100 Day Burpee Challenge. Beginning Sun April 24th , we are going to do one burpee on day one and add one each day until we get to 100 burpees on the 100th day!
Feel free to invite anyone else to join, the more the better
1. Use Burgener’s burpee standards for form (see examples below)
2. You can complete each day’s burpees all at once, or broken up and done at different times throughout the day
3. If for some reason you miss a day, you have to make up all the missed burpees the following day
4. If you don’t start the challenge with us today, you can “buy-in” at any time by doing ALL the missed day’s burpees on your first day
5. Any burpees you complete during your regular workout can count towards that day’s Challenge burpees, if you want them to
6. For performance tracking purposes, the 25 burpees, 50 burpees, 75 burpees and 100 burpees days will be timed
7. Have fun doing burpees and getting stronger doing it!
The following form standards and photos are courtesy of CrossFit Santa Cruz:
Step 1: Start with hands on the ground in front of your feet. Keep your back straight.
Step 2: 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.
Step 3: 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.
Step 4: Push up into the top of the push-up position again.
Step 5: Jump your feet up to your hands into your starting position.
Step 6: 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.
