"A big problem that a lot of general fitness trainees have is that they're like grass. Now, grass is wonderful; it bends and sways and never breaks. It can survive a tornado very well.
The oak tree on the other hand, doesn't do so well, because it looks at a tornado and says, 'Bring it!' Sometimes the oak tree survives and sometimes the tornado breaks it in half. Athletes are like oak tress. They don't bend. They either rise to the occasion or they break." --Dan John

Wave 3/Week 12/Day 1
CHOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE WORKOUT - Pick one exercise from each group and get started on the every minute on the minute pattern. Next week is testing, so don't beat yourselves up too much, but we will be recording for the beDANGEROUS video, so be as prepared for that as you would like!
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 performing EMOM Rounds. Then you will have approximately 3 to 4 minutes in between to make some decisions about your life choices and which weights to use.
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 deluding and preparing for testing week next week.
So get your heads right and your bodies ready. This is going to be fun.
