The CFSC Burpee Challenge Log

Crossfit Santa Cruz has started a 100 day Burpee challenge (WFS, scroll down a little), and a number of us have decided to participate as well. This is a log for us to keep track of what day it is, and also to keep each other honest. It is, of course, open to everyone.

Given the source, I'm gonna assume it's OK to copy/paste the rules directly from CFSC. If that's out of line, hopefully a mod can remove it.

Beginning today, Monday, July 14th, we are going to start doing one burpee a day until we get to 100 burpees on the 100th day!

The Rules:
1. Use Burgener's burpee standards for form (see examples below)
2. You can complete each day's burpees all at once, or broken up and done at different times throughout the day
3. If for some reason you miss a day, you have to make up all the missed burpees the following day
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 you complete during your regular workout can count towards that day’s Challenge burpees, if you want them to
5. Have fun doing burpees and getting stronger doing it!

Burpee Challenge Form Standards:
One
http://www.crossfitsantacruz.com/cro.../71308_017.jpg
Start with hands on the ground in front of your feet. Keep your back straight.

Two
http://www.crossfitsantacruz.com/cro.../71308_021.jpg
Kick feet out behind you into the top of the push-up portion of the burpee. Your body should be straight and tight in a flat plank.

Three
http://www.crossfitsantacruz.com/cro.../71308_022.jpg
Lower your body into the lowest part of a push-up. Your chest and thighs should ultimately touch the ground at the same time. Remember to keep your whole body, especially your midline, tight. While throwing your body on the ground and therefore touching both chest and thighs to the ground is acceptable by some standards, we feel that more is to be gained from doing a strict push-up in this Challenge.

Four
(it will only allow me five images, so I'm omitting this one)
Push up into the top of the push-up position again.

Five
http://www.crossfitsantacruz.com/cro.../71308_030.jpg
Jump your feet up to your hands into your starting position.

Six
http://www.crossfitsantacruz.com/cro.../71308_028.jpg
Jump into the air and clap your hands overhead so that your ear is exposed in front of your arms. Your feet should leave the ground.


I first heard of this Challenge from The Serrano Family of CrossFit Marina. They recently completed the Challenge and all swear that they are so much stronger and have better wind because of it. They loved the burpee part of the CrossFit Games! Denise Serrano originally got the idea from CrossFit Long Beach and loved the idea so much that she started the Challenge before they did. Crossfit Long Beach is on day 96 today! I don't know where they got the idea, but maybe someone out there knows and can fill us in.

My goal with The Burpee Challenge is to do what I dislike the most! We all know that there is no better way to work your weaknesses then to just do it. Please post if you are interested in joining us in this Challenge. As far as I know, Greg A, Hannah and I are starting today. Anyone else? Greg and I both did 100 burpees yesterday so we would have something to compare to the time we get on 100 burpees completed after the Challenge is over. I'm guessing we will get a lot faster.

Re: The CFSC Burpee Challenge Log

Since we're all starting this a couple days late, anyone (like us) starting the challenge today owes SIX BURPEES (1 + 2 + 3) to catch up.

My wife Rebecca and I will be doing ours at some point before, during or after our CF class this evening.

Technically, the buy-in tomorrow will be 10. (1+2+3+4).

It pays to get on the train early.
