Steemit Daily 100+ Rep Fitness Challenge Day # 32 - 1/7/18 (Total Team Reps: 37,140)

in fitness •  2 years ago  (edited)

8 Steemians today (new record!) for 2,064 reps combined!

Here are pics comparing Day 32 vs Day 1, after 32 consecutive days of 100+ reps.

It's nothing major, but I see some progress and definitely feel it. After not going to the gym or lifting for almost a year, my goal for the first month was just to wake my body up at home. I lifted light weights consistently, without burning myself out, which was true to plan. For the next 30 day cycle, I'll look to lift heavier with more exercise variety beyond using a bar, push-ups and sit-ups. I'll also start cutting down on carbs to tone up, as I loaded up on them to make sure I had enough energy for the start of this process.

32 DAYS OF WORKOUTS (3,650 REPS) - 1/7/18:

More people are joining simply because they've SEEN this blog series, and wish they saw it sooner. In the spirit of helping others be healthy and join a supportive team, please help us by resteeming for visibility.

Forget resolutions. You know that exercise is important, so start with just one day of sharing 100 reps and go from there. We support each other every day and we'll support you, so why not give it a try?

These people are creating their own original posts to prove their hard work. Please support their dedication with encouragement!

TOTALS: 37,140 reps done across 10 Steemians in 31 workout days. We're growing!

Cumulative Results:
@rmsbodybuilding = 17,954 reps (48.3%) - 31/31 days (the champ)
@thevillan = 6,670 reps (18.0%) - 11/31 (perfect attendance since starting)
@myleskshupe = 3,779 reps (10.2%) - 10/31 (watch his time-lapse vids)
@steemmatt = 3,540 reps (9.5%) - 31/31 (training wheels off soon)
@povilas = 2,747 reps (7.4%) - 16/31 (12 days in a row)
@lordcarlo297 = 1,100 reps (3.0%) - 6/31 (delivering as promised)
@mightpossibly = 669 reps (1.8%) - 7/31 (nursing an injury but back!)
@ninjamike = 422 reps (1.1%) - 2/31 (lots of pull-ups!)
@xced2806 = 158 reps (0.4%) - 1/31 (come back)
@dj123 = 101 reps (0.3%) - 1/31 (come back)

The Challenge: At least 100 honest reps of exercise every day. No excuses. No bullsh*t. Just actions, positivity, and results. Only post AFTER your reps are done.

  • If you can't contribute yet, try to eat natural foods and stay well hydrated without the sugar for now.

  • It's ok to start with a number you're comfortable with if you can't reach 100.

  • 30 minutes of dedicated walking or running can count as 100 reps if you're unable to lift or need to rest.

  • Please also support these participants for their commitment to their physical and mental health. Thank you.

Daily Challenge Completed - 110 reps:

-40 Forearm Bar Curls (75 pounds)
-30 Bicep Bar Curls (75 pounds)
-20 Bar Back Rows (75 pounds)
-15 Shoulder Bar Presses (75 pounds)
-5 Bar Shrugs (75 pounds)

Daily Assessment: Feeling good. I really need to start doing different types of exercises outside of the bar, sit-ups, and push-ups. I need to start doing more isolated tricep work and lateral/front shoulder work. I'll be using the cables on my Bowflex Revolution for this soon.

Feedback from @mightpossibly:

"I'd also like to add that I find it deeply satisfying to do these reps, which is a big deal. I've always hated the gym and prefer to exercise at home. But I've lacked the discipline to do it. It sort of feels like I have gym buddies now, without the hassle of going to the gym."

Please see my first post linked below for my motivation, the challenge background, rules, and details for the Steemit Silver Coin prize! It's also got some personal stuff about why I'm doing this, so it could be a good motivator.

Congrats @steemmatt! I can see some progress.

Seeing this post motivates me to restart my fitness regime.

Good advice, and I'd definitely like to cut out the sugar!

Thanks! @soul-thru-da-ink

Thanks a lot for your support. 100 reps will be done before you know it and we'll help keep you on track. My post was half deleted by error when you upvoted, so feel free to revisit it to see all of the elements where they should be. Even if you want to start with walking or running, that counts.

Join us, you know you want too ;)

Tempting guys! :)

I'm in!
Daily challenge completed:

  • 30 minute run
  • 60 back rows (25kg)
  • 60 shoulder presses (30kg)
  • 90 bicep curls (8 kg)

First workout of the year so started light... still hurts!
Feels great though!

Do mine eyes doth deceive me!?! Welcome to the club.

...In this case, I'll happily learn how to start converting KG to LB in my head. Just don't start referencing the weight in Stones or anything crazy.

A 30 minute run counts for 100 reps, so I'll put down 310. Solid start.

On the weekends I will do conversions in my post, but during the week I barely get time to scratch my arse lol

Hah, that's ok. I was just kidding around. It's on me to be more global.

lol. would be good to know how many pounds I lift also :)

Easing into the first few weeks is always a wise choice :)
Welcome to the challenge

Squats- 30
Leg press- 30
Calf leg press- 30
Weighted lunges-30
Seated leg curl- 30
Laying down leg curls-30
Calf raises- 30

Wow you attacked your legs from every angle except shaving them! Nice job.

If you could just add them up for me going forward it'll save me some time when I put the tallies together for the team. 180 registered.

Got it!! And yes! Absolutely destroyed them haha.

Daily challenge completed - 120 reps

Welcome back to the show back to back days. Congrats on the pull-ups - 1 set? Also, a new max reps for you by 10.

Thank you, it feels great to be able to exercise again. The knee-pullups was divided into 3 sets. Ideally should probably be 2, but yeah. And it was knee-pullups, not "real" pull-ups :)

Great work m8, I can see the difference. I like the idea of taking snapshots in the same position, think I will do the same every month to see progress :)

8 steemians too, woop woop :D

@thevillan - You getting you post in for today? I'm going to launch the next one shortly...

just replied then, damn computer decided to do updated this morning and failed so I couldn't post :(

Teamwork... I held back to make sure you didn't break the streak.

Thanks m8 :)
I knew I would be cutting it close

Nice man, definitely seeing some improved muscle definition and once you drop the carbs a bit they'll be popping even more. Good job Matt.

Yea, it's tough to see how bad I let myself get, but cool to reverse the trend. Clothes are fitting much tighter in the right spots, so once I fine tune the diet (aka not eating 4-6 servings of whole wheat pasta at a time cringe), it'll all level off. I typically don't mind the extra weight for baseball because it gives me more power behind my swing, but the muscle I rebuild will not want to be hiding behind any extra layers...
