CLEVELAND — The coronavirus outbreak has shut down countless activities that Americans perhaps took for granted. Everything from going out to eat at a favorite restaurant, to attending sporting events, to working out. With so many gyms and rec departments closed across the country, many people are using Instagram, Twitter and Facebook to challenge friends and co-workers to the #PushUpChallenge. 

On Sunday, Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield joined the new craze.

Mayfield was challenged by his teammate, wide receiver Jarvis Landry and posted himself doing 25 push-ups to the song "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough" by Michael Jackson. By the end of the short video clip, Mayfield challenged Baltimore Ravens tight end Mark Andrews, his former Oklahoma teammate, along with actors Mark Wahlberg and Jamie Foxx. 

The #PushUpChallenge has become a popular way for friends and co-workers to help each other stay fit and bring awareness to fitness while gyms and local rec centers remain closed due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

Mayfield appeared to be a good sport about the challenge and even apologized for his wild-looking hair during the push-ups.
