      Hmm I have heard of a 60 day Burpee challenge or 100 Burpees (which is where you jump up, squat down, pushup = 1 burpee then bring knees up to chest jump back up and start over). I'm going to check this out!

          So, I'm in the middle of week 5 of the challenge, and today it started doing 8 sets instead of 5. I honestly didn't think I was going to make it! My arms are going to be so unhappy tomorrow.

            I did the 100 push-up challenge last year. I made it to the end, but I did girly push-ups. I am going to start this program again really soon. I'll go through it entirely doing girly push-ups, then start the program over and do real push-ups.

            I've also heard that using an exercise ball to do the push-ups really helps.

            By the way, I didn't complete the challenge in the number of weeks it stated. I had to start repeating some of the days because it got too hard. No shame in that though!

              I just started this on Monday, along with the 200 squats and 200 sit-ups. Btw, there's an iphone app for all three of them that I downloaded that walks you thru each day. I am also going to do the C25K program shortly...

              I suck though so here's how my routines went:

              Week 1, Day 1 ...
              100 push-ups

              (for my test, I could barely do one, so I said 1)
              - sets: 2, 3, 2, 2, 3 = 12 total

              200 situps
              (for my test I think I told it 10 even though I could do more)
              - sets: 9, 9, 6, 6, 8 = 38 total

              200 squats
              (for my test I told it 15 even though I could do more)
              - sets: 13, 16, 9, 9, 13 = 60 total (my legs were KILLING me the next day!)


              Week 1, Day 2 ...
              100 push-ups

              - sets: 3, 4, 2, 3, 4 = 16 total (I could barely make it thru)

              200 situps
              - sets: 9, 12, 9, 9, 10 = 49 total

              200 squats
              - sets: 13, 16, 13, 13, 16 = 71 total

                    There is also a program set up for 200 situps and 200 squats that I'm printing up right now too! I am on a 6wk running program just like this so I'm really excited to combine all of the programs for a full workout!!!
                    wow echo!! how are all the programs working for you??

                      I'm so excited that others are getting into this! I've also been doing the 200 squats program, plus I do crunches every day, but I'm not following the 200 situps program since those aren't too hard for me.

                      I think I am going to repeat Week 5 next week. I finished it, but it was TOUGH, so I want to do it again before I move on to the final week.
