You are a Spartan. As a Spartan, you spend twice as much time on the course pulling over pushing. During today’s workout, challenge yourself to progress your bodyweight techniques. With this increased difficulty, we are decreasing our repetitions to allow our body to gain the maximum benefit from the tougher exercises.
Crab Walks – 4×8 (7-8 RPE)
Challenge: Move laterally rather than forward and back.
Dead Hangs – 4x:30 (7-8 RPE)
Challenge: Try splitting the time in half and hang with one hand at a time.
Box Jumps – 4×8 (7-8 RPE)
- In a seated position, keeping your heels firmly places on the ground, pick your toes up and tap them back to the floor as quickly as possible. This is great to prevent shin splints.
Foam roll any muscles you feel excessive soreness or tightness
