Maddie Challenges Gazelle to the Gravity Challenge
It’s hard to keep up with the latest viral trend on TikTok, but the latest trend caught my eye because I felt confident I could actually do this one. It doesn't require an intricate dance or elaborate voice-over; it just requires one male and one female, and I had the perfect male in mind for the Gravity Challenge.
The Gravity Challenge is spreading around TikTok after someone realized that men and women have different centers of gravity. I had to know if it was true.
Ryan Glatt, a psychometrist at the Pacific Neuroscience Institute at Providence Saint John's Health Center, spoke with Shape.com and said, “Because women tend to have larger hips than men, they will have lower centers of gravity," he says. Men, on the other hand, tend to "have more distributed centers of gravity."
Once I got my facts in order, it was time to surprise Gazelle with this challenge. We are both extremely competitive, but I knew something he didn’t – I would win solely on genetics.
With the camera rolling, I told him to get on his knees with his hands to the floor, then put his elbows to the floor, then lift his arms behind his back.
I did it with ease. Gazelle, however, couldn’t even lift off the ground.
Maddie,1, Gazelle, 0.
This challenge has nothing to do with size, but rather your genetic makeup. I knew Gazelle wouldn’t be able to do it, but the chance to get him to face plant on TikTok was far too enticing.
Ladies, try it out for yourself and challenge a man in your life. Trust me, it will be video-worthy.
