If you are going strictly by the program, there is only one kind of squat and one kind of sit up. There is a choice of 3 different push ups though. However, if you aren't going strictly by the program, the choice is up to you!
I feel the need to clarify what this challenge is all about. The goal of this challenge is to do 200 squats non-stop. You take an initial test to see how many you can do with good form without stopping. From there, you are set up with a program geared for your current fitness level and it is a 6 week program 3x per week. Each day of exercise consists of 5 sets of squats. You can monitor your progress on the website listed, or on the squat challenge thread. Hope this makes it easier to understand.

There are several variations of push up on the push up website. There is the regular or military push up, the "girl" push ups on your knees or the wall push ups which are probably the least stressful.
The squats and sit ups are basic variations. If you are going for the goal of doing 200 sit ups or 200 squats, you might want to stick with one kind since different variations might be more or less difficult.
lol.. ok I have a slight weakness in my right(prominent)wrist..but I'm sure I could do a less stressful type of push up and still enjoy the challenge of it
I don't mind situps or squats..usually I do a good amount but break it up between types could be wall squats with a ball, with dumbells or barbell with situps, it's incline usually or it turns into a crunch..lol
