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.

TOTALS: 58,189 reps done across 14 Steemians in 40 workout days.

Cumulative Results: #'s vary with different start dates
@rmsbodybuilding = 21,584 reps (37.1%) - 40/40 days (20K+ reps!)
@thevillan = 12,154 reps (20.9%) - 20/40 (perfect attendance since starting)
@myleskshupe = 6,063 reps (10.4%) - 15/40
@steemmatt = 4,590 reps (7.9%) - 40/40
@povilas = 4,421 reps (7.9%) - 23/40
@lordcarlo297 = 2,416 reps (4.2%) - 14/40)
@xxlobo21xx = 1,944 reps (3.3%) - 8/40

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.

Awesome reps. I have to be fair that I have not counted reps from others who didn't post during the day, so I have to keep this consistent. You still won because you did the reps though. Nothing personal as you can tell. Thanks you very much for the shout out.

Daily Challenge Completed(245 reps)
Rest day.
Push ups 6x20reps(120reps)
Hollow Hold swings 5x25reps(125reps)

Thank you very much. I've never see hollow hold swings before, so I'm excited to try that out. Would also be great for grip strength.

Time to rest... Might need to go to the gym just to use different muscles. My body is exhausted from hitting it with the same exercises.

·

Great job getting through some serious reps today as well. I can imagine it was heavy.

Sounds like you've reached a healthy conclusion.

·

To think you consistently do 6x+ more reps than me and work a full time job..... sighhhh. Good work!

·
·

Lol I told you I was a machine ;)
though I'm debating having a night off tonight, it's over 40 degrees Celcius outside, the ride home on the moto almost killed me lol. like riding in a fan forced oven

·
·
·

Take the night off if you need to, or just do some light push-ups, lunges without weights and sit-ups in 10 minutes so your streak stays alive. Or take the night off... haha.

Haha I weigh 115 kgs so pushups aren't light for me lol.
Still busted out a small session ;)

Daily Challenge Completed - 100 reps:

  • Very slow yoga (40 min) (10)
  • 7+7+7+4+5 Push-ups (30)
  • 5x10 sec table (10)
  • 15x2 knee-pullups (30)

In other news, I wrote a motivational/instructional-article yesterday, about dealing with CTS. It is my hope that by reading it, others can have an easier road to recovery than I had.

I also want to take a moment voice my appreciation to everybody here, for the support and encouragment so far. It has meant a lot (a lot more than I thought it would, tbh) for my motivation to continue to push myself. A special thank you to @steemmatt for coming up with this awesome concept, and for following it up diligently, always looking for ways to improve it.

To healthier lives!

Saw your article. Thanks for this. My Mother is having issues with her hands, so maybe there's something she can take from it.

I'm just the guy who puts all the numbers together and does my reps. Everyone is overcoming their own obstacles or getting motivated in their own way, whether it's getting in shape or meeting like minded-individuals. Everyone is carrying their relative weight here to make this work for the group, and helping it to grow bigger.

I've never held myself accountable to work out religiously like this, except when playing organized sports years ago, and while the reps and weight are modest, my body is responding far better than I thought it would. I can't tell you how many times I didn't want to do the reps, but did them because I knew it'd be a massive contradiction to the message. I even did my reps a few times in the weirdest of circumstances that are hard to explain publicly, but I made sure my priority was hitting my goal no matter what.

In a few months, you'll forget what CTS means and be ready for a shirtless openmic music video.

·

It is true that we all have our own paths, obstacles and motivations, and I've certainly had my own share of days when I didn't want to complete at all. I find it interesting and very inspiring that I almost always do now. Looking very much forward to see where this project is a couple of months from now.

Ha ha we'll see about the shirtless part, but openmic is certainly closer than ever. Been practicing both the guitar and the flute a lot lately.

Thank you for forwarding my link, I hope she finds some information that can be useful to her.
