    Good reference to safety……for those out there who wonder the safety aspects of training at MVT.

    For anyone wondering, under 4 minutes is achievable on this- with multiple people doing so at CQBC.

    Thanks

    I did a very truncated assessment, I’m mid 50s decent shape, but cannot do the burpees in strict form with any weight.

    Well thought out test though and it turned into a very good workout.

    Yeah, I was doing the lunges wrong. Thanks for the video!

    B-) yep, same here……forward lunges, and was counting round count (L and R = 1)……just shows how each person interprets something differently…

    Forward lunges are fine. Whatever type of lunges so long as they are alternating. Count every time a knee goes down.

    Also burpee variations are fine, so ling as it is some version ofnstarting shoulders over hips, chest to the ground, back up. Single leg at a time, whatever works.

    So when Max did his lunges, he held his hands in front of him about chest level. Was this to help with balance? Johnnymac held his at his sides.

    If anything it makes balance harder, not easier. What we DON’T want is for people to use their arms to push off their thighs to stand up on the lunges. On the ranges, you’ll have a rifle in your hands and won’t have that luxury.

    I just did this in my hallway at home(it’s raining) with my pc on. I clocked in at 5:23 with a head/chest cold. It kicked my ass but I think I can get it down to at least 5:00 when I’m better. It’s not as intimidating as I thought and totally doable with a little work.

    Edit: my pc weighed in at 20.2 pounds. Need to invest in some lighter weight plates.
