    Thanks for the tag, nice of you! But 100 push-ups is very unrealistic for me...and a daily run as well.

    However...I might jump in during the year with eg. 10x10 sets of squats every day for 100 days....that sounds do-able.... or I think of other adjustments...let's see.
    Maybe I start with watching the series...

    All the best to all who participate here!

      You might use the One Punch themed workout for your scaling: https://darebee.com/workouts/one-punch-workout.html

      I'll be over here, cheering you on!

        Mostly I figured it might be useful to other people, or to see how the DB team had broken it down. I'd join, but I'm about to restart chemo, so I expect I may quickly be on the 1 pushup, 1 squat, 1 situp routine instead.

          I searched YouTube. Is it 100 push ups, 100 sit ups, 100 squats, and 10km run every day?

          That's a LOT, and I understand that you can scale here, but still... I am already full with different routines myself, like 4 to 6 things going on. It's possible that I will squeeze in some of those 3 exercises after completing Cardio Blast, which will be 14 days later. But running is really not within my plan...

          But for now if I happen to do those exercises I will post it here. How does it sound?

              On day 30 the guy is already transforming. Even his face slims down a bit.
              By the way, that's 21% body fat on day 1? I would have guessed 30% if I looked at the pic only.
              I am pretty sure I won't eat right so not going to have the same transformation.

              Kanary I wish you the best by all means.

                Alright, I'll be joining, theirs season 2 btw, I've mostly kept up with training, but Kakarot, I will try this, to the fullest of my power, no matter the challenge, even if it's 1000 pushups a day, 1000 squats, 1000 sit ups, and a 100 km run, or even worse, I'll do it, even if my hardest is not enough, I'll do it, the only way to gain new limits is to push eying your old ones, this is not just my promise to you, but to me, and everyone here

                  I have other projects at the moment but it is definitely a challenge to keep in mind BUT ... dwarves don't run, they make others run

                    1k to 2k seems like a jump that's (almost) too big. That can be just me. Please don't be discouraged... I am just saying.

                    But I wouldn't do every exercises the same amount, because my ability in each isn't equal, so something like 40 squats, 40 situps, maybe 10 push ups, and 0.5k running. Then build up from there.
                    Or 8 rounds of 0.5k

                      Why do we fall?
                      So we can stand back up.
                      You've got this!

                        Kakarot you aren't defeated if you want to restart
                        Perhaps you can built this time your own one-punch-man-challenge

                        if I had to choose I would do:
                        push ups
                        sit ups
                        squats
                        and instead of run: high knees or march steps because i don't like run and i can do all at home without apology

                          So day 5 defeated me. I knew if I took a rest I'd get disheartened and so I failed. I will start again, this time I'll come up with some kind of plan. I honestly don't know if I can run any further than 1.2km at a time but I need to try, I need to get it in my mind that I can do anything I set my mind to.
                          I'm going to restart the challenge and start with an all out go, how many reps in one go and how far without walking.
                          I'll update you with the results later.
                          Setting reasonable goals is hard. I experienced two ways with aiming high...
                          first I was aiming high, fell deep and got frustrated when I had to start over...
                          After that I tried to change my mindset...
                          ...I have still high goals, but I made myself aware, that there are day where I have to rest or have no time to do everything, That still bothers me, but I does not mean I failed with all I had already done. It is just a little break. The important part is that I will go on after that.

                          It is not all or nothing, cause everything you do adds up...

                            Don't beat yourself up about it, Kakarot. To be honest, I find it very admirable that even though you might quit often, you always start something new and get yourself motivated about your new endeavors. And doing videos is quite brave (I think, but I'm a bit of a shy person), so I wish you many cool videos (and I really like the name of your channel!) I would subscribe to your channel, but I don't use youtube like that. I'll definitely check out your videos when you start posting, though.
                            Just keep going, fallling and getting up every time is a rare trait

                              Yeah, I think "Average Fitness" sounds very approachable, likeable (damn, I wish there would be a proper English word for "sympathisch") and kind of humble. I would subscribe, but I don't have an account (well, technically I have, but it's pre-Google and not usable any more).
                              And if you're shy but do those videos anyway, more kudos to you for leaving your comfort zone

                                I heard of a guy who tried the one punch man challenge... His doctor asked him to stop because it was really bad for the body !
