Release: BTC Spartan vol.5 " A pure animal" workout series
Stage 1 - Rowing machine fastest 1000 meters. Only after completion of 1000 meters rowing, the second team member is allowed to start 30 floor climb...as fast as possible.
Stage 2 - Animal movements ( frog, cangoroo, bear and crab = 1 round). Each animal movement is performed once in one full round. There are 4 rounds to be completed by each team warrior in a form of relay. The warrior can tag his/her team mate who will continue the same sequence only if...all 4 movements / one full round is fully completed.
Frog movement to set distance - completion - run back to start line
Cangoroo movement to set distance - completion - run back to start line
Bear movement to set distance - completion - run back to start line
Crab movement to set distance - completion - run back to start line = 1 full round
Stage 3 - 60kg tire 5 lenghts of push and 5 lenghts of pull movement. This stage is a free style relay. Each team warrior can push or pull tire to set distance as many time as he/she likes, passing a turn to team member only when really exhausted. This stage is all about strategy.
Stage 4 - Spartan wall. This is all about dispay of skill, speed and strength.
* Refresment break of 1 minute after completion of each stage.
Points to rememember:
1, Every competitor is going to be monitored by an event marshal in terms of repetition count, exercise form, full range of motion and time, correctness of execution!
2, Competitors can’t argue on the marshal count.
3, Each competitor is allowed to take break after each stage for 1 min. A longer break will ad penalty points
4, The Spartan challenge will be composed of 4 stages. Each team member will be allowed 2 marshall warnings per each stage of the challenge before 5 second penalty applies for any additional warning afterwards.
Food intake and hydration before competition:
A very important thing to remember is that you have to be well rested, hydrated and have adequate amount of glycogen stored in your muscles and liver. You will be going through a high intensity training format which will challenge you to the core!
1. To avoid any complications, discomfort and possible dangers don't fuel your body shortly before competition. You will need to have at least 2 meals containing between 65 to 75 % of carbohydrates metabolised at least 2-3 hours before the event.
2. Allow at least 10 to 15 minutes for proper warmup before entering the pit.
3. Keep hydrated with water at all times. Try not drink too much on one go.
4. Breathing is a key! Breathe properly! You will be briefed on correct breathing techniques before entering the pit.
5. ABSOLUTELY NO enhancers!!! No pre-workout mixes, boosters, artificial or natural.
Remember…being a true Spartan is not by the birth right....but by the fight you put on!
Good luck to you all!!
THIS IS A PERSONAL CHALLENGE…NOT A COMPETITION OR A RACE…THIS COURSE IS DESIGNED TO PUSH YOU TO YOUR LIMITS
