Re: 30 day: burpee to pull up challenge (+2 a day)

i should have set the parameters up. my newb mistake. i was just too excited to get this thing going.

The Rules:
1. do burpees to either jumping pull ups, kipping pull up, or hanging pull up
2. You have to complete each day's burpees to pull ups all at once in one set
3. If for some reason you miss a day, you have to make up all the missed burpees the following day (two sets: the make up set & today's set)
4. If you don't start the challenge with us today, you can "buy-in" at any time by doing ALL the missed day's burpees on your first day
5. Any burpees to pull ups you complete during your regular workout can NOT count towards that day’s Challenge


I did my first two today. this is going to get hard really quick.

Re: 30 day: burpee to pull up challenge (+2 a day)

Damn I gotta stop reading the "Competitions" forum, I am in. Though I am not sure with the time difference I think I am one day behind y'all so I will make up for it. (It is 11:09 am on the 27th of August here in Okinawa)

Re: 30 day: burpee to pull up challenge (+2 a day)

i did 4 today bringing my total to 6.

michael i am not sure exactly how the time difference plays into this but if you did 4 today plus 2 for yesterday i would say you are all good.

Re: 30 day: burpee to pull up challenge (+2 a day)

26-Aug burpup +2 daily challenge day 2: +4 = 6 total
27-Aug burpup +2 daily challenge day 3: +6 = 12 total

I think this is going to get really difficult by day 15. Maybe next challenge can be twice as many every other day - would take about 2 weeks.

Re: 30 day: burpee to pull up challenge (+2 a day)

I'd like to join, but I can't do it consecutive days. I can only get to the gym on T, Th, F and Sun. And there is no way I'm making up sets on the other days on top of what I'm doing already. But I would like to do is count those days when I do go as the days of the challenge. Obviously, it will take me long to complete, but that's the only way its going to work for me. So, I'll start tomorrow and do 2. and then I'll do 4 on Friday and so forth.

Re: 30 day: burpee to pull up challenge (+2 a day)

28-Aug burpup +2 daily challenge day 4: +8 = 20 total

29-Aug burpup +2 daily challenge day 5: +10 = 30 total
well at least I was able to complete it in a minute

I can feel it in my joints now, need more recovery. I'll have to switch to my normal workout days of Sat, Mon, Thurs or I'll be going down the swollen road.
