UFC Fighter Chad Mendes — Watch Me Turn This Push-Up … INTO A BACKFLIP!

We”ve all seen athletes do regular push ups. And clapping push ups. And diamond push-ups … but have you ever seen anyone do BACKFLIP PUSH-UPS!

Meet UFC fighter Chad Mendes … who showed off his acrobatic workout skills at a media event for his upcoming fight against Nik Lentz at “UFC on Fox 9” in December.

For good measure, Chad also knocks out a “clapping behind the back” push-up.

Last time we saw anyone pull off push-ups like these … was right before we turned off “Don”t Mess with the Zohan.”
