October Challenge: 100 Reps a Day for 30 Days
Challenge: Complete 100 repetitions of an exercise every day for 30 days
- 100 repetitions of a single exercise must be completed within a single day to count as a Challenge Workout.
- The 100 reps may be cumulative (e.g. 10 reps x 10 sets or 25 reps x 4 sets) or a single set of 100. Adjust each day's Challenge training depending on your individual conditioning, exercise selection, and goals.
- Exercise selection may vary from day to day (e.g. 100 Push-ups on Day 1, 100 Sit-ups on Day 2, 100 Squats on Day 3, etc.), but all 100 reps for each day's Challenge must be of a single exercise.
- You can do 100 total reps of various types of the same exercise (e.g. 25 x Standard PU, 25 x Feet Elevated PU, 25 x Divebomber PU, 25 x Diamond PU), but NOT 100 total reps of different exercises (e.g. 50 Push-ups + 50 Sit-ups).
- No days off are available for this Challenge. Since exercise selection can vary from day to day, tired bodyparts can be rested by choosing a different exercise, but 100 reps of some exercise must be performed for each day's Challenge to be completed.
- Vary your exercise selection from day to day. Good Challenge options include: Push-ups, Sit-ups, Squats, Pull-ups, Swings, Squat Thrusts, Burpees, Flutter Kicks, etc. You can also try multiples of easier exercises, such as: 4-count Jumping Jacks or 4-count Rope Skipping.
- Post your daily workouts on The Daily Fitness Solution Facebook page or as a comment on this post. Even a simple “Day 15 – Done!” can be a powerful encouragement to others who need motivation to continue.
- Don’t despair or be discouraged if you miss a day, and don’t necessarily try to make-up lost days with extra training. Focus on the self-discipline and value of daily work, not arbitrary numbers. The person who completes 20 challenge workouts in 30 days accomplishes more than if he or she never started at all.
