    Ok I know we did this last year but we've got a lot of new 'regular' posters here so I thought I'd start it up again.

    For those who don't know what a burpee is check it out here.

    The challenge is simple. See how long it takes you to complete 100 burpees and post your time here.

    Just so we're on the same page. Each burpee must include a full push-up but a full tuck jump isn't needed (some people can jump higher than others).

    Top prize for heavyweights is an evening out with Revok. Top prize for lightweights is a pair of mismatched socks I found in my laundry basket last week.

    This is an ongoing challenge so if you set a better time, post it up and I will update the thread.

    Deep-abiding hatred of burpees vs powerful overcompetitive urges to show off superior conditioning...

    Arrrrgh! My synapses!

    Great call, Sonny. I need a push to get my "burpee on" again so this is perfectly timed. I'll edit my time into this post tomorow night.

    **EDIT:

    100 burpees in 6:14. I love being a lankster

    edit: Time typo, 1 minute slower, boo hiss

    If I win, do I get to do whatever I want with Revok?

    Also, no tuck jump, but do I have to jump at all or can I just stand up?

    What about some weight classes (<200 & >200)?

    Just standing up isn't a burpee, it's a squat thrust.

    I'm not gonna do the whole weight class thing, then I would need two prizes.

    Alright then. 2 weightclasses, under 200 lbs. and over 200 lbs.

    Cutoff date is January 1st, this will give Revok time to work on his Geisha skills.

    It's happening all over again. I come to a new place, and once more I find myself being pimped out to ass-hungry muscle dudes...


    I'll have a number by Saturday. What if I win? Can I have the socks to bite down on?

    Just to make suer I'm clear on the version you want, its from standing to a pressup, back to feet and jump, repeat to vomit. Right?

    I've got this slated for my Wednesday afternoon workout. My 145 pound advantage is bound to help me a bit.
