This challenge is a full body strength and conditioning workout geared toward beginner level calisthenics practitioners. It consists of 5 exercises performed for 5 reps each as described in the rules.

Mitz P answered the question how often to try this? everyday or should we have rest days?
As it is not high rep/sets, you can get away with doing this everyday if you wanted to.
