Has anyone got any good physical challenges they have done or know of? I am thinking things like 1.5mile run in a certain time, being able to deadlift XXX times bodyweight, squat XXX times bodyweight etc things that if you could accomplish all of them you could think of yourself as a good well rounded athlete.
And just for fun if anyone has ever done a stupidly hard workout/challenge post that too!
I’ll start off on that one-
When training for my first MMA fight when i was 16 yo i read in a Randy Couture training book that one of his toughest workouts was to get someone the same sort of weight as yourself then run with that person as far away from the starting point as possible for 15 minutes, you must then stop, and ‘piggy back’ or firemans carry each other back to the start as fast as you can, as soon as you are too tired to carry them you put them down then they carry you. It was BRUTAL and the guy who i did it with was about 20lbs heavier than me at the time haha
