All fixed set patterns are incapable of adaptability or pliability. The truth is outside of all fixed patterns.
- Bruce Lee
Triathletes might have the right idea by cramming three sports into one event. Why settle for one mode of exercise a day when you can maximize your fitness and athletic adaptability in the broadest sense by combining three distinct disciplines together into your own fitness routine?
Tomorrow, try to participate in three different activities, all with varying skills sets and muscle groups worked. This will be a challenge – but the results are big. Who knows what might be around the corner at your next Spartan Race? Be prepared for everything by being ready for anything.
Plan your own triathlon for your workout(s). This could be done back to back to back in one long session, like a triathlon event, or you can try three separate workouts in one day, each with a different sport at its center.
Swim, road bike, run?
Mountain bike, canoe, burpees?
Rock carrying, tire flipping, truck pulling?
What will your 3-some be? Be creative to maximize fun and fitness.
