I decided to post my regular 10,000-burpee increment update on Inc. first this time. I’m only supposed to sample the beginning of the article when it first goes up.
So click to my Inc. post, “90,000 Burpees Today,” which begins
90,000 Burpees Today
I started my daily burpee habit in December 2011. Today I hit my 90,000th.
I’m a 45-year old man and I’ve done burpees every day since December 21, 2011, inspired by a New York Times article by Gretchen Reynolds in which a fitness expert, Dr. Martin Gibala, suggested them as a candidate for the single best exercise.
Neither of them expected anyone to do just them, but I did. I’ve written about them here and on my blog.
I consider myself in the best shape of my life, physically, emotionally, and intellectually.
Today I hit my 90,000th burpee. To be more specific, when I say burpee now, I mean a ten-minute routine that starts with burpees, then stretches, then set of abdominal exercises, then back and bicep exercises.
90,000 is a nice, round number, tantalizingly close to a sixth digit.
