coming in October: daily burpup challenge
 
this will be a 30 day challenge. a burpup (or burpee to pull up) is a combination of a burpee and a pull up. to perform a burpup you execute a burpee under a pull up bar. at the end of the burpee during the jumping phase you use that momentum from the jump to complete a pull up for 1 rep.

we will perform an additional +2 burpups everyday. so on october 1st you will do 2 burpups, then on october 2nd you perform 4 burpups, on the 3rd you perform 6 burpups, and so on....... until on day 30 you perform 60 burpups.

if you start late or miss a day you will be able to buy in by executing all of the previous days missed burpups in order to keep up with the overall daily challenge total.

this should be fun!

because it leads to overtraining, been there, done that

unless you are already a firebreather (unlike me), then just forget I mentioned it.

your right, james, it could lead to overtraining depending on your fitness level. i'm by no means a 'firebreather' but i have never had any issues with any of the 5 online monthly challenges i have partaken in. this challenge is more of a daily 'grease the groove' type of movement that kind hits the whole system. the first 2 weeks of this challenge is no more then a warmup for the WODS, but as the challenge progresses you might want to change your programming around.
