New Years 24 Hr Fitness Challenge

This might be a little insane.  It's crazy with a side of possible.  Mostly, it's a challenge to shake off 2012 and come into 2013 strong.  This challenge is a challenge. The challenge: complete 1000 squats and/or lunges, 1000 ab exercises of choice and 13 burpees for a grand total of 2013. Are you game? Simple acts like sitting and laughing will hurt ...
