, that's my rant...Thanks for listening.

Perhaps it will seem like a minor thing, but if you are going to a shopping place where the parking lot is very full..not drive around and around trying to find a close parking spot, but park the car farther away and walk.

every able bodied adult should be able to:
lift a heavy load overhead
lift a heavy load from the ground
push a heavy load across a short distance
pull a heavy load across a short distance
carry a lighter load across a long distance
Run a few miles w/o having to stop
run up a flight of stairs or an uphill grade
carry a load up a flight of stairs or an uphill grade
jump onto a surface that's at least waist height
jump off of an equally high surface w/a safe landing.
pull themselves up to and over a plane or ledge.

I had to comment on this. My brother's (never lifts because he is too busy reading comic books and playing video games, 31 years old by the way) car died at a stoplight a few years ago, he couldn't push it out of the way. So, two 20-something girls pushed it for him while he sat in the car and steered. I was embarassed for him when he told me the story. Then I was pissed at him for not even getting a phone number out of the deal.

Esquire Magazine: 75 things a man should know
1. Give advice that matters in one sentence. I got run out of a job I liked once, and while it was happening, a guy stopped me in the hall. Smart guy, but prone to saying too much. I braced myself. I didn't want to hear it. I needed a white knight, and I knew it wasn't him. He just sighed and said: When nobody has your back, you gotta move your back. Then he walked away. Best advice I ever got. One sentence.
2. Tell if someone is lying. Everyone has his theory. Pick one, test it. 3. Take a photo. Fill the frame.
4. Score a baseball game.
5. Name a book that matters. The Catcher in the Rye does not matter. Not really. You gotta read.
6. Know at least one musical group as well as is possible.
7. Cook meat somewhere other than the grill.
8. Not monopolize the conversation.
9. Write a letter.
10. Buy a suit.
11. Swim three different strokes. Doggie paddle doesn't count.
12. Show respect without being a suck-up. Respect the following, in this order: age, experience, record, reputation. Don't mention any of it.
13. Throw a punch. Close enough, but not too close. Swing with your shoulders, not your arm. Long punches rarely land squarely. So forget the roundhouse. You don't have a haymaker. Follow through; don't pop and pull back. The length you give the punch should come in the form of extension after the point of contact. Just remember, the bones in your hand are small and easy to break. You're better off striking hard with the heel of your palm. Or you could buy the guy a beer and talk it out.
14. Chop down a tree. Know your escape path. When the tree starts to fall, use it.
15. Calculate square footage. Width times length.
16. Tie a bow tie.
17. Make one drink, in large batches, very well.
18. Speak a foreign language. Pas beaucoup. Mais faites un effort.
19. Approach a woman out of his league.
20. Sew a button.
21. Argue with a European without getting xenophobic or insulting soccer.
22. Give a woman an orgasm so that he doesn't have to ask after it.
23. Be loyal. You will fail at it. You have already. A man who does not know loyalty, from both ends, does not know men.
24. Know his poison, without standing there, pondering like a dope. Brand, amount, style, fast, like so: Booker's, double, neat.
25. Drive an eightpenny nail into a treated two-by-four without thinking about it.
26. Cast a fishing rod without shrieking or sighing or otherwise admitting defeat.
27. Play gin with an old guy.
28. Play go fish with a kid.
29. Understand quantum physics well enough that he can accept that a quarter might, at some point, pass straight through the table when dropped.
30. Feign interest. Good place to start: quantum physics.
31. Make a bed.
32. Describe a glass of wine in one sentence without using the terms nutty, fruity, oaky, finish, or kick.
33. Hit a jump shot in pool.
34. Dress a wound.
35. Jump-start a car (without any drama). Change a flat tire (safely). Change the oil (once).
36. Make three different bets at a craps table.
37. Shuffle a deck of cards.
38. Tell a joke.
39. Know when to split his cards in blackjack.
40. Speak to an eight-year-old so he will hear.
41. Speak to a waiter so he will hear. You don't own the restaurant, so don't act like it. You own the transaction. So don't speak into the menu. Lift your chin. Make eye contact. All restaurants have secrets -- let it be known that you expect to see some of them.
42. Talk to a dog so it will hear. Go ahead, use baby talk.
43. Install: a disposal, an electronic thermostat, or a lighting fixture without asking for help. Just turn off the damned main.
44. Ask for help.
45. Break another man's grip on his wrist. Rotate your arm rapidly in the grip, toward the other guy's thumb.
46. Tell a woman's dress size.
47. Recite one poem from memory.
48. Remove a stain. Blot. Always blot.
49. Say no.
50. Fry an egg sunny-side up. Cook until the white appears solid...and no longer.
51. Build a campfire.
52. Step into a job no one wants to do.
53. Sometimes, kick some ass.
54. Break up a fight.
55. Point to the north at any time.
56. Create a play-list in which ten seemingly random songs provide a secret message to one person.
57. Explain what a light-year is. It's the measure of the distance that light travels over 365.25 days.
58. Avoid boredom. You have enough to eat. You can move. This must be acknowledged as a kind of freedom. You don't always have to buy things, put things in your mouth, or be delighted.
59. Write a thank-you note.
60. Be brand loyal to at least one product.
61. Cook bacon.
62. Hold a baby.
63. Deliver a eulogy. Take the job seriously. It matters. Speak first to the family, then to the outside world. Write it down. Avoid similes. Don't read poetry. Be funny.
64. Know that Christopher Columbus was a son of a bitch.
65-67. Throw a baseball over-hand with some snap. Throw a football with a tight spiral. Shoot a 12-foot jump shot reliably.
68. Find his way out of the woods if lost.
69. Tie a knot.
70. Shake hands. Steady, firm, pump, let go. Use the time to make eye contact, since that's where the social contract begins.
71. Iron a shirt. Start rough, end gently.
72. Stock an emergency bag for the car.
73. Caress a woman's neck. Back of your fingers, in a slow fan.
74. Know some birds.
75. Negotiate a better price.

any alternatives for prowler push? I'm a recent follower who is deployed. I live in Fremont, California though :)

everyone should be able to bench press 405 lbs for 10 reps, squat 500 lbs for 10 reps and deadlift 600 lbs for 10 reps.

I totally agree with you that someone should be able to push their car. I am sure that it mostly amounts to insurmountable laziness.

I def agree!!!!!! i would do that if that happens to me :)

I would rather push that car to the gas station than do this workout!
