WORKOUT 13 of 50 for Walk Across America and WORKOUT 13 of 50 for Step Across America.
It was a hot 90-degree day when we filmed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. We set up with the famous Rocky Steps from the Rocky I and Rocky III movie in the background. There were many people working out on these stairs in the heat as well.
The funeral of George Floyd had taken place a few days before, and tensions were high. There were 3 police vehicles parked to my right watching the area. It was so hot that I drank 4 bottles of Powerade to stay hydrated. I dug super deep to push through filming these workouts. This place reminded me of my father. He loved the Rocky Movies when he was alive!
After filming we went to Pat’s King of Steaks. The guys all got their famous Philly cheesesteaks sandwiches. I didn’t have much of an appetite, but the guys said they were yummy.
We went back to the hotel which was in New Jersey, to rest. We headed back to New Jersey to film a few more workout shots that evening that we couldn’t get the night before.
