Design a Challenge Workout

With all this talk of challenge workouts, and everyone wanting to attempt one, I wanted to jump on the bandwagon. Rather than design my own challenge, I've decided to let our clients to do it for me.

Here are the rules:

Submit your challenge in writing to info at
Jason will review all the challenge ideas, and pick one or a combination of them for me.

Keep in mind that challenges are meant to be just that, challenging, not impossible. All of the suggestions will be posted here on the blog with the final decision to be made by February 10th. You have just 10 days to get your vote in. You won't get many more chances like this one.

Today's WOD First Day New Session

Tabata Everything
bottom to bottom squats
push ups
broad jumps
db push presses
sit ups
jumping pull ups

rest no more than 2 minutes between each tabata exercise

Pamela MacElree said...

its a variation of jumping rope where you have to get the rope around twice before your feet hit the ground again

I prefer the playing dodgeball in the dark clip from "Jackass 2." :D

I have been thinking long and hard about an appropriate challenge, and I think I have come up with a good program. This challenge will test all three muscle groups, namely the upper body, the abs and the legs
1) 10 pullups

2) 200 burpess in 15 minutes. (If Susan can do 300 burpees, this should be doable).

3) 200 "Executives" in 10 minutes. The executive is an exercise I have designed myself. It consists of sitting on one of the step up platforms (the middle level ones) and then standing up without using your arms.

This is the challenge I propose
