Four years of burpees!

Yesterday began my fifth year of daily burpees, never missing one!

I love the fitness they create. More importantly, the practice of integrity they create leads to me not skimping in other areas.

My routine has expanded from ten burpees total to include stretching, back exercises, and ab exercises—one set in the morning, another set in the evening.

I’ve also started other SIDCHAs.

I’ve written before about their benefits, which you can read about in “Burpees — unbeatable for fitness and my best habit — the series” and “The Self-Imposed Daily Challenging Healthy Activity (SIDCHA) series.”

Come to think of it, my Harvard and MIT SIDCHA talk covered the subject well. I recommend watching it if you haven’t. It’s changed people’s lives.

Most of all, if you don’t have your SIDCHA equivalent, I hope you don’t just read about burpees and SIDCHAs but you do them. The structure and discipline they create helps everywhere in life.
