Sloane's TRX Challenge - 6/8

Not that the previous weeks' challenges have been easy, but this week I certainly upped the level of difficulty.  Not only is this week a test of strength, but also a test of endurance.  A combination of upper body and core exercises combined with a full-body scorcher make this workout one to remember.

Participants had to complete 20 reps for each exercise, and in the fastest time possible.  If you can make it through the first exercise without fatiguing, you might have a chance to finish the workout.  However, if you struggle with it, it may be difficult to finish.

Here are the exercises for this week, in this order.

1-Leg Burpee w/ hop L - x20
1-Leg Burpee w/ hop R - x20
Biceps Clutch/Curl Combo - x20
Pike -x20
Pull/Push Combo L - x20
Pull/Push Combo R - x20

Make sure if you attempt this workout that you are warmed up, and hydrated.  If you have any injuries or recent ailments, I would advise that you do NOT perform this workout.  If you have high blood pressure, I would also advise against you participating in this Challenge.

Try to maintain good form for each exercise, especially when fatigue starts to kick in.  Once you start to sacrifice good form, rest and regroup before continuing.  If you cannot finish all exercises with good form, make note of how long you did the workout for, and then try to improve how long you can go the next time.

Good luck and if you do the Challenge, let me know your time.  Can you beat 6:50???
