7,586 Reps From 9 Steemians After 20 Days - The Steem Daily 100 Rep Fitness Challenge - 50 Push-ups & 50 Squats - Day 21

in fitnesschallenge •  11 days ago 

I was so tempted to go to bed with only 50 reps done, but I stood up, did a set of 25 push-ups and a set of 25 squats, then posted this proudly before dozing off.

Day 20 Overview: 300 reps from 3 Steemians that completed the challenge.

Let's grow this healthy community now by spreading the word and contributing some reps. This is for your health.


To people new, see the kickoff post linked below. We'll be opening up to other exercise types in due time. I'm trying to keep this simple for now to get everyone assembled and on the same page.

What's the challenge? 50 push-ups (modified if needed) and 50 air squats. See my video. If you want to do a different ratio or split, that's fine. Just reach 100 reps from these options and reply below with an affirmation, pic, link, or video. We're on the honor system.

If you can't do all of the push-ups, I know you can do squats for the rest. Get involved!


My Reps: 50 push-ups & 50 squats.

Chest has lots of energy, but my legs feel well worked. I walked a lot last night and also lifted some heavy recycled finds (165 pounds, 58 pounds and ~30 pounds for just 3 free valuable items!

I need to start adding some pull exercises, so I did 11 bicep curls on my 75 pound bar to get the blood flowing. I'll start doing 22-33 curls a few times a week now.

Dinner was hummus with wheat crackers, orange juice, coconut water, kefir, and bean sprouts in olive oil and sea salt. Lean and mean!!

To any interested Steemians who want more info/background: *Please see this link from the kickoff post for details.

Everyone please support and encourage the team here. They're working hard to build a community the hard way. It's about the bigger picture.

Make sure you go 90 degrees with your elbows and legs, with your back straight, on each rep. Don't have your elbows too wide on the floor. Feel free to help others if they look like that can use some advice.

Again, this is just a baseline of activity for the day. This will be far from all I do on most days, and the same can go for you.


Markets and spirits may be down now, but our health should always be on the rise.

We don't always need an app and tokens for everything, or to worry about things we can't control.

Worry about what we can control. Let's put the human back into fitness here, and you will see and feel results.

Rep on,
@steemmatt
