For this week’s workout you will need a partner. This is a perfect workout to get you ready for the team death race. Try to choose someone that is a similar size to you unless your looking for a challenge. Push your partner to the limit to get the most out of this workout.
Time to buckle down and do some push ups. This week, Marshall gives us a wide variation of push ups to help strengthen multiple muscles. These different push ups will help strengthen your shoulders, triceps, abdominal, and pectorals muscles. How many can you do?
A lot of push and pulls this week to help strengthen your upper body. Great for those times you are either wrestling the bull in the traveling death race or helping your teammate get over a wall in the team death race.
