  1. Haven’t done this in a while. Not a huge improvement, but 8:14. First time I did it in 8:36, the most recent time I did it was around 9:10. Followed this up with a shortened MURPH.

  2. Finally broke nine minutes-did it in 8:45! Had been hanging out the past few months at 9:02-9:10. So happy! Now am going to spend the rest of the weekend looking for my spleen-I think it shot out across fhe room.

  3. Completed my first challenge – 10m 14s! Kind of cheated at the end by doing planks instead of push ups though :/ at least I still feel the burn from yesterdays workout!

  4. Hi, just completed the burpee challenge – almost loom forward to the first Friday of the month now 😉
    I managed 100 burpees, (no push up but a little jump every time) in 7.02mins.
    Not sure on last months time, so I’ll keep a note and start again…. 🙂
    Feeling great now ! Lucy (UK)

  5. First time taking this challenge…not a crossfitter, just been doing some Insanity, Asylum & P90X.
    100 Burpees in 6.47!!
    I’ll take it first time through. I’ll be back next month.

  6. july – 12.21, august 11.05, september 10.15. Including responding to a knock at the door because I thought it was someone complaining about the noise next door. After that I took fewer breaks – I can TOTALLY do it with less breaks than I think! Next month hoping for under 10!

  7. 1st time for me- that was tough!
    Time was 9:48.
    Burpees are not fun when you are over 6′ tall. Actually, they are never fun!
    Great challenge!

    September was not an improvement but still under 6 minutes with a 5:56… Hard to be upset about not improving when I’m still under 6 minutes. I’m definitely still satisfied.

  9. I really love doing burpees (and I’m 6ft tall, so I’m with Kathlern in feeling like I’m extra challenged), but I don’t know if I would say my 13:57 time today was because of mental blocks. I think it is purely a need to build more stamina. My core felt like it was slowing me down the most because I wasn’t able to pop back up to my feet once I got tired.

    What other moves do you think help to build springy, resilient core strength? Plank jumps? I’d love some inspiration!

    • I only do burpees a couple of times a month. I do a lot of other things for my core though – planks, side plank dips, yoga, find something you like to do, do it regularly, and it will help

  10. Hello, everyone! I am a newbie hier. I have visited this website at 23,08 or the first time. And I could not wait to do this challenge just on that day. I habe used over 15 minutes with a lot of breaks. This time it is better. In 9:31 I have finished the task. See you next month!

  11. Due to a Judo tournament which I mastered by winning a silver medal in my category partly thanks to my 12minuperathlete schedule I did not participate in this month’s Burpee challenge – BUT I cut my time for this exercise to half compared to last time!!! Does that count as well 😉 ? I did 70 burpees; 30 elevated push ups; 40 push ups; 50 squat jumps and 60 sit ups in 12:20min!

  12. First attempt…50 in 5min 28. Disappointed I didn’t finish, only myself to blame, think I went too fast too soon! Better luck next month

  13. I am a day late, but, I tried to do it Saturday and was WAY too sore from a run the day before, and couldn’t get past 40. I did it today though, and finished. Last month was 9:31, this month, 9:14. Slowly improving. 🙂

  14. Fist try in the challenge!! Just do it today…. 13.23… Damn that’s hard!! It seems that I got into a pool!! lol =p Hope to do it in 10 minutes!!

  15. July: I could barely do 10 burpees, much less 100. I started doing HIIT regularly.
    August: 100 burpees! It took 17 minutes, they were not pretty, but I got to 100!
    September: 100 burpees, 10:50. I wouldn’t want anyone to film me, but I’m getting there!
