Its been mighty quiet around here lately so I thought I'd put a challenge out there.

For time:
100 push-ups
100 squats
100 crunches

Here are the rules:

1. Push-ups: chest MUST touch the ground and arms must be fully extended at the top for the rep to count. Doing them on your knees is acceptable.

2. Squats: knees should be at 90 degrees at the bottom of the squat. I used my couch as a guide, (if my butt touched it I was low enough). We're all different heights so find a box, stack pillows, have your roommate crouch on all fours just get low!

3. Crunches: feet off the ground and knees at 90 degrees. Make it a good range, no 1 inch crunches.

4. You get a minute break between exercises so subtract 2 minutes from your total time. Post your time.

5. Most of all, don't cheat. Every time you cheat I will know and I will punch a kitten.

See the awesome illustrations for technique. If you are still confused then youtube them, there are lots of good how-to's out there.

You have 3 days to do the challenge.... GO!


  1. Neil: 11:40

    I had to do knee push ups after 50 regular ones, and it still took me 6.5 mins get through all 100.

  2. But you did them. Thats all that matters.

  3. Yeah the other night I was gonna post a picture of a tumbleweed but then I spent too long finding one that I liked and looked like it was rollin' real good.

    But I did just see this commercial which I found inspiring that I was gonna post.

  4. I did half knee push ups as well...
    That was harder than I thought it would be. I did about 11:00 minutes.

  5. Tried it again this morning. Shaved 5 seconds off my last time- 7:46.
