Some of the usual suspects have put together a fun burpee challenge to break up your lockdown day.

It’s simple. Do as many burpees as you can in 5 minutes, and watch your heart rate “red line”.

There are some cool benchmarks to shoot for

Greyskull trainer, Johnny Pain once said that “if you can do 100 burpees in 5 minutes or less you are probably happy with your body composition“. To join in the official challenge look up @mexi-joe or @bogdankpt or @gareth.me on Instagram, message them and they will add you.

If you are not on Instagram, shame on you, but drop me an email or a letter in the post,  or a pigeon and I’ll hook you up. Somehow!

It lasts till the end of February and sensibly, you get weekends off.

There are some fascinating experiments going on. Do you break it up?  If so, into 5’s, 10’s, or 15’s or do you just pile through?  I should say, it’s pretty disgusting whichever way you do it!

We are doing the “full” burpee version with the push-up, just to make it more fun
