Announcing: First Ever Bodyweight Challenge

by Dejan Antic | Follow Dejan on Twitter

According to a survey done by Nielsen research group, “staying fit & healthy” is the number one resolution most people make come January 1st.

Unfortunately though, most people ditch their resolutions just after a week or two of sticking to them.

Well, to help you kick-start (or to reinforce if you’ve been at it for a while) the habit of working out, I decided to launch the first ever No-Brainer Muscle Bodyweight Challenge. It’s something I wanted to do for quite some time and now I’m happy that I’ve finally managed to put this plan into motion.

Challenge details

Come January 1st, together, we will work our way to a better physique.

Want to join?

Here’s some details you should read about the challenge:

Which bodyweight exercise are we going to do?

For the first ever bodyweight challenge, I’ve decided that the main exercise is going to be the push-ups.

Why push-ups you might be wondering?

Well, simply because push-ups are the most popular bodyweight exercise of them all and more importantly, you don’t require any special equipment to do them. Just get down on the floor and starting busting out those reps.

Who can join the challenge?

Anyone who wants to build a better physique, improve their push-up number or anyone who wants to have fun with a bunch of cool people.

The challenge won’t cost you a dime. It’s free to join and I’d love if you could also invite your friends to take part in the challenge.

When does the challenge start and how long is it going to last?

The challenge begins January 1st and it’s going to last 28 days (4 weeks), until 29th of January.

What’s the goal of the challenge?

The goal of the challenge will be to complete 2,800 push-ups in 28 days. (This averages to 100 push-ups every day.) 28,000 push-ups is kind of the goal we’re aiming for, but feel free to do more if you’re a pro.

What’s up for grabs?

If you’ve been a member of the No-Brainer Muscle community, you’ll know that recently I released my premium bodyweight training guide called Anabolic Rewiring Method. In the guide I share the secret of how to build an awesome physique with bodyweight exercises. You can read more about the guide, by checking this web page.

At the end of the challenge, I’m going to randomly pick 3 guys (or girls) who successfully completed 2,800 push-ups and they’re going to receive free copies of the Anabolic Rewiring Method + a 1-hour consultation session with me (diet optimization, routine optimization, etc.).

Where’s the challenge going to take place?

You’ll do your push-ups in your home (or wherever you do your push-ups normally), but we’re going to have a “meeting place” online.

For the purposes of the bodyweight challenge, I created a private Facebook group, where we’ll be able to share our experience and also ask for advice if you stumble upon an obstacle.

Furthermore, I’m also going to give you access to a spreadsheet, where you’ll keep track of your challenge progress.

I’ll give you access to all of this stuff, once you officially join the challenge.

How to join the challenge?

If you want to start the 2016 with a bang, then I highly encourage you to take part in the first ever, No-Brainer Muscle Bodyweight Challenge.

Here are the steps you need to take in order to join the challenge:

Step 1: Leave a comment

It’s important that you introduce yourself. Leave a comment at the bottom of this post introducing yourself and letting everyone know that you’re taking part in the challenge. Do that first, then come back to step 2.

Step 2: Share the challenge

Help spread the good vibes by inviting your friends to take part of the first ever No-Brainer Muscle Bodyweight Challenge. You can invite your friends, by clicking on this little cool link. (When you click on this link, a nice pre-populated email is going to appear, which you can send to your friends … easy as pie.)

Step 3: Sign up for the challenge

Enter your name and email address below this paragraph in order to officially sign up to the first ever bodyweight challenge. This is the most important step!

Enter your name and email below to join the challenge.






Your email is safe, you have my word.

What you’ll find inside

Once you sign-up, I’ll send you an email with important challenge details.

You’ll get access to the private Facebook group which we’ll use to keep ourselves accountable and also, to help each other out in case someone comes across a snag. Don’t feel shy … ask all the questions you might have, share your stories, offer motivation, and get feedback.

You’ll also gain access to a simple tracker you’ll have to use to keep tabs on your reps over the course of the challenge. It will serve as a great accountability tool.

More details on this stuff will be provided when you join.

Final notes

I have a gut feeling that 2016 is going to be an awesome year.

Remember, the challenge start January 1st, but in order to officially join the challenge, you have to enter your name and email address in the form above. Don’t forget to do it since I need that info to give you the access to the closed Facebook group and the push-up tracker.

And finally, please help me spread the message by sharing the challenge with your friends. I’m sure they’re going to appreciate you for recommending it to them.

Allright, this pretty much sums up everything I wanted to say for the first ever bodyweight challenge. Make sure to join the challenge now so you won’t forget.

See you on the other side! :)

Hey Pierre, glad to have you on board! :)

You can do the pull-ups since I know you really like them.

PeterGeneva

How can I not do this? Only 2800 to go!

Dejan

It looks like much, but it really isn’t :)

Somto

I’m totally in….although 100 push ups a day is a bit rookie.
I’ll be doing diamond push ups

Reply

Dejan

Hey Somto!

Glad you’re in. :) You can do a more difficult version of the push-up by for example having your feet elevated.

Reza

while Dejan is right about the decline PU behind harder that PU_regular, Somto is also right. Assuming the person is not extremely much more built/strong in arms, PU_diam is harder that PU_reg. Less of your chest helps w/ diamonds and your front deltoids barely come into play.

Look

Count me in man. Since I am a beginner , push ups are just perfect for me!

I already asked this ? from you in a separate email Dejan (yes I know ur “busy” :P ), but here we go again: “HOw the hell does the notion of recovery factor into this” I suppose good conditioning may result from doing this t ype of exercise…

I’m just hooped that I might have to travel by end of Dec or early Jan and deal w/ some difficult issues and be way less than familiar/stable regarding diet (and maybe even rest).
As a visitor in another country, troubling my relatives by staying at their houses, and not having my own pots/pans and cutlery, I’m kinda wondering, yikes what the hell do I do w/ regard to fitness. I am impressed by the methods put forth here, arbitary as they might see.

What kind of results can we expect if that can even be answered at all in any regard whatsoever?

Reply

Dejan

Reza … just do 100 push-ups a day. It’s not rocket science buddy ;)

I’ve lived in many countries in my life and I’ve traveled to many places and I know for a fact that anyone can do 100 push-ups a day, even if you lack the “ideal” conditions.

Look

I already joined, but the above comment reminded my of something, since I already have the Anabolic Rewiring Method. Can we still follow the workout in the method (without doing the pushup part and gtg).
I am sure you will also cover the part of what is going to be called an accepted good push-up for the challenge.
