1ST F – Fitness

Last few days to complete the August Challenge !
1. Complete the Murph Hero WOD
2. Run a 5k 
3. Do a 10 mile ruck
4. Perform 50 burpees straight
5. Perform an old Iron Pax Challenge workout
Tomb Raider says that if 50 PAX complete it, he will crab walk a mile, however long it takes.  If more than 50 PAX complete it, then he’ll do it wearing a ruck on his chest. Keep pushing the boundaries of your perceived fitness limitations. This is acceleration, this is growth.

The September Challenge is to finish all 5 (Week 0 – Week 4) Iron Pax Workouts! Register for Iron PAX HERE and check off your workouts HERE. Lochte says that “If we have 55 PAX complete, and log a score, all 4 weeks, I will do all 4 of the workouts in a row on a Saturday in October!”

IronPax Challenge starts this week! For those of you not familiar, head over to the #iron-pax-challenge channel. Opportunities to complete the workouts are available at these AOs on these days.
