As an Empower trainer, I’m required to take a crack at our annual Decathlon challenge. So far, I’ve completed nine of the ten events (all but the rower). These are my current results:
– MB Shuttle Chase (:31.10 seconds) / MB Slam Relay (:45.07 seconds) / Slosh Pipe (2:36) / Wall Sit (4:01) / Farmer’s Walk (45#db’s -9laps) / Bag Pull (130#-:10.18 seconds) / Burpees (55reps) / Pushups (132 reps) / 1 mile run (8:01 yuck!) / Row (yet to be determined).
I don’t foresee myself trying to better any of these scores, as I don’t want any of this to interfere with my current training regimen. Here’s a little sample of my kind of challenge…….
*After this video was taken I’ve since broken all my records again (except the bench press) i.e.- Squat (435# for 5 reps), Deadlift (455# for 7reps)
If you think you’ve got what it takes to win at the Decathlon Challenge there’s still time to enroll.
