It's going to be pretty hard these next 19 days. All hands on deck for support!! Yesterday I played rugby. While I was able to muster strength to do them for warm-up (and 20 post game) - today totally hurts.
That's about the thought process that gets me through every day. I'm nervous for this weekend's rugby tournament.On the upside, I am now under 600 burpees in the bank! Down to 595 from a high of 1045. I hope to reach the halfway point today.Si, se puede!
home stretch! its going to be tough but we've all made it this far. i'm a lot in the hole after my shoulder started acting up and then a bad cold. i'm now planning my day and workout around them to get out of the hole and finish on time! lets keep each other going!
Hey fellow burpee-ers! As we get into the home stretch, I have a couple questions:1) What's the greatest number of burpees you've done in a single day?2) What's the greatest number of burpees you've done without stopping?3) Do you find doing them in sneakers versus barefoot is either harder or easier? I find doing them in sneakers is harder! Don't know why ...
1) According to my catch-up log, 133. This seems low when I consider how sore I am, but I'm doing 120-130 every day at this point...2) Couldn't tell you. Maybe 20?3) I like socks on hardwood/tile. At first it seemed dangerous, but now I really like sliding back!
1) I only had to catch up one day so 90 is the biggest day. Though I am carrying 50 over from today because I have a hurt neck. So tomorrow might be my biggest day!2) 60. I timed myself without stopping on day 60.3) I almost always do them barefoot and almost always on carpet!
Great questions Kelly, I'm interested too.1) Over 200, I don't remember the exact amount but I was down 400+ when I returned from a trip to San Diego, and I caught up in 2 days. Since I've had to catch up every week, I know I can do about 140 per day with little soreness for 4-5 days in a row.2) Only 23. I really wanted to go as long as I could without resting, but 23 was really difficult. I think I go too fast as someone timed me on this, and it took less than a minute. I am amazed that Rachel can do that many in a row (difference btw sprinter and endurance runner?)3) Much prefer socks on wood to any other way. I think it is less taxing on legs and also great for building abdominal stability. And more fun:)
1. I once did 177 in a day, after which I swore off catch up burpees.2. I think the most I've done in a set is 20. After that my form really suffers.3. I prefer sneakers all the way. I do them barefoot on carpet in the morning and I find it difficult when I'm jumping my feet back forward after the pushup. Sneaker tread gives me some grip so I don't slip and face plant.
1. 142 is my new one day record, but its going to go up each day as i'm still in the hole.2. 40. very slow.3. i love socks on hardwood floors but wearing sneakers seems to keep me motivated to do more!
