I apologize for the delay in posting the 5th and final day of our boot camp workout. This workouts was inspired by a lot of Seal Team training I have seen in various videos. Obviously I modified it and became creative with the tools that I had. This workout is designed into 4 different quarters to match the 4 quarters of a high school basketball game. As the workout progressed it incorporated more teamwork to complete each task.
I really wanted to make this workout extra special so we arrived at the Fort Myers Beach Pier at 6:15 AM. It was a pitch black, cool and windy morning. As the workout progressed the sun rose slowly and when it was finished, it was Sunrise!
