The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Tough Mudder

    This might seem bizarre but I decided to sign up for this tough mudder thing.

    http://toughmudder.com/events/pennsylvania/

    Here is a link to the recommended training:

    The training seems bizarre, I was wondering if anyone else had any ideas how to train for this crazy thing. I think I can do everything I just don't know if I can scale a 12 foot wall without help haha.

    American cars are like fat people, sure, they have a lot of power, but they're not built well, and they have all that useless weight, plus they make both make funny noises.

    feel free to aim me, nejar462 im on a lot. Don't know much to warn you dudes, but im good at conversations.

    Right now I'm doing there recommended routine which is a lot harder than it looks, however, before that I do atlas stone walks, a jungle gym walk, and tire flips.

    I'm going to add in some burpees and if I can find a rope to climb I'm going to do that too.

    I've completed two of their events so far - Bear Creek in May 2010 and most recently Tri State. I had an absolute blast each time! I'm signed up for Bear Creek in 2011 as well.

    If you can run the distance, you should be good to go. The obstacles aren't particularly tough if you are in decent shape. I will say the mountain at bear creek is just brutal - I would make sure your conditioning is top notch - it really hits your quads too.

    If you look at the videos for the Tri State event, I'm the fool dressed like Dorothy. It's just a fun event to help a great cause. The teamwork and camaraderie they talk about - it really exists at the events...and it's just an awesome feeling. You are going to have a great time!

    Oh, and the water is effing cold!!!!!

    I'll be there Saturday - I'm not tough enough for both days...yet. It is a lot, but I think 50 or 60 bucks right off the bat goes to WWP. Don't worry about being alone....everyone really does help everyone else out...you'll be able to find someone to stick with no problem, if you choose.

    The hill is brutal, at least it was for me last year...my best advice is get your endurance and conditioning up. The obstacles aren't really strength related - at best you need to lift your bodyweight...even then people WILL help.

    Burpees are great for fitness mate

    I have a friend that does all this crazy stuff seems like hell to me but he runs the distance of the race for training 3times a week.

    He also does 2 minutes of push ups, sit ups, burpees, start jumps, squat jumps etc etc every 5minutes or something like that.


    Might work for you Either way best of luck mate! Let us know how it goes yeah?
