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.

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?

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