Variations for 100 Reps

100

Why?

I’ve had some practice doing 100 reps of burpees for some time. Going straight through from 1 to 100 for any exercise can be physically & mentally taxing. So I prefer to break them up into variations of different sets & reps, usually with other exercises like jumping jacks & fast feet with turns. No matter what exercise or workout you choose, 100 reps of any movement provides a short yet efficient session. Here are some variations for 100 reps.

How?

How can you break them up? How many variations of 100 are possible? So many! You can split up 100 reps in several ways. 

  • 10 sets of 10 reps

  • 5 sets of 20 reps

  • 4 sets of 25 reps

  • 3 reps of 33 reps +1 rep

  • pyramid reps by 4s: 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 16, 12, 8, 4

pyramid reps by 5: 5, 10, 15, 20, 20, 15, 10, 5

  • pyramid reps from 1-10-1: 1,2,3…10,9,8…1

  • 1 rep every 6 seconds (6 sec x 100 = 10 minutes)

  • 1 rep every 3 seconds (3 sec x 100 = 5 minutes)

  • 10 reps every minute on the minute, resting remainder of minute (emom), for 10

  • 20 reps emom for 5

You could incorporate multiple exercises into any of the schemes above, but you can also use different reps for different exercises. Choose easier movements for higher reps & harder movements for lower reps. Here are some examples, using exercises “a,” “b,” & “c.”

  • 1 a, 2 b, 3 c x 100

  • 2 a, 2 b, 2 c x 50

  • 10 a, 20 b, 30 c x 10

  • 10 a, 5 b, 1 c x 10. 

You can use multiple variations on these numbers.
