in health •  2 months ago

Two new Steemians! Please welcome @bitfiend from USA and @asafo from Germany!

Congrats to @rmsbodybuilding for earning his 5th SBD award for crossing 50,000 reps.

**Posting now because Steemit was not working for a while.

Daily Update: 16 Steemians for 4,497 reps today (238,861 overall by 34 people from 9 countries in 98 days).

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'll award 1 SBD for every 10,000 rep milestone you hit. (11 SBD paid)
  • 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.
  • Feel good about your accomplishments.

My Daily Challenge Completed - 100 reps:

-90 Left/Right Trunk Twists With Bar On Shoulders (75 pounds)
-10 Bar Shrugs (75 pounds)

My Daily Assessment:

I was dizzy for some reason (before and during my twists), so it was rather hard to put this post together. This is going to help a lot with my baseball swing and pitching velocity. Food for the day was 2 lbs of ground chicken, sautéed kale in olive oil, 1 orange, a large chicken salad with avocado and almonds, and 3 tablespoons of peanut butter.

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."

Please support our hard work and dedication and ask any questions in the comments below.

Please also resteem this new format/replace in your post links if you don't mind to try to get a fresh start on spreading the word on our challenge.

Making fun of anyone's workouts is absurd and strictly off limits. You'll be flagged next time.

·

50 one arm pushups!? Impressive

·
·

I was thinking the same thing! Making me look silly over here!!! LOL
#motivation

·

Very nice! If you don't mind sharing which country you're from, I'll add that info to you name in the chart. If you want to stay private, which is fine since you can do one-arm push-ups, no prob.

·

I'm from the USA.

50 one arm push ups sounds much more impressive than it actually is. I'm doing 5 sets of 5 reps with each arm so it's only 5 reps at a time.

·
·

Still, mad props... I know I couldn't do 5 single arm pushups, much less 5 sets of it!

·

Great work! Welcome to the team! Great workout definitely motivated me to kill it tomorrow!!

Challenge completed - 600 reps

Wow the body fat drop is drastic. Lats/traps are CUT. Be careful flexing with your phone like that because you may CRUSH IT next time.

·
·

Hahahahaha, best comment of the day.

·
·
·

No. I'm not funny enough for jokes.

·
·

hahahaha Thanks man!

Waaaaaaait a second... why am I only half a ninja? Do I need more nunchuks?

Thursday Challenge Completed:

287 reps.

·

Hah, I now realize that my comment could be read as glass half empty, versus glass half full. I meant it as a positive, but to be sure you can:

  1. Get top 3 in American Ninja Warrior
  2. Have been born into a family of ninjas I didn't know about.
  3. I find a Chinese Star lodged in my front door tonight.
·
·

Top 3 of the whole season? Crickey!... Looks like I'm gonna have to test to see if Amazon will deliver Ninja Stars in the mail. If you could lodge it in your front door when you get the package, that'd be great. Thanks Matt.

You could always just fling a boomerang over here as a warning shot and get it back in a few days, depending on the global jet stream.

I sense comedic greatness in you. If you ever want to dabble, post some stuff in the #punchline, #funny, #comedyopenmic world. It's a very supportive community and I could intro you to the right people to get good votes. I've made the majority of my Steem Power there.

I nominated him last week. :p Also wanted to ask if you just eat 3 tablespoons of peanut butter? I know peanut butter is good for energy but I wasn't sure if you just stuck a spoon full in your mouth for the energy. Thanks!

·
·
·
·
·

Good stuff.

The peanut butter is for a little protein boost, and mainly because I was out of groceries and starving late at night.

·
·
·

LOL you see.. you are funny. This is a #comedyopenmic entry in the making right here!

·
·
·
·

Hahahaa, all my worlds are colliding!

Challenge Conpleted (100 reps)
Today is cruise day, so very little time to do much of anything, but I wanted to have these abs popping so i did a quick ab circuit before getting dressed and ready to go!! Sitting at the port now about to board, so you guys wont be seeing much of me on here again until Monday. Will still exercise, but the signal is shotty over the water so will not be online much! Keep on rocking everyone!! See ya next week!

·
·
·

Thanks!! We had a blast!!

Daily Challenge Completed! - 150 reps
Doing mostly body weight exercises and I after the 2nd day I'm all sore. No pain no gain right? I'm also sick now so I had to keep it light. I hope to bring you more reps when I feel better XD

·

Hey if you can do reps when sick, you're a champion in my book.

Daily Challenge completed - 213 reps

20 Minutes Metcon with
Double KB Swing, Clean, Thruster (2x16 kg)
71 rounds = 213 reps

My Notes:
Work was exhausting and I had a few meetings so I didn't have very much time to work out. However, I could not go a day without posting! I feel that I need to continue, because I want to be accountable to the group. You all don't know how much everyone on here motivates me to work harder.

"You miss 100% of the shots you don't take!"
-Wayne Gretzky
Keep grinding and will all celebrate and achieve our goal with everyone's support.

·

Nice - thanks! Now you know how I feel sometimes when I'll never have a day off!! I'm scared with my baseball season coming up.

·
·

Yes, I understand now! Like i've said many times you guys are the one's who help me stay focused. I work out each day to make sure I have a post to share with everyone on here. I am hoping that I can influence other and motivate them to start/continue their fitness journey.

Good luck with your upcoming season. I bet you'll be in the best shape of your life before the season starts.

I'll be strong, but Father Time has taken its toll on my quickness and velocity. We'll see though. I'll definitely have the jump start I was looking for. The last time I got big in to offseason prep about 4 years ago with a similar effort, if not more, the power translated into my bat big time. Thanks for the vote of confidence.

Challenge attempted - 66 reps:
Had a full workout planned, but came to the gym 30 minutes before it closed. Oh well. New day tomorrow.

  • 12x3 squats s1:12kg, s2:14, s3:18kg (36)
  • 10x3 lunges 10kg all sets (30) EDIT: 10 kg per side, 20 kg in total

Read your comment and posted a reply -- it made a pretty crappy day a lot better. This community is the best.

Friday Morning Challenge Complete: 80 squats, 60 push ups, 30 leg lifts, 30 ankle touches and 30 sit ups. Total:230 reps.

Today was a cardio day and I was able to show a coworker the new gym I've been going to. So i got 15 minutes on an adaptive motion machine (strider) and another 15 min on the stairs. Was a good day! Shoulders tomorrow!!!! Lol. Making you look weak! Nah we're all in this to get healthy and stay there. We all have our own strengths!

·

Thank you. 100 reps it is!

I like the idea of this! I need to stay accountable to something to keep me motivated everyday! Been slacking on my fitness and need to get back into it!
Sick right now but as soon as I'm all better im in the challenge! Is there any kind of signup page??

·

Nope, no signup page! Just follow the instructions in the body of the post, and post your rep count!

Challenge completed
20 min treadmill
30×3 crunches
30×3REVERSE crunches
30×3inclined crunches
30×3 squats
10×3pushups

·

Welcome! Cardio needs to exceed 30 minutes to count, but the rest of the reps sure do. I tally 390 reps here. Nice routine.

·
·

I didn't mention planks
Side planks 3 sets
Straight arm plank 3 set..
Each set lasted for 1 min..

·
·
·

Ahh sorry I missed this. We do count planks as a certain # of reps per X second held, but I forget what we all agreed upon recently as a fair metric. I have to ask the group again to confirm.

·
·
·
·

No worries i don't know about the numbers yet as i m commenting for the first time. Anyways i will learn the permutations in few days...

Thanks for the warm welcome 💪🏾
