We are going to do the 100 day Burpee Challenge.
Several other CrossFit affiliates have done this one. Now it is our turn. Let’s see how consistent we can be. The rules and explanations of Burpees I have listed below (including the pix) are from CrossFit Santa Cruz.
Train your weakness. Work on the things you you don’t like to do. Everyone hates burpees, so lets get going on this challenge.
100 Day Burpee Challenge Details
100 Day Burpee Challenge. Beginning Monday, January 19, 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!
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
5. Have fun doing burpees and getting stronger doing it!
Burpee Challenge Form Standards: 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, we 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.
