    I have decided to do the 100 Day Burpee Challenge and invite all you to join. The first day will be Friday, April 3. The rules:

    1. Use Burgener's burpee standards for form (check out the official standards and the demonstration video).
    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 on day 1 (April 3), 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.

    Let's see if we can get through this :)

    Sign me up. I do them regularly, but not 100 at a time. I'm going to need to be able to do a ton of them eventually anyway, so I might as well get started now.

    I take it that even though we can buy in, we can't bank any i.e. do more than required then cash them in for days we slack or miss, correct?

    Right. The idea is to do at least the prescribed number of burpees each day. You can certainly do more, but they don't count towards the challenge.

    Haha, no desire to get up to 100 burpees. Best of luck though.

    We did a body weight WOD today, it was brutal and fun!

    "Broomstick Mile" (all with PVC):

    25 front squats
    25 back squats
    25 OH squats
    Run 400m
    25 OH press
    25 push press
    25 push jerk
    Run 400m
    50 cleans
    Run 400m
    50 snatches
    Run 400m

    Then I did my 2 burpees after I stopped gasping for air. :)
