What a day!

This morning was the kickoff of the Spartan Challenge.  Participants got their "before" pic snapped, body fat pinched (ugh), and then did a pretty grueling workout.  It was

25 Pullups
50 Deadlifts
50 Pushups--- (there was some great form out there!  Must be the 100 Pushup Challenge!)
50 Box Jumps
50 Floor Wipers
50 KB Clean and Press
25 Pullups


I was a volunteer this morning, so I counted reps and cheered people on.  It was so much fun to watch everyone give it their all.  The Floor Wipers seemed to be the hardest.  Here is a pic of Mel rockin' the Floor Wipers:

I was really inspired by all the sweat, grunts, and smiles.  For the next 6 weeks, participants will be food logging, checking in with their coach, and doing extra workouts on their "off" days.  In 6 weeks there will be a Spartan Finale and everyone will do the workout again- smoking their previous times I'm sure.  I can't wait to be there cheering you all on!!!

  1. Big hugs of thanks to you and all of the other volunteers for supporting all of us yesterday. Even Spartans need a cheerleading crew!
