Burpees...a necessary evil

I'm only a few days late writing my post, but I HAVE been doing my April Challenge. So Denise came up with the torturous brilliant idea of Burpees for the April challenge. (February was abs, March was the 100 Push Up Challenge) As she mentions in her post, there was a lot of resistance to this challenge. For the record, I do NOT like burpees. However, they are really good for all over strength work, so I told her I would *try* it. She made it sound more enticing when she mentioned that we would only add one per day every day during April and we would only start with 1 on April 1. Ok, that sounded much better. We'll see how far I make it...doing "real" push-ups in the middle when I've only been doing alternate push-ups will certainly make it more difficult. Hopefully I can make it through the month. Wish me luck!

Anyone else up for joining us? If you start today, you don't have too much catching up to do!

  1. YAY ANNE! You're doing GREAT, mama! I was only ever doing alternate push-ups during the push-up challenge so this has been quite a stretch (pardon the pun) for me too. We're at the halfway point now and I feel so much stronger already! Don't you?

    So what's next month? Something for the core again, like Spiderman and Superman exercises? Should we be superheroes this summer? ;-)
