Excuse Me!

100 Day Burpee Challenge

Courtesy of CrossFit Santa Cruz, I've embarked upon the 100 Day Burpee Challenge ;) Basic premise is that "we do one burpee on day one and add one each day until we get to 100 burpees on the 100th day"!

The rules can be found by following the link above to the CrossFit Santa Cruz site - I started on July 23rd, with a "buy in" of 55 burpees that day. When all is said and done, I will have performed 505o burpees. Yes, I know. Crazy. I never claimed otherwise.

Along with the details and rules of the challenge, CrossFit Santa Cruz has posted a pictorial to school the participants in proper burpee form. 6 points. Very specific.

However, if you'd like a much more entertaining view of this basic move, I invite you to watch the following video of Mike Rowe of TLC fame. It's a 5 point burpee (he's missing the overhead clap at the end), but it's pretty fabulous...
