    Burpee challenge - fuelling

    Primal Fuel
    Tomorrow I'm taking part in a challenge that will see me complete some 700 burpees in a set. This will obviously take a while and I imagine I would want to do some refuelling as I go. Problem is, I'm also on a whole 30.

    Any tips on what to grab for a quick snack during the murder?
    Do what you love and do it often. If you don't like something, change it. if you don't like your job, quit. If you don't have enough time, stop watching tv. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop, they will be waiting for you when you start doing the things you love. Stop over analyzing, life is simple. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Some opportunities only come once, seize them.

    My only tip would be to take it easy.

    I pulled my back doing a burpee challenge.
    2010 - 5,11 and 101KG

    2012 - 5,11 and 77KG

    Train hard, eat well and love life

    They should be called "Pukeys" instead of "Burpees" if you're gonna do 700 of them.

    You are doing 700 by yourself? That sounds downright stupid, hope you dont tear something. You wont get through it without massive carbs.

    It won't be for time so they will be nice and controlled burpees, no need to go balls out. I've read of people doing upwards of 1000, I'll be fine!

    Under no illusions it will suck the life out of me, but it's a challenge and I'll follow through on it!

    I'd suggest you have a fruit smoothie + protein powder handy. Re-hydrate while you get essential carbs and protein.

    Would probably make me sicker more than the burpees will
