Due to the Coronavirus, I have been working from home and rarely go out nowadays. As a result, I do most of my exercises indoor. I had lot of success with the One-Punch-Man Challenge over last 3 months doing 100 push-ups, 100 sit-ups and 100 squats each day. Recently I found another fitness challenge that is also simple and doesn’t need any additional equipment. It is called the 100 Burpees for 30 Days challenge.
Chase Barron has been doing this and he has also done a follow-up on how to further improve it. This is not the normal burpees but a modified crossfit-style burpees. The goal is to do 100 burpees for 30 days straight – this means 100 burpess each day for 30 days. You can spread out the exercise over the 24 hours but I like to do mine in one session. Just do what feels right for you.
What Chase learn from his 30 days round is he sees improvement in body composition, posture, physical ability, lunch capacity and more.
Here’s his first video on “100 Burpees for 30 days” and here’s what happen
After the above, Chase push further and did another challenge.
Here’s his second video on “200 Burpees for 30 days” and here’s what happen
In this second challenge to push himself further, Chase use an interesting Russian training protocol called “Greasing the Groove” (GtG). See how effective this can work. In this second video, Chase also shared how to make this routine more interesting and sustainable.
Regardless of which at-home exercise you choose, the main key is to keep working on it. Give yourself enough rest time to recover as well. Add in variety (as what I am doing now) so as to sustain your motivation.
Stay health, stay strong! Enjoy
