Spartan WOD for Friday, 10.5.12
The burden which is well borne becomes light.
Spartan Pancake Carry
At Spartan HQ we train with our gluten free Spartan Pancakes. Nothing will help you develop your core better than carrying an irregular, ever-changing mass of weight up a mountain. If you don’t have an incline that lasts 1-3 miles, do repeats on a shorter hill by you. No hills? Stairs.
The goal of this workout is to build muscular endurance and build strength while you walk, jog, or run (if possible) yourself and your pancake up as much elevation for possible for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
You should feel the burn in your legs, shoulders, core, and lungs. Keep the pace controlled and consistent throughout the whole effort. If you are feeling good, max out the effort for last 3 minutes of your workout. For added arm strength do NOT shoulder the pancake but carry it in your arms before you.
Chris Davis had a good Spartan Pancake friend named Wilson who he carried through all his training.. You can see him in the following video that will reconfigure your notions of what is possible:
