6-Week Hard(er) to Kill Challenge - Monday 20130331

It's here! 

And it is starting off the same way as last time with the BAR HANG challenge, but this time the prize will be a $50 Rogue Fitness gift card! Keep reading for more details. 

What is the real reason you train? There are plenty of reasons to workout…but how or why do you train? That’s right, train!

There is a type of training…a training that few people pursue:

  • Training to be harder to kill.

The definition of ‘Harder to Kill’

  • Having the mental toughness and physical edge to be ready to perform at your maximum potential at anytime.

In a nutshell

  • This 6-week challenge is all about general physical preparedness and strength.
  • We are going to get stronger, faster and harder to kill…seriously
  • ALSO, what’s different than last time, is there will be a few nutritional and mental toughness challenges to keep you on the right path. This one is ALL INCLUSIVE!

So there is the 6-week challenge that all should participate in, if you can, but then there is the secondary part of the challenge…

Cash prize challenge details:

  • Each week there will be a challenge for that week (Posted every Monday), i.e. a simple physical challenge like as many push-ups as possible, or lunges, etc.
  • You will FILM yourself doing the challenge
  • Post that video to YouTube (or Vimeo) then provide the link in the designated portion of ‘The Really Point’ [VIEW HERE].
  • If you win, you get a $20-$50 gift certificate to Rogue Fitness!!

This will be happening each week! So six total shots at getting the cash prize!

My wife put a description of me on her blog that sums it up quite nicely. "Loves – CrossFit, reading for knowledge, eating delicious things, rainy days, his puppy Berkeley, a good cup of dark coffee, a nice dark beer, pizza, taking pictures, having deep conversations, his family – more than anything, exploring new places, and Wife." I also enjoy blogging, but that's pretty much me.
