Partition the pull-ups, push-ups, and squats as needed. Start and finish with a mile run. If you’ve got a twenty pound vest or body armor, wear it.

The Athletes Around You
Last week during the row/burpee workout, I heard an athlete say to the athlete next to them, “I saw you were going for the 11th burpee (in :30 seconds) on that last round so I went for it to0. I thought to myself, if he’s going for it, so should I.”
This statement hammers home the fact that our group training environment is silently motivating and contagious. For a workout method that is highly individual, class hours can exhibit a tremendous team effort to complete the task at hand. We see another athlete pushing a little harder one day and it rubs off onto our own training. We see an athlete struggling through a workout and a small nod of acknowledgement can get them back on track.
Have you been midway through a suckfest of a workout and had another athlete’s actions inspire you to refocus and work harder? Post to comments.
