100 Rep Challenge and Trial Week

by Anna D

At ATD Fitness, I created this tradition of having 100 repetition challenges every Wednesday. So, since December 2009, the bootcampers have been going through this challenge and they are rockin’ it! So, what is the 100 rep challenge?

It is basically a challenge where they perform 25 repetitions of each exercises with the exercises as follows:

  • Bodyweight Squats
  • Push Ups
  • Reverse Lunges
  • Kettlebell Swings

Then, one person times the whole thing for another person and everyone tries to do them faster compared to the last time. Besides seeing a 30.5 second improvement on everyone’s time, I have also seen big improvements in strength. For instance, some people who used to perform half of the kneeling push ups were able to perform all 25 repetitions with full push ups. That is simply amazing!

So, why do the 100 rep challenge?

Well, first, it definitely pumps everyone up and keeps the motivation strong for each participant. Also, the feeling of accomplishment of beating their own time means that they are making improvements in other areas besides weight loss. They are becoming fitter week after week and that just makes me a proud trainer. [I wish I can show you guys a video of how great they were but they are a little camera shy…lol]

More importantly, these are the type of challenges that will keep your body guessing so that you will continually see results. If you were to compare the calories they burned during just one round of this to running on the treadmill for the same amount of time, the calories burned during the challenge would be way higher.

So, are you ready for this type of challenge? If so, the week of January 25th would be our trial week and this will be your chance to try out ATD Fitness Bootcamp workouts for free. Simply fill-out this contact form and I will put you on the list. Will 2010 be your year to a sexy body?
