Job done on this one with added running thrown in.

Pullups 9 7
situps 22 23
burpees 9 9
squats 25 27

no crawling, but run 3 miles instead of the 2 lots of 5 mins

First time out, here's the damage:

Ran 5
Pullups 9(neg after 5)/8(neg after 4)
Situps 21/17
Burpees 7/7
Squats 22/21
Ran 5

Had big ideas about running an extra 10 or so after, but was pretty cooked -- I think I ran too hard at the outset, was a little gassed by the time I got to pullups...

Taylor said...

Oh yeah, did bear and crab crawls too.

Great job guys. It's good to see you posting.

Taylor, nice to have you with us.

I think this is my favorite of the Spartan runs we have used on a regular basis.

Only my second workout since returning to the fitness solution. I had to substitute mountain climbers for bear crawls. They were a brutal replacement.

Pullups - 7/6 (with a hang for time at the end)
Situps - 14/11
Burpees - 10/7
Squats - 14/15 (full, rock bottom)
Mountain Climbers - 31/18 (brutal)

This is for 10/20/08. The last posts I see from two years ago.

Warmed up with about 15 minutes of Transformetrics light DVRs, and some Hindup Pushups and Squats.

Ran 5 minutes (about 1/2 mile)
Pullups (asstd) 15/15
Crunchs 25/25
Squat Thrusts 15/15
Hindu Squats 15/15
Bear Crawls 30/30 seconds
5 min run (another 1/2 mile)

Took about two minutes after the last Bear Crawls to stretch my calves before the final run -- and to catch my breath.

Good workout format. Keep posting 'em.
