Civilian Military Combine is coming! One of the more unique and rewarding events on the calendar, CMC requires you to test your strength to it’s limits before heading out on a course to test your endurance. No silly costumes here, it’s all business, all pushing your limits – and hopefully finding those limits were WAY further than you expected.
The Strength portion comes from The Pit – a 7 minute AMRAP (As Many Reps As Possible) workout that cycles you through 7 push presses (75lbs for men, 45lbs for women), 7 kettle bell swings (40lbs for men, 26lbs for women) and 7 burpee box jump overs (20″ box). It’s brutal – and fun!
On Sunday, we got the chance to work with Rich Borgatti of Mountain Strength Crossfit in Winchester, MA – he opened his facility out of hours and invited us in … there, we got the opportunity to warm up, work on technique for each of the Pit elements, then run through a timed and judged Pit session.
If you’re interested in Civilian Military Combine – check out the video’s we shot of the Pit workout – and remember, you have a 5 mile OCR immediately after 🙂
