Break the 100s into chunks that you can handle. Don’t slack off, but allow yourself the recovery time between sets so that you can eventually get all of them in – even if it takes you an hour or two.
Time each challenge. Try to better your time each time you do it. Challenge a friend to a friendly competition – DON’T SACRIFICE FORM THOUGH.
100 is apparently a low number to you. Without sacrificing form, do the challenge as fast as you can – get those twitch muscles on their toes!
Time yourself on the full challenge – every exercise back-to-back.
Note: While all of these are difficult in their own right, the pullup challenge and burpee challenge are probably the most difficult. Whatever you do – don’t injure yourself trying hit the century mark. You won’t progress your fitness if you’re out of commission nursing an injury, so be smart.
