  • Burpee Challenge!

    I started yesterday, plan on finishing November 7.

    Here's the jist:

    Day 1- do one burpee
    Day 2- do two burpees...

    Day 99- 99 burpees
    Day 100- 100 burpees to be done

    Missed days have to be made up. So don't skip any, or you'll be really sorry.
    There's still plenty of time to "buy in" and join the fun!

        Had to investigate exactly what a burpee is. Looks like a version of the old "bend and thrust" that my USMC drill instructors in boot camp used as punishment for our platoon if we screwed up, but without a leap at the end. (30+ years ago, BTW...)

        I can immediately see the value of the burpee for strength, endurance, and power. Think I'm gonna figure out the best place to work it into my routine to some degree. Under the OP's challenge, at first it would be a novelty movement in conjunction with my other exercises. At some point it would have to become a workout unto itself...

          My karate Sensei loves making us do them, and man; they're worse then push-ups, sit-ups and squats put together!!

          But...okay I'm in!

                I would think that a modified one would be fine. The idea is to get strong and really good at burpees.

                  My mantra is quickly turning into "I LOVE BURPEES YES I DO!"

                    Hating burpees means that you really need them!

                      Look up "8 count body builders." My father used to do them in the Navy, and they are a kick-a$$ workout to say the least. I know SEALS use them as well. I think I"ll try this as well

                          I will join as well! Mine will be modified at first, but it's better than nothing!

                              I'm doing the 666 workout, would doing this Burpee challenge be doing to much. I know it wouldn't be to much at first but towards the end I think it would turn into a workout all it's own. What about doing it on my off days. I would like to do it but don't want to overdo it either.
