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. Always support each other.

  • You choose what types of exercise reps to do.
  • 30 minutes of fitness walking, running, spinning, biking, cross-country skiing, etc., can count as 100 reps if you need to rest or can't use weights.

  • I run the numbers daily which is sometimes harder than my reps.

Conditions:

  • Weights not required.
  • Do real reps with good form, aiming for 100+.
  • Start your reply with "Challenge Completed".
  • Reply with a list of the exercises and reps you did.
  • Cumulative tallies are appreciated as a separate line.
  • Only submit reps you've done, not ones you're planning to do.
  • Use the tag "fitnesschallenge" on associated posts.
  • Upvoting or resteeming is appreciated to reach more.

Advice:

  • Stretch before and after exercise.
  • Breathe properly on each rep.
  • Quality over quantity.
  • Eat a healthy snack after and stay hydrated.
  • Start with exercises you enjoy to build up for harder ones.
  • Take before pictures to appreciate results over time.

Feedback from @mightpossibly:

"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."

Feedback from @notorious562:

"I seriously cannot explain how much this group pushes and motivate me to keep working harder. I love this fitness community and the support and encouragement will help us achieve our goals."

Feedback from @khufu:

"Your challenge has helped immensely to keep me motivated lately. I've had a lot of... problems going on so your challenge has been a quantum of sanity in an insane world for me."

Challenge Completed for Monday:

219 reps:

  • 15 minutes hill sprints + 15 cross trainer = 100 reps
  • 16 pull ups + 28 jump squats + 75 sit ups = 119 reps

This was hard to even imagine. Must've been even harder to do, but that's what makes you successful at parkour.

Thanks man... honestly, those hill sprints nearly make me want to throw up every time.

Daily Challenge Completed - 310 reps

200 reps - Walking 30 minutes X 2; includes down and up elevation of 300 ft

Definitely deloading next week, I can feel the overtrain.

Just keep pushing on that bench press. i remember the 1st time i hit 225! It took any days and consistently lifting on the bench to get there. You can do it!!!

You're not failing at anything when you're putting in a big day like this. Turn that frown upside...

Challenge completed - 260 reps:

  • 50x2 shoulder raise (aka arm flaps TM) -- no weight (100)
  • 50x2 overhead press -- no weight (100)
  • 15x4 knee-pullups (60)

Let us know if you get any lift off the ground and then I'll try it!

Haha right. Will do. But seriously, a hundred of each of those are quite heavy -- I feel it well today. All my shoulder muscles (the tiny ones too) feels stimulated.

I've been told that this is good approach (and more effective than using weights) to shoulder exercise, before the shoulder muscles are developed properly (mine aren't). Before I start doing shoulder exercise WITH weights, I'll be doing these for a while in between my main workouts, and focus on core exercise in the main workouts instead.

Good point. I kind of did the same thing with weights in my general lifting motions, until I felt built up enough to start working on my throwing muscles.

Daily Challenge Complete - 299 reps ( knooooooow... I only needed 1 more!)

Workin' them wheels
Back Squats - 4x10
Lunges - 4x10
Leg Press - 4x10
Single Leg Step Ups - 4x10
Leg Extensions - 4x12; 1x25 (go to failure, strip weight, repeat)
Hammy Curls - 4x12; 1x18 (go to failure, strip weight, repeat)

Leg day!!!!! I need to do this more often :/

If you were at 99 reps, I wouldn't have let it slide, but 299>300 is understandable (sort of). Ha.

hahaha I was soooo close. If I knew how close I was to hitting 300, I probably would have squeezed out more reps on the Leg Extensions or Hamstring Curls... which I suppose means I didn't actually reach failure lol.

Heck yeah, Leg Day is my favorite! Get it!

I've been doing more running to workout my legs. I still have chicken legs! LOL

-25 Bar Squats (75 pounds)

-Also a 45 minute walk - not counted
-Also 50 arm circles holding a 10 lb plate (25 per arm for baseball shoulder prep) - not counted

I know you like to praise others, but i think you need to be praised and should be given 100 reps for you walk. Just my opinion! Oh snap weighted arm circles should be counted. In my book you hit 250 reps!

Thanks. I don't know why I undercount stuff, but I'll try to maybe do a 1/2 rep for such arm circles since I'm going to be doing them quite a bit for a few weeks. Baby steps.

Yea well i think if you count everything it'll motivate others to keep pushing themselves to higher levels. Just my opinion bro. Either way you are doing a great job with this challenge.

Challenge Completed - 137 reps

I hadn't actually checked out your profile. Had seen a few others post about this but I never noticed it was you running the challenge!

I just quit smoking cigs in january and have been wanting to start exercising as a smoking replacement. It's been hard to get motivated. I need to join this.

Great job quitting the cigarettes! That's truly an achievement in itself. And do join us, don't hesitate. Looking forward to see your first entry.

Before this, I never worked out regularly in my entire life. It's now been almost four months.

  ·  2 years ago (edited)

Really that's cool! I haven't really ever worked out regularly either...I did some much needed stretching followed by 25 reps today but then I got caught up fixing my car (it's been broken for a whole year). Now I have to work. I will try! Stretching felt great too. Hadn't done that in a while.

Daily Challenge Completed 244 reps

3/12 was an hour of hot vinyasa yoga! That may not count for reps but it felt amazingly!!!
3/13 was with a trainer so a little different than my previous workouts but hit 144 reps!Screenshot_20180313-190930.jpg

That's pretty good for thrusters!
