    So someone posted the link I will provide at the end of this thread awhile back. It looked great and the thing I liked about it was that you did not need any equipment. Assuming you have no nagging injuries you should be able to do this.

    I did it for my first time today. I cannot vouch for how much fat I will lose but I could not do it all the way straight without taking a couple of breaks. I will need some time to become conditioned to this. I highly recommend it:

    Sometimes I have dreams where I can move like that.

    Damn.. A.; are you adding this on top of your regular routine, or just mixing it up?

    This will be my fat burning/cardio in addition to my weight training.

    This is only to burn calories from fat stores. Once I get to the point of being able to do it nonstop M-100's can be completed in about three to four minutes.

    I think I'll try this tomorrow. Looks like a lot of the same conditioning I did for volleyball.

    M100s are my new cardio routine. I change it up here and there with intense jump rope and P90X Yoga X. M100s hand me my sculped muscle ass every time! I usually need to sit down for a while afterward, but it kicks the shit outta running. Highly recommended!!

    I am sore throughout my legs in areas I am not accustomed to. I would have done it again today but am waiting for the soreness to go down. I will try to do this at least three to four times a week.

    So with the reps.. do you just do as many as you like of each exercise then move to the next making a total of 100 reps or is it 100 of each. It wasn´t very clear tbh and I couldn´t work it out.

    Well, I counted the reps in the video. He does three different exercises and each one is ten reps. The one where he is in a pushup like position seems to have more reps. It appears with this movement he does a total of twenty. I basically try to do the whole thing without any rest. But I'm not well conditioned enough to do this yet. Maybe after a few weeks I will be.

    So I basically alternate exercises after ten reps until I reach 100. I try to mimic the video as best I can.

    This looks great - I'm going to try it out this afternoon.....

    I'm a little unsure though, how do you get to 100?

    So its:
    Squat Thrust
    Mountain Climber
    Squat Jump.

    Is it 10 of each x3? Thats 90?

    Confused, but up for the challenge if anyone can elaborate!

    It's only those three moves? Although I'm sure it's very, very difficult, I have a hard time seeing how this is more all-around effective than, say, 45 minutes of plyometrics or a solid cardio-core workout.

    The guy in the metacafe video wasn't employing very good form on his squat thrusts/burpies. He wasn't coming all the way up on the jump and he wasn't thrusting back far enough on the plank. He employed a shorter range of motion than I've been taught. He was keeping his back stable though, which is what I find to be the most difficult part of burpies.

    I dunno if I buy this as a full cardio replacement. Sure, it's a great way to shake up your leg workouts if you become bored with squats and presses, but while all three of these will tire you quickly, it doesn't seem you're going to zap the same 500 calories you'll burn from 30 minutes of running.

    Well, look at it this way.

    Look at their body and then look at yours. Assuming they are being honest with their approach for burning fat it appears that what they are doing really works for them. Proof is in the pudding.

    Remember, they are trying to burn fat. Cardio is truly an approach to work the heart for extended periods of time. But doing so generally compromises muscle mass. That's why so many male aerobic instructors don't have much muscle mass or density.

    To do 100 you would do the squat thrust for an additional ten reps so that exercise is repeated four times.

    MMTM, cheers for that.... I thought it was something simple I was missing!

    I did this yesterday,,, well 90's rather than 100's, after doing a little core workout.

    I had to stop middway, then 3/4's way for a second or two to catch my breath.
    This definatly kicks arse - going to keep at it and try getting it done without pause.


    This is going to spur me on to get my body fat down as low as possible.

    Wonder how may sets of 100 are possible!

    Quick question guys, even though i'm bringing such an old topic back to life. Basically, I have been doing that m-100s everyday for the last week now, and it ABSOLUTELY kills me when I'm done it, but I feel good doing it and often do it like twice a day.

    I just worry it isn't really that effective when it comes to an ab exercise, since by the end of it, MY LEGS feel like silly putty and are tired as hell, but I hardly feel any burn in the ab region, not even close to when I do a variety of crunches and sit ups that target the abdomen region...

    Is it more of a cardio/running exercise, rather than an ab one like it claims.

    Your abs are not going to get much work in this routine. It's mainly to burn calories and help burn some fat.

    You can always try CrossFit, and find out it was what you were missing in your workouts... some of the fittest and hottest albeit guys do CF... If you want good form stressed do CF, your body and movement will thank you...

    Burning fat exposes underlying abs, though.


    Very true, but where we burn fat is unique to the individual. According to A.C.E. it's not possible to spot reduce fat stores just at the midsection/abs of the body. And one should still work the abdominal muscles in order to develop the muscles in this area.
