    I finished strong. I completed them all except 2. I ended up not having enough dirt in a bucket so I had to do burpees even though I did the obstacle. And I tried 3 times to do the rope climb, which ended up in me doing burpees. I LOVE the barb wire, spear throw, and tire flip.

    I used an dry case pouch and I would recommend gloves for the burpees because the floors at most of the runs ive been at have cut me up pretty bad. As far as climbing rope or other stuff in gloves, it's a personal preference.

    If the officials accepted that technique that's cool with me. it's so much easier than with the push up and the jump. I'm training using the full form though just in case and to help get me conditioned for this race. Thanks for the info.

    I learned burpees a different way when I was kid. My push up needs work & I believe the proper way is with the jump. After a few miles of hills, I didnt care about perfect form. I was going by what the majority was doing & it was what I was doing. I'm doing it in December so i'll be aiming for proper technique this time.

    hi, I noticed that when you had to do the penalty burpees you didn't do the push up or the jump. was that typical for everyone there? i'm doing this in january at the same location. thanks

    @JonAA0880 You're also gonna drag rocks with rope, buckets of sand for at least 50 ft. Upper body strength exercises is the way to go, pull ups all the time! HOpe to race with ya one day bro!

    @JonAA0880 I'll try my best to remember bro, There were at least 8+ walls and at least 1 over 9feet, at least 2 barbed wire sets, train your legs for lots of hill climbing cause I was getting major cramps because I didn't expect the course to be that hilly. If you can train on the spear throwing cause that'll cost you 30 burps and work on a lot of balance exercises. I hope that helps bro. It's diff for every course that's why just train for the worst! ENjoy Bro!

    @smokey720 I don't know if I want to do the beast, I feel I might as well do the Death Race instead of the beast, but it's early in the year lol Have you done the trifecta yet?
