I hit my 70,000th burpee today. Well, around today. I sometimes do more but never fewer, so I’m not sure the exact number. 70,000 is a lower estimate.
Still doing 26 every morning and 26 every evening.
Haven’t missed any. On the contrary, I also include stretching, ab, and back exercises.
They’re still never easy. Before every set I have to steel myself to do them and use willpower to start. But after every set I feel great.
Incidentally, I finally passed the guy who did a one-year burpee ladder (one burpee on day one, two on day two, and so on up to 365 on day 365), who did 66,795 burpees in one year, but I took more than four years to do it.
Enjoy your burpees!
