100 Challenge

Well I got inspired for this work out. A friend is doing a 100 Burpee Challenge, so we are too. If you start today, you will be done by Thanksgiving. We are also adding one punch per arm, and one kick per leg.

So it looks like this:
Day 1: 1 Burpee
1 Punch (each arm)
1 Kick (each leg)
Day 2: 2 Burpees
2 Punches
2 Kicks
Day 99: 99 Burpees
99 Punches
99 Kicks
Day 100: 100 Burpess
100 Punches
100 Kicks

The end seems overwhelming, but just take it one day at a time and the next thing you know, you've done it. A lot can change in 100 days.

Strength Workout 1

I am going to try a new way of posting my workouts.  I am going to break them up into four different types:Cardio, Combat, Strength, Stretch.  I will post at least one a week. If you are working out three to four days a week you can do the most current workout a couple of times, then switch when a new one is posted. If you feel like working out four to six times a week, then you should alternate the two most current workouts, dumping the oldest one when a new one comes out.  Please take at least one day off a week to let your body rest.

As you can see, this is a Strength workout.  As I mentioned last week, I really like Body Weight exercises.  This is the first(level 1) of the 20 level challenge from Body Weight Culture, It has great pictures and descriptions of the exercises.

Warm Up:
Trunk twists
Forward Bends
Side Bends
Back Bends

Hold Push Up
Hold Horizontal Pull Up
Squats(as many as you can)
Hold Crunch
Calf Raises(as many as you can)

Cool Down:
Trunk twists
Forward Bends
Side Bends
Back Bends

I hope this format will be easier form me to keep up with, and for you to follow. Also, they will not come in any certain order.
