Watch this Air Force team do push-ups at 20,000 feet | Task & Purpose

Must Read

Last month on the snow-capped summit of Denali, the highest point in North America, Air Force Lt. Col Rob Marshall and his comrades got down on their hands and knees and churned out 20 pushups. Although many people would not have to do pushups after hiking 20,310 feet of heavy snow, it was a walk in the park compared to the struggle the pilots had just endured. The test includes a five-hour ascent across a near-vertical layer of snow, an urgent bivouac at 19,500 feet when a mountaineer nearly perished from severe altitude illness, and a chopper rescue, which is one of the most daring moves ever undertaken by local National Park Service Rangers.
