Let the fun begin. 1,000 pushups, squats and crunches to be done on January 1st, 2012. We do this every year, so no one can say they didn't know about it and haven't trained.
If you can't do some of these exercises, substitute. Tweaked knee doesn't allow you to do squats? Then do 1,000 toe raises. There is always something you can do in place of something else. There is someone who has recently broken 5 ribs and he is going to do the pushups, using the non-broken side, against a wall - I told him to stop if he starts spitting up blood. In his case crunches and squats are out.
Some words of caution: Do the exercises in bite size chunks. If you do too many early on, you will have trouble finishing - and we always finish. Take ibuprofen before during and after. Make it fun by getting together with other people and challenging each other. Call, text or email the other people who have excepted the challenge and encourage each other.
Why the hell not.
We never challenge ourselves anymore.
What better way to start a new year than doing something outrageous.
It will stop you drinking the night before.
Your soreness will go away, but your sense of accomplishment never will.
Let me know how it went, and Happy New Year.
