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.

You know that exercise is important, so start with just one day of sharing 100 reps of your choice 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!

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. You choose what exercises to do.

  • 30 minutes of dedicated brisk 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 - 125 reps:

-80 Bar Shoulder Presses (75 pounds)
-45 Bar Shrugs (75 pounds)

Daily Assessment: I ate lean again today with sauteed kale and onion, 9 eggs with onions, and some chicken breast, but I was starving at night and had to have a bowl of whole wheat pasta. Drinks: water and orange juice. I worked out what was the least sore/tired on my body.

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.

Challenge Completed
45 Minutes Spinning

@steemmatt I'm from Aruba bro.

Rep On Fam!

I'm recording this as 100 reps for the more than 30 minutes of spinning (I'll update the main posts to add spinning since that's intense). I believe I count 275 other reps. I think you meant to count the squats/high knees/butt kickers as a combo rep, so sorry if I read that wrong. 375 total reps scored. Nice!

yes @steemmett thanks I forgot to add it up

Dang bro. Your shoulders burn enough? Lol good workout.

It's actually not that bad for me. The weight isn't heavy, but the burning definitely comes from using them constantly without any rest day after day.

Love this idea may start to participate!

No reason not to!

Nice one m8 hope your feeling better now :)

Daily Challenge Completed(?)

  • Walked for a total of 45 minutes in total snow chaos
  • Helped a friend move for 3 1/2 hours. A big bed, a big couch and loads of boxes, out of old apartment and into a new one.

Photo from a bus stop in down-town Oslo this afternoon:

It was a great day to move a lot of stuff.

I think that counts as challenge completed. moving house is a workout in it self

After consulting with the fitnesschallenge panel and holding a vote, we have elected to honor 100 exercise reps for this effort. Lifting furniture and boxes like that is a 5x multiplier.
