CrossFit is all about doing whatever, whenever at anytime. So we would like to introduce to you CFSF 100 day burpee challenge…That’s right not even with one day of notice. The reason: The CrossFit Games is exactly 99 Days from today. So actually it started yesterday:-))) Annie and I are in whose with us???!

For a great complete description of this challenge; we have taken this from a former CFSF CrossFitter now CF Fargo Affiliate in progress, Garrett Strating:

“Starting today April 6th all participants do one burpee, adding a burpee each day until reaching 100 burpees on the 100th day! All burpees will be done to CrossFit Games standard.
If a participant wishes to join the challenge after April 6th (yesterday:-) they may buy-in, do the total burpees for that day as well as all of the burpees missed since the beginning of the Challenge. Burpees done in a regular workout can count towards that days total but excess burpees cannot be carried over to the next day. For example, today April 7th is technically Day 2, so to buy-in you need to complete 1 burpee for yesterday and 2 burpees for today. The burpee challenge will be on the honor system, there will be no official forum other than your word.”

CrossFit Games Burpee Form Standard:
Each rep of the burpee will only count when full range of motion is achieved. The bottom limit is when your chest and thighs touch the ground. The top limit is when your hands clap overhead with your feet off the ground and your hips and legs fully extended. There is no height requirement on the jump, but the clap must occur while airborne. The clap is considered overhead when the arm crosses the plane of the ear (when viewed from the side). If the timing is missed, you may repeat the jump to complete the rep.
This will be a tough Challenge and 100 days a considerable amount of time to commit, so lets get motivated and hold eachother accountable…before you know it, we’ll all be able to say we completed the “100-Day Burpee Challenge”!!!!
