Does the thought of doing 100 push ups and sit ups make your arms and stomach tense up?  Would you like to have the toned swimsuit body that can easily do 100 push ups and sit ups?  If you follow this simple program, in 100 days or less, you will be able to do 100 push ups, 100 sit ups, and 100 lunges in a single workout.

When I’m working on a cardio machine at the gym, I will often start at an easy level and gradually increase the intensity or speed in small increments at set intervals.  Approaching cardio this way enables me to reach difficulty levels that I won’t normally attempt because the gradual increases mask the intensity.

100 Days To A Toned Body Challenge

Last year, several of my friends attempted a 100 day challenge that was set up in a very similar fashion.  The primary difference was that the exercises were strength, not cardio, focused.  I was training for a marathon at the time and was unwilling to devote any additional time to another fitness challenge so I didn’t get details on the challenge, but I did get the general idea.

Conceptually, this is a really easy fitness program to follow.  Each day you simply add one more repetition to each exercise.  So, on the first day you will do:

  • 1 Push Up
  • 1 Crunch
  • 1 Lunge/Leg

On the next day, you will do 2 of each exercise.  On day 3, you’ll do 3 of each exercise.  And so on until day 100 when you will do 100 of each exercise.

If you can already easily knock out 20 reps of each of these exercises, there’s no need for you to start your program at 1 rep of each.  Why not get to your goal 3 weeks sooner and start at 21?

To help you keep track of where you are, print off this handy chart (100 Day Challenge) and “X” off each day as you complete that day’s challenge.

    • I thought so too but I have to confess once you get to day 50, you start to question what you were thinking when you started!

  1. Now THAT’S a fabulous idea! I think that might actually work better for me now that I’m starting to get back into exercising because it takes things slow and steady which I definitely need!

  2. This is great, I love the chart! I printed it and do it first thing in the morning while my coffee is brewing. Thanks for the motivation! 🙂

  3. Sounds great ! I am going to try this, I get a lot of exercise , cardio, but not enough toning and shaping. Thanks 🙂
