    I'm catching up day 40, 41, 42, and 43. Long weekend of drinking with old military buddies. God, I need not to let this happen again. Did a little over 50 this morning, will do about 50 after lunch, the rest after work. Really, it'll all be sort of continuous.

    I was an exact definition of a burpee by your standards... i think they may have been different then mine

    Start in the standing position
    Squat down
    Place hands on floor
    Explode legs out behind you
    <Insert if we are doing a push up or spreading legs>
    Bring legs back to squat position
    Explode upward into a jump off the floor
    Repeat

    Caught up again - 44. It's the recovery from every day in a row that's killing me now, but I am noticing improvements.

    Pavel and his grease the groove is awesome and obviously this challenge has it's bases in it. The Marines are also a prime example of it. Pull up bars are everywhere on USMC bases and Marines are on them all the time for no good reason. The results are a community whom are far above average on pull ups. When ever I get around to finishing my guide to pull ups I will be reference Pavel and his grease the groove among others with a bunch of good tips/tricks and methods.

    I want to use Burgener's burpee standards for form (see explanation below)

    One
    Start with hands on the ground in front of your feet. Keep your back straight.

    Two
    Kick feet out behind you into the top of the push-up portion of the burpee. Your body should be straight and tight in a flat plank.

    Three
    Lower your body into the lowest part of a push-up. Your chest and thighs should ultimately touch the ground at the same time. Remember to keep your whole body, especially your midline, tight. While throwing your body on the ground and therefore touching both chest and thighs to the ground is acceptable by some standards, I feel that more is to be gained from doing a strict push-up in this Challenge.

    Four
    Push up into the top of the push-up position again.

    Five
    Jump your feet up to your hands into your starting position.

    Six
    Jump into the air and clap your hands overhead so that your ear is exposed in front of your arms. Your feet should leave the ground.

    At least do day 50!!!! and say you made it half way. I was thinking, you could do 50 tomorrow and then drop back down to day 1 and continue to follow along with us. When whoever is left hits day 100, you'll be hitting day 50 x2. It would allow for some good recovery time and I would be interested in how it feels for you going through it again. All other rules would still apply.

    How about it? Instead of ending it, just modify it.

    On another note, I'm going into the field for training tomorrow for a few days. Hopefully I can find something to do my pull ups on or I'll have a crap ton to do when I get back. I don't know the area we I am going to, but we'll be doing military over urban terrain (MOUT) training, which means there will be training buildings and that means maybe there will be something I can hang onto.

    We've all got different fitness goals, so if the pullups are interrupting your plans then I can't blame you for quitting. Lucky for me, I've worked it out so I can continue for awhile longer. Well see when we hit the 70s!

    Good luck, guys.

    I was out of town on the weekend with no ability/time to do them. I'll have to find out the #'s I missed for Sat/Sun/Mon. I did 80 on Tuesday, not knowing how many I needed that day nor how many to catch up. (It's on my computer at home).

    Not sure if I can go on, unless I spread my catch-ups through the rest of the week up to the weekend. Getting extremely tough for me. Due to my schedule atm, I haven't been able to spread them out either and have to do them in a short span of time.

    On a good note, I did do 30 in a row yesterday (utilizing kip ups, not locking out my arms and bouncing momentum, lol).

    Just got out of the field, been shooting for the past 3 days. I managed to find the side edges of stair/ladders and crap to do mondays and tuesdays on, but I'm too exhausted to do todays and had no time. All the Marines I was think I'm nuts now, hahaha because on our breaks and down time I would be doing my sets instead of chiling. They all want me to come to there unit, kick there Corpsman's ass and be theirs. Hahaha, makes a guy feel good inside you know.

    I think I'm going to buy a pull up bar for the door way at home. I think that will make it easier to do them in the morning before I hit the field and then save my workout for later. Someone told me they're only $19.99 at Walmart, does anyone know?

    I got mine for around that same price at a fitness store, but I'm up in Canada.

    If yours is anything like mine, I recommend some extra foam padding for where the padded bars press against the door frame. I'm using pipe insulation. I left some indents on there, although you might not have the same problem since you're a 'little bit' lighter than me

    I bought the Iron Gym from Bed, Bath, and Beyond for 28 or 30 bucks. I've been quite pleased with it.
