I've been doing four sets of 16 for a while now (64 sit-ups as well) -- with stretching in between. With running to get my heart pumping, it's about a two-hour workout. Do this twice a week alternating with two more days of weight training. Lost 45 pounds since August 1, 2016 and feeling great at 62!
Dave - listen to your body. If you feel like doing it daily is wearing on your joints, or not giving your muscles enough time to repair, then give yourself rest days. There's no point in injuring yourself, thus setting yourself back farther.
I am rethinking my goal and instead, give my muscles a day in between to rest. Three days of 50, one day off, two days of 50, then another day off. Any thoughts would be welcome.
Dave - Sounds like a plan!
Giancarlo, "greasing the groove" as you say. Two sets of 25 in one day. Starting date, January 1st. Take your pic, for before and after results!!!
@Dave I was thinking the same thing yesterday... if you are going to do it, I'll join you. I want to get back to doing 50 in one shot. Is there a program you're following, or just "greasing the groove" by doing them throughout the day until you hit 50?
@Thomas - kudos, man... burpees suck.
Thomas, burpees in the AM? Wow! congrats! Now that would be a challenge for me....good for you. Keep it up!!
