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.

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 - 120 reps:
-40 Bar Calf Raises (40) [one set]
-30 Shoulder Bar Presses (75 pounds)
-25 Behind Back Bar Wrist Curls (75 pounds)
-15 Shoulder Bar Raises (10 pounds)
-10 Bar Thrusters (75 pounds) [squat into shoulder press)
Daily Assessment: Staying fit can help keep your body young. When I'm in shape, people usually think I'm 5-7+ years younger. It really helps reinforce the work. Being fit also helps you give off more positive energy and shows that you're committed to your body and health, which can carry over to other elements in your life. Congrats to everyone involved, and I hope you're continuing to, or starting to, turn back the clock with these efforts. What we're doing is preventative too.
Ate a decent portion of chicken and 5 eggs with onions. Have a few beers for the NFL playoff games and a poker night. About two more weeks until I go to the gym for the first time since Jan 11, 2017.
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.
