I Did Sit Ups For 90 Days And This Is What Happened || FUNNY ANIMATION CHALLENGE


Those of you smart enough to subscribe to
our channel have probably already seen our episodes on the recent craze sweeping men
all over the world: six-pack abs courtesy of cosmetic surgery. Our deep dive into this new craze amongst
men revealed some pretty disturbing things, like for instance the fact that men now opt
for cosmetic surgery at a greater rate than women! Selfie culture seems to be taking a pretty
big hit on the egos of men around the world, but what if you don’t have thousands of dollars
to spend on a quick surgical upgrade? Or what if you prefer to do things the more
natural way? Stay tuned as we once more put your favorite,
and our least important, staff writer through the ringer, and challenge him to shape up
or ship out as he does sit ups for 90 days straight! Day 1: Well, as far as insane challenges go
I guess I should count my lucky stars that this one is pretty mild. Doing sit-ups for 90 days is probably the
tamest thing that Infographics has put me through in a long time… maybe ever, and
I guess I could use it. I like to stay in shape, but I have an unreasonable
hatred of doing any kind of ab workout. It’s exhausting on an emotional level, like
having to be the shoulder your friend cries on after the guy you warned her to never date,
inevitably breaks up with her. Only it’s my abs doing the crying. If you’ve followed these challenge episodes,
you might remember that I also hate running, and for exactly the same reason: complete
and utterly boring exercises. I know first-hand the benefits of constant
sit-ups though, and used to rock a six-pack throughout my military career thanks to all
the constant running and ab exercises. Seriously, the military loves making you do
sit-ups, its the weirdest thing in the world and almost on a fetish level, but you’re always
doing some variation of ab exercise from sit-ups to burpees. There were daily lunges, mountain climbers,
burpees, side planks, supermans, bycicle crunches, godzilla stomps, russian twists, and butterfly
kicks- so many insane ways to torture your abs that you probably didn’t realize I made
one of those up. So I guess I’ll be hopping in a time machine
and going back in time to restart my old daily exercise routine. I stopped my normal exercising for a few weeks
before this to get a better sense of how effective this would be for the sake of the challenge,
so I’m looking forward to not feeling flabby and gross again, but I am not looking forward
to the actual exercises. There’s literally nothing more tedious than
ab workouts, except maybe running. My routine will consist of the following,
in sets of 3: 20 butterfly kicks
20 traditional crunches 20 russian twists
20 elbow-to-knee crunches 20 burpies
20 mountain climbers I don’t expect that I’ll be able to fully
complete 3 sets at first and it’ll take a while, so if you’re following at home and
can only do one of the sets, or part of one of the sets, don’t sweat it, just keep at
it and note how you gradually get better and better. That kind of slow improvement is a great source
of inspiration. I’ll check in every thirty days, so I guess
I’ll see you guys in a month. Day 30: As predicted, I couldn’t fulfill all
three sets of each exercise at the start. In my regular life I stay pretty fit, but
since I stopped exercising for a few weeks in preparation for this challenge, I definitely
lost a lot of stamina and strength. I could barely crank out the first set on
each exercise at first, and now at the end of the month I’m hitting the full three sets
but definitely feel like I’m about to die at the end. As far as my actual abs, well they’re definitely
noticeable when I press down on my stomach, but they’re not super well defined. You can see a vague shape, but I’m not rocking
a noticeable six pack. Sadly, that’s going to take a lot more work. I guess I do feel better about myself overall
though. It’s nice to be exercising again and I kind
of miss getting the blood pumping every morning. I’ve never been an exercise junkie, I just
do it because I like the results and because I need to, but I don’t get literal pleasure
out of it the way the girlfriend does- but I think she’s insane. Never fully trust anyone who says they honestly
enjoy exercise- they’re probably not really human. Probably some weird space alien in disguise,
waiting for you to drop your guard so it can harvest your brains. See you guys in another thirty… if my brain
hasn’t been harvested. Day 60: So over the last thirty days the workout
routines have become a lot easier, to the point that doing the entire three sets of
each exercise is not a problem. I’m still ending a bit winded, but I definitely
feel that I could push it harder if I really wanted to. I know I talk a lot of trash about exercise,
rightfully so, but honestly getting to the point where you’re doing things you could
barely even start doing weeks ago does feel pretty good. There’s few things in life with such clearly
defined goals, or moments of success, as with exercise. Rarely in life do you physically see the goal
you’re striving towards, and then realize the exact moment you’ve achieved it- and the
moment where you’re ready to push past it. As far as my body, well you can definitely
see ab muscles, and I guess I’m rocking what you’d call a four pack. I’m not gonna lie to you, I don’t know if
I’ll be able to get to the six pack. My diet is a bit all over the place- and honestly
all the insane infographics challenges aren’t helping in that regard. But more importantly I just don’t live the
lifestyle I used to. Last time I had a clearly defined six pack
it was basically my job to work out and keep in fighting shape, and my diet was pretty
well defined thanks to the chow hall and MREs out in the field. Now I definitely do a lot less cardio, spend
a lot less time in one hundred plus degree temperatures, and eat a lot more terrible
snacks. I feel like getting to an actual well defined
six pack is an entire lifestyle choice, and I have no interest in that. I enjoy overeating occasionally, and devouring
an entire pan of cheesecake once in a blue moon. I have one more month left to go, but I’m
not confident I’ll be seeing a six-pack by the end of this. Day 90: 90 day sit-up challenge complete,
and the journey was rough, then got ok, then… I don’t know, all the exercising just got
to be part of my daily routine. I’m not gonna pretend that exercise routines
are easy, and I’ll admit that if it wasn’t literally my job to have committed every day
to this routine, I would’ve taken plenty of cheat days. But as anyone following along at home knows,
starting this journey is pretty damn difficult, specially when you’re wheezing and gasping
through the first few reps of your first set. In time though, it gets easier, and it feels
pretty satisfying to see yourself pushing past your old limits. Eventually, if you stick with it long enough,
it kind of becomes a part of your nature. Sure, you’ll take your cheat days, but I think
the longer you stick with a routine the harder it becomes to actually quit that routine,
because it just starts to feel unnatural to not do it. After 90 days my 60 day prediction held true-
I am definitely not rocking a six-pack, but it’s not because the muscles aren’t there. The muscles are definitely there, but I just
didn’t commit to a complete diet change that would trim all the excess fat from around
mid section and the belly. That’s the thing about working out your abs,
it’s just not going to get rid of every ounce of belly fat unless you’re carefully monitoring
every bite of food you eat. It’s called diet and exercise for a reason. I am however rocking a pretty nice four-pack
with some great definition, and well, it kind of does a lot for your self-esteem. Also, the girlfriend is practically in love
with it so that’s a pretty big plus. In the end though, getting these results is
a personal choice, and if you can’t find a reason to want this for yourself, not what
other people think about it, sticking to a workout routine like this probably isn’t going
to be realistic. I really wish any of you following at home
good luck, and I encourage you to stick with it. Getting in shape feels great, and is great
for your health. And take it from me- I know what it’s like
to want to quit, but don’t, keep with it and you’ll see some pretty awesome results in
time! Now if you’ll excuse me I have to go buy a
bunch of super-douchey name brand workout clothes and take a series of really obnoxious
instagram pictures in front of a gym mirror. Think you can start and keep up with this
routine? Let us know in the comments! And as always if you enjoyed this video don’t
