The 100 day Burpee Challenge began on Monday.

I know that the 9:30 and noon CrossFit classes are in because they all had to do 10 burpees to warm-up! Here’s the deal: you can partition your burpees throughout the day. You don’t have to do them all at once. Also, ANY burpees during a WOD count!! Finally, if you miss a day, you can make it up the next day, so don’t sweat it if you skip a day (I wouldn’t recommend this after day 80 or so!)

Speaking of Challeneges. Our Winter Lean-out is in full swing. If you want to be part of the Challenge (it’s optional) you need to get our ‘before’ pictures taken by 1/10/2012. You can have someone at the gym take your pic or do it yourself at home. Just make sure the pics are date-stamped.

WOD- Chelsea
Every minute, on the minute do:
5 pull-ups
10 push-ups
15 squats

Monday – Shoulder Press/5 Rounds…

100 Day Burpee Challenge begins on Monday!

It’s easy (at least in the beginning). Do 1 burpee on day one, 2 burpess on day 2, etc. until you get to 100 burpees on day 100! Who’s up for it? Last time only 3 of us made it all the way. Will the number be greater this time???
