******************************************************************************************************

STARTS ON  JANUARY 1, 2013!

The Rules:

Do one burpee on Day One. Do two burpees on Day Two. Continue adding one more burpee each day. By the end you will have done 5050 burpees (that’s a lot!).

If you miss a day, you can make up that day’s burpee count the following day. If you miss two days in a row, consider your challenge to be over, take a couple days off and start again at Day One. You can do it!

Follow the rules and most importantly:

Don’t Miss Any Days

I missed Day 7 which meant on Day 8 I had to do a total of 15. That wasn’t too bad, but I told myself I’d never make that mistake again. Then a couple days later, life got a little hectic and I missed another day. That meant once again, I had to make up for the previous day before doing the current day. The goal is to add one burpee a day, every day. Missing a day throws off everything. Imagine missing Day 90. This challenge will build strength and discipline.

One Day at a Time

The 100-Day Burpee Challenge is slow and steady all the way.  The only way to do it, is one day at a time.

Are you in?

The 100-Day Burpee Challenge is not for babies; there are no days off. As far as I know, crying is not allowed. But if doing 75 burpees one day, followed by 76 the next day, followed by 77 the next day sounds like fun to you, I hope you’ll join CFYV on this adventure.

What’s a Burpee?

A burpee is like a pushup on crack.

  1. Start in a low squat, hands flat on the floor in front of you.
  2. Jump your feet back so that you’re in a high push-up position.
  3. Complete a full push-up.
  4. Jump feet back to the starting squat position.
  5. Spring up off the ground and clap your hands over your head.

That’s one.

The key is to focus on form. Getting into a solid push-up position each time makes a big difference.

Burpees have a reputation for building strength and character while torching body fat. I like the sound of that.

    I did my day 1 burpee late last night on the living room floor after being cozy on the couch all evening. Today I did 2 as soon as I stepped foot in the box. I pray for the strength and dedication to follow through on all 100 days. I really hope to see people’s comments and videos posted here throughout the next 98 days.

    Day 13 I love that my 7 year old is excited to keep up on this challenge with my hubby and I.

    Ah man! I just realized I could’ve gotten a prize for doing them in Ohio, if only I had proof!
