Gotta from Men Health 2014 official page
|MYSTERY OBSTACLE For the 1st time ever!
Test your five senses like no other race can.
By keeping you in the dark, we promise this to be a challenge you’ll remember!
This is the tricky one as i dont know what it is gonna be, but i love surprises so it better be a tough one !
| OBSTACLE 1: CURVE ANALYSIS [NEW]
Pull yourself over 1.5m high cement pipes.
this should be easy as we always need to clear the low wall in the army!
| OBSTACLE 2: BALANCE SHEET [NEW]
Balance yourself across 2-inch wide beams.
needless to say we are all so familiar with this, we did a even higher one in army SOC!
| OBSTACLE 3: WIRE HOUSE [NEW]
Untangle yourself in this 4m long web of bungee cords
This can be a little tricky, hopefully the hole between the ropes is bigger, if we trip on this it is not gonna be fun anymore!
| OBSTACLE 4: PEAKS & TROUGHS [NEW]
Scale up and descend these 3m high sloping structures
Sliding down to victory always seems like a fun thing!
| OBSTACLE 5: WORKLOAD
Carry a 20kg sandbag and run 100m.
Wet sandbag could add on additional weight to the 20kg, this might not be as easy as it seems. putting it on one side of the shoulder should make the whole 100m run easier.
| OBSTACLE 6: LEAP OF FAITH [NEW]
Take a 2m leap of faith
I think i am gonna jump straight down for this!
| OBSTACLE 7: LATERAL MOVE
Power through two sets of parallel bars
walking with the parallel bar could be a killer for most, but there is a technique to it, try swing your body from left to right as you move and let the momentum carry you over!
| OBSTACLE 8: THE NETWORK
Climb up and down a 3.2m high 3-ton truck using a rope web.Your task:
hopefully i dont get stuck on this! after all the running, for this obstacle. take it slow.
Seems like this year they remove the mud water obstacle which is great in my opinion. Anyway have a good run everyone, take it slow and remember to use your foam roller to warm up your muscles to get more flexibility during the obstacle tomorrow. Proper stretching is a must and remember to stay hydrated by drinking lots of water tonight! See you all tomorrow!
