I did it today for the first time. Took me 10:10. My technique was spectacularly shit needs a little work, but there was a point where I thought I wouldn't manage it, so I'm pleasantly surprised smile

Anyone else doing this?

Sorry to be dense, what's the idea, time yourself how long it takes for 100 burpees?

Thanks Dawn.

Yes, exactly that. It's difficult! It's, i suppose, a way if measuring your fitness over time. I've just found a 30-day burpee challenge, ending with 100, so I might do that and see how I get on. My heart was certainly racing after ten minutes.

Well done wobbly, when burpees come up on e'cise dvds I inwardly do a little groan. Must be quite an efficient 10 min work out though in terms of it includes cardio, strength, endurance and cals burned?

Wow, I bet the last 90 are killers! well done! I might try and do fifty later.

I could probably do it in 10:10 if they were hours and minutes, or possibly days and hours.

I am quite fit, but so shit at burpees, they kill me.

If i had to do burpees for 10 days Gobblers I would lose the will to live. Swiftly grin

The first ten were definitely easiest! I had long pauses between sets of ten.

Though looking at techniques online, the pressup part was definitely lacking in mine. I'll be up to 15 mins next time, probably sad

Stop that wobbly - you are made of stronger stuff than all of us by the sound of it!! I didn't even realise there was a pushup element confused

I always thought a burpee with a press up was called a bastard! If you do the press up you are extra nails shock
