Summary

Basic plan to prepare you for a Spartan Super, or equivalent obstacle course race. This requires some basic materials: a bucket, sandbag, a car tire, a pull up bar and a dip bar (or a bench will work too). This is meant to be take someone who has completed the Sprint training and make them ready for the next step.
