    Zeeshan, if you are going to rest then clearly you are not at par with the minimum endurance needed for SEALFit.

    Okay I made that up.

    Atomic isolation of airsquats: 87 in 2 minutes
    Target : 120

    Notes: Knocked off. Intense burning of vastus medialis (VMO). Had to abort epsom salt balt as bent knee in bathtub exacerbated it. Counterintuitive. Left bath and straightened knee to heal. It went away soon. This makes me ask, what to do when experiencing a muscle spasm or paralysis given a hypothetical situation as Kokoro camp?

    Nutrition: Semi-fasted except for Powerade.
    Supplements: Cannabis, Kombucha and well hydrated with Powerade before attempt.
    Psychology: Looking at the stop watch run down time helped pace it.
    Spirituality: There is this certain “Egoness” to trying to crank down 120 in 2 minutes. But it may be used to fuel obsession. Wasn’t in clear “mu” head.

    Again, breaking down each component into sub-atomic parts to connect them into a one glued joint of the optimal PST score. Airsquats not only tests pain tolerance but endurance too!

    Tom, I am trying to solidify my PST baseline. So this is to establish a foundation for PST. I think the minimum requirement for PST is:

    Push ups in 2 min
    Air squats in 2 min.
    Sit ups in 2 min.
    Pull ups in one effort on the bar. ( if you come off the bar, your done)
    1 mile run time in boots and BDU pants if you can.

    My 2 cents:

    ‘I don’t consider myself a particularly vain person.’ itself is vanity.

    It is much better to be motivated by the carrot of pursuit of excellence than by the stick of self-abusive ‘nothing is good enough mentality’. I understand SEAL creed is “The only easy day was yesterday” yet at the same time our men and women in uniform takes great pride in doing their duties.

    Constantly setting up for failure is self-abusive. The key is to take great pride in one’s accomplishments without being complacent.

    A Taoist loves what she does. That is why she does nothing, yet leaves nothing undone.

    Airsquats: 77

    Notes: Isolated airsquats only. Trying to capitalize on the strength. Tried to crank out as many as I can in 2 minutes. This simple minimalist Spartan 2-minute workout felt like WOD. Used coffee and high intensity music to cheat. My overall target is to evolve to 100. Feel less s***y than previous one where I felt like trying to do too many instead of focusing on one.

    Was not able to edit/delete message above.

    Post-workout note: 1 minute rest in between/felt horrible/almost felt like throwing up/massive sweat/mentally disheartened and gutted that couldn’t even crush the basic standards/interested to see how I will evolve

    Same question as Oscar: are rests allowed? (High plank for push ups etc.)
