This thread has always kind of bothered me. I started this diabolical regimen a few times, but never saw it through. SOTB's passing made me think of this thread, in particular. He completed this, no big deal(page 25) while countless others(myself included) never posted day 100.

Day 1: One Burpee

This thread is over three years old and I never looked at it until today because I thought it had something to do with gardening, which I totally suck at. Burpee is the name of a company that makes flower seeds. I had never heard the term used to describe an exercise before. I am now ignorant of one less thing, but I've still got 64,216 things I'm still stupid about. The first 63,000 or so are related to trying to understand women.

Day 1: One Burpee

Keep in mind that this was his SECOND time doing this shit. A bunch of us did this years ago ('08-'09?) and a few us completed it, and he somehow got motivated to do it again - which this thread chronicles. The original thread is gone.

Shit, I remember starting this with a 24" box jump until it just got too stupid, and he used some concrete block in some park in Mexico that was 26". Kids laughing at him and shit. haha

Around the same time, he and mdb (where is that guy?) worked up some fucking hellish workout of doing 100 burpees on the 24" box in 20 minutes. And, of course you try to beat everyone else's time. That was just miserable. The dude was a stud.

Good on you, Gumby, for taking this on in his honor. Right on.

I'll throw in for this, too. I won't bore y'all with the daily progress.

I'll just report success or failure on or about day 100 (which I track is 20160902).

Maybe a halfway report, too.

If SOTB's old ass can do it, maybe I can, too.
