Martin Prado is strong, shows up Phillie Phanatic in push-up contest

I never would have guessed it, but it turns out that the portly, fuzzy, egg-shaped Phillie Phanatic is a fitness nut.

But even if the Phanatic has got some serious upper body strength, he never should have taken on Martin Prado in a push-up contest.

My arms are sore just watching that. 

Maybe the Phanatic and Prado should team up for a series of workout DVDs. I would get so buff while watching them.
