"Make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt. So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. If you want to get more out of life, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security and adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy. But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning and its incredible beauty." --Jon Krakauer
MONDAY, 07OCTOBER2019 - Work For Today
Wave 3/Week 12/Day 1
CHOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE WORKOUT - pick one exercise from each group get started on the every minute on the minute pattern. Next week is testing, so don't beat yourselves up too much!
EVENT # 1 - Carry Stuff
EVENT # 2 - Drag/Push Stuff
Arm over arm sled drags
Back pedal sled drag
Event # 3 - Load Stuff
Stoned to shoulder
EVENT # 4 - Random Stuff
Sandbag or keg throws
Barn and Backs
You will be spending 10 minutes at each station with approximately 3 to 4 minutes in between to make some decisions about your life choices.
We will go as a group, but at the top of every minute for 10 minutes at each station, you will perform an appropriate amount of reps for the amount of weight that you are using.
So if you are using a very heavy sandbag, thing you will only be traveling 50 foot every minute. If you use a very light sandbag, then you will have to choose how far you will travel each minute.
This workout will have much more of an “Open Gym” but on the clock type of feel. The remainder of the workouts this week will feel the same way, as we are preparing for testing week next week.
So get your heads right and your bodies ready. This is going to be fun.
