  1. I did the 100 Burpee Challenge for the first time today in 9:04. For about half of my burpees I did the modified pushup portion you demonstrate in your How to video, instead of the full pushups, though. Guess I need to work on being able to do 100 pushups in a row, too 🙂

    My question is: Are you doing all 100 Burpees in the speed method your video shows or with all full pushups?

    I know your overall motto with you site and this workout is just to give it your best all the time, (and I am definitely pumped just to have made it through the challenge) but I would like a benchmark for comparison to your awesome 6:03 time!


    • CJ, when I do the challenge I do chest to floor – not full push ups. If you want to do full push ups, go for it, but most people can’t do 100 full push ups in a row with good form (as in getting your chest to the ground every time), so focusing on the push up will slow you down A LOT. I go for speed – trust me, your arms will still be tired by the end 🙂
