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 passion and dedication.

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, running, or SPINNING (new) can count as 100 reps if you're unable to lift or need to rest.
Daily Challenge Completed - 110 reps:
-40 Bar Calf Raises (75 pounds) - these really hurt
-20 Bicep Bar Curls (75 pounds) - biceps spent
-20 Bar Squats (75 pounds) - legs spent
-15 Forearm Bar Curls (75 pounds) - double spent
-15 Back Bar Rows (75 pounds) - back fine, arms done
Daily Assessment: My entire body is sore and tired as hell. I ate very lean today with a pound of ground turkey, .72 lbs of natural chia seed cubes, and popcorn (bar trivia necessity). Drinks were coconut water, water, and a Kombucha multi-green tea.
Got some good tips from @rmsbodybuilding regarding not locking up my hips and core when doing workouts in the future to not hinder strength development for my upcoming baseball season. Squats and deadlifts are the recipe per his sage advice. Now waiting for my bill in the mail! I also wore a shirt today I haven't put on in months and it was fitting well again, finally.
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.
