Read this ? This look's like a ball burster man.

100 Burpee Challenge

The 100 Burpee Challenge is one of the most excruciating fitness tests in existence. Every single muscle in the body is worked to an extreme degree and you will not only be wearing out every muscle that you have, but you will also hammer your heart and lungs worse than you would have ever thought possible without taking a single step in any direction.

The 100 Burpee Challenge can be performed two different ways.
Version 1

The first method, and in the editors opinion the hardest of the two, is to see how many burpees you can perform in 5 minutes with the goal of completing 100 burpees in five minutes. Every time you perform this test you should strive to increase the number that you do until you can reach 100 burpees in under 5 minutes. The beauty of the time limit is it keeps you focused on repping those burpees out at pace. Once you can complete this method of the 100 Burpee Challenge you might not be the fittest guy in the world, but you will be in pretty good shape for a rugby match.
Version 2

The second method of the 100 Burpee Challenge is very similar to the first, but instead of simply completing as many burpees as you can in 5 minutes you see how long it takes you to complete 100 burpees total. With this version of the 100 Burpee Challenge you always perform 100 burpees and simply record the time. This method often takes much longer, especially at first, and it is important to maintain focus and not drag out each rep as fatigue sets in.

The beauty of the 100 Burpee Challenge is that it is of a very short duration using either version. You can get an excellent workout in 5 minutes (or less if you are good) and you can perform the test multiple times a week. Either way you go, the 100 Burpee Challenge will get you in phenomenal shape and make you wish you had never heard of the stupid thing. Enjoy!
