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, so please support their passion and dedication.

TOTALS: 62,467 reps done across 16 Steemians in 42 workout days.

@rmsbodybuilding = 22,160 reps (36.0%) - 42/42 days (20K+ reps!)
@thevillan = 12,914 reps (20.7%) - 22/42 (perfect attendance since starting)

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.

My Daily Challenge Completed - 115 reps:

-35 Bar Thrusters (75 pounds) [Squat & Shoulder Press Combo]
-25 Bar Shrugs (75 pounds)
-45 Overhead Two-Handed Tricep Hammer Plate Press (25 pounds)
-10 Reverse Forearm Bar Curls (75 pounds)


Daily Assessment: @rmsbodybuilding recommended two exercises for me in a video in his last post that I'm going to try to do. He makes it look easy since he's a professional, so it was harder for me. My shoulders were beat from previous days so I started with 35 reps of thrusters to get the feel. Given my floor situation at home, I'm hesitant to throw plates in the air (second recommended exercise), but baseball > floors. My body feels pumped all day, so that's nice, but a little weird to get used to. I guess this is what happens when you work out 42 straight days in a row after almost a year of nothing. Oops.

Also happy to see two new names making entries, one from Australia and the other from Germany. It's nice to see this expand around the world, probably because I was not into social media much before Steemit.


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.

I just did 50 situps and 50 pushups last night.
Was a really nice night to take the moto for a spin so decided to take my beloved for a night out on the town :D

It's back to business later though ;)
