I Attempted That Viral TikTok Challenge That ‘Men Can’t Do’ And ~ Spoiler ~ I Ate Shit

TikTok Balance Challenge

I knew upon my first viewing of Charlie’s Angels (2000) that women were, in every interpretation of the word, better than men. Check the author name. Yes, I am a man, but I’ve yet to see anyone take a motorcycle helmet off with as much power as Lucy Liu did, so yeah. Anyway, my point here is, there’s a brand new TikTok challenge, and only women can do it. Literally.

When I saw this challenge, known as the balance challenge, I had to immediately try it out with my housemate, because it was way too unbelievable. A challenge that leaves every man who attempts it on their face? What?

First of all, iconic, but secondly, what the fuck mother nature. I do not want my face pushed into the ground. Unless, of course, I have specifically asked for such treatment from a consenting gentleman.

So what the hell is the challenge? Well, basically you need to get into a knee push up position (like a dog essentially) and then put your hands behind your back and balance yourself. Yeah, it sounds easy as hell, but men just physically cannot do it. It has something to do with the centre of gravity, which for women around the hips-knees area, but for men is apparently much higher.

The end result?  A bunch of guys marrying their face to the floor, and a bunch of women floating above the ground like the goddesses they are. It’s thoroughly entertaining.

When I tried it with my housemate we both used pillows, which I thoroughly recommend. Some of you will hit the floor, and some of you will not. It’s just science babes.

Check out some TikTok vids of guys becoming acquainted with the floor.

Now I know why they say that men have hard heads. Not only are they thick, and don’t understand much, but they are also just heavy. Curse me and my head that just cannot stay away from the ground.

If this wasn’t enough proof that men are weaker than women, I have no idea what to tell you.

Now go forth my friends, and make sure you do the balance challenge with some guys! Make them kiss the ground!
