- You can try to put a lot of power into your wood chopping swings or go for speed, it’s up to you.
- If you can’t find a 100 yard hill, find the biggest hill you can and run it. You should still be doing the distance, though. If you only have a 50 yard hill, 2 sets of 50 will be the first level instead of 1 set of 100 yards.
- Use less fingers for the push-ups as necessary.
- “Fight” the heavy bag for the rounds. Use every weapon in your arsenal and try to go hard the whole time.
- The punches to the tree are obviously not going to be very hard. Do it as hard as is comfortable for you. Eventually (and I’m talking way down the road), you’ll be able to hit the tree with a moderate amount of power and then, finally, almost as hard as you can. However, it’s going to take a long, long time. If you hit it full-on right of the bat, you’ll have a fun few hours in the emergency room waiting for you and several weeks of wearing a cast as well.
- Counting the weight of the bar, the “bodyweight” bench press, is just that. You’ll load weight onto the bar to however much you weigh and do as many reps as you can. If you can’t do any, lower the weight until you can get a single rep.
- When it says, “Climb 100 or 200 Feet” that does not mean straight up without any gear. What that mean is if you have a 10 foot rope, climb it 10 or 20 times. Or if there is a tree nearby that you can climb 20 feet up into, climb it 5 or 10 times. Be safe, use gear if you have it, and have someone with you, if at all possible.
