Spartan SGX Week 5 – Walls and Ropes

By Todd M. Cambio | May 13, 2014

This week was the first time we broke out some actual obstacles!  We also took it outside finally!

Resisted Band Sprints Resisted Band Runs

Abs 1 Abs 2

We met in the gymnasium and completed our Spartan Warm Up before going outside for some resisted band work, a hill climb, some Burpees (of course), some push ups, some abs and wall climbing practice!

Monday’s goal: Conquer the WALL!

Thursday’s Goal: Climb the rope!

Rope Climb  Rope Traverse

Mohegan Sun Spartan Team

Thursday’s workout consisted of a full animal movement warm up (Including the Spartan A, B, C’s), some dynamic movements and then onto “CRAZY 8’s” conditioning!  We finished up the session with some rope practice!

Nutrition Task #5: Eat More Berries!  They are loaded with anti-inflammatories, vitamins, minerals and fiber!  They will help you recover quicker after one of these workouts!  They are all super foods so please endulge!

Think blueberries, blackberries, rasberries, cranberries, strawberries, Acia berries, golgi berries, and I’ll even throw in cherries (not sure if they are classified as a berry or not…but its awesome for you!)


Aroo, Aroo, Aroo!

Todd and Mike
