Dude..pull back a little..you don't want to drop dead the day after they made you a mod Cheesy Cheesy

Already was a mod....this was just making my powers unmatched.

But, 4 miles was easy and safe, so i'm good....doing a GoRuck end of Sept and a Spartan Beast about 10 days prior to that.

Need to keep going.

Selection....LOL...never .

It's a Tough Challenge.  Was training for Boston Heavy last winter, and tore IT band and upper thigh......decided to scale back to a tough challenge for first one.  Still expecting it to be more brutal and tough than any event I've done in the past.

mate, you're fit...prob more than you realise. I bet you could smash a selection with a few months training, but yeah better to start with a tough to gauge what it's like.  thigh injuries are shit though. I've ripped my adductor right off years ago that never repaired. looks weird but got back to full fitness after about 9 months. just aches now.

Thanks man - appreciate it.  But I don't know if you followed Soul Crusher when he posted here, but he's a fucking machine with this stuff and HE wouldn't even try selection.  That's for the 100 push up / 100 situp guys and it's 48 hours straight madness.

I hear you on the thigh.......i'm fine, but it's always "there".........tore it on a bodyweight lunge, of all things, and it was the back leg.

7.2 mile ruck @ 1:31.06

Then, 10 sets consecutive - 10 JJ / 10 push up / 5 pull up for 100 / 100 / 50  last three sets were only 4 pull up so had to make them up at the end.

Then, went right to neighbor's cookout for three beers.

No food yet.

Way too fuckin' hot tonight.

Mile run in 6:22

Carry home depot bucket in front full of 70lbs of weight for 1/4 mile - 3 stops for sets of 25 push up, finish with 1:15 plank.

80lb sand bag carry on shoulders for 1/4 mile....stop half way for 50 plyo jumps up bleachers and 25 more push up, finish with 1:00 plank

Mile run in 6:43

That's it....too hot.  I kind of suck at carrying the bucket.

95 all day here - too hot outside....

2 miles in 15:20 - cut short run - 95 degrees is too much.

Place where I'm at had old school universal so I did some BS there just to mess around

5 consecutive Giant sets:  machine neural press / machine squat / lat pull down.   Kept the reps above 12.

2 giants sets:  standing neutral DB / hammer curl / DB lunge.

First machine in a long time.  Felt really odd.
