The movement was started by Honor Courage Commitment, Inc. in 2013, and is meant to draw attention to the fact that, according to a 2012 Suicide Data Report, an average of 22 veterans die by suicide everyday.
Participants of the 22 Push-Up Challenge are encouraged to record and share a video of themselves doing their push-ups. Naturally, Lopez obliged.
“Extra” shared a video (seen above) of the father-son duo completing the challenge Tuesday.
Lopez and his son join a growing list of celebrities who have taken the challenge, including Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Chris Pratt, Anna Faris, John Krasinski, Chris Evans and Kevin Hart. And the 42-year-old “Extra” host is doing his part to make sure others join the ranks.
Lopez posted a video of himself taking on the challenge, again, on Instagram Wednesday.
“[Scott] Bakula challenged me to the 22 Push-Up Challenge, and then I’m gonna challenge someone else,” he explained.
After completing the challenge, this time on his own, and dressed in full police gear on the set of “NCIS: New Orleans,” Lopez nominated actor Michael Weatherly to do the same.
