100 day Burpee challenge

I am doing a 100day burpee challenge. 1 burpee on day one, 2 burpees on day 2, etc. Anyone want to try this along with me?

I can't count that high, but I'll add to my workout. Does anybody still do 21 down?

For me it was today. If you want to start tomorrow and be on the same schedule you could just do 3 (1 for today and 2 for tomorrow). No time like now.

No, but you could say you started on the 16th and do 5 tomorrow.

I stopped in the middle of my run and did 6. I'm probably going to hate you for this before it's over.

You will. A few of us did this a few years ago. It gets really fun around day 60 and just keeps getting better.

PS: What happened to mdb?

So it's day 2? I'm in! I've gotta give up running for a bit due to PF. Sounds like this will suck in a month or so. So how could I resist!!
RLTW!

I do them anyway, this is about support, so jump in if you have the sack. My 9yo son has committed to it in addition to our morning workout.

If my abacus is correct it should calculate out somewhere around 100 days, unless you are using the Myan calender, in that case you should already be dead.

So is a 1 burpee one rep of the four count movement?

You have 100 days to complete the Challenge. You can miss a day (or days) but you must make all up missed days NLT the 100th day. For example, if you miss days 78 and 79, on day 80 you must do 237.

No time limit on sets. You can spread the required number throughout the day.

See how much fun this can be?
