In case you were wondering, Ethan Swanson is still doing backflips. The seven-time American Ninja Warrior competitor has been doing a backflip a day for about two and a half years. Today (April 29) marked his 1,000th day of backflips. We feel a little nauseous just thinking about that, but this isn't about us.

Congratulations, Ethan!

At this point, where has Ethan NOT done a backflip? He’s backflipped inside. He’s backflipped outside. He’s backflipped on American Ninja Warrior. Ethan’s dedication to the backflip has never waivered.

His fellow Ninjas celebrated his milestone on social media. Nick Hanson sent a shoutout.

Jamie Rahn was impressed.

So what’s the goal of all this backflipping? MORE BACKFLIPS.

Ethan makes it look very easy. Don’t be fooled. Backflips are hard.

And a little dangerous.

We wish Ethan and his backflips a long and happy future together!
