I recently came across a YouTube video featuring soldiers at Fort Meade working their way through an obstacle course on the installation.
The 10-minute video from YouTube user Greg Bartholomew shows about a half-dozen men navigating the course.
The course includes: -A grid of tires to step through -Rope climb -Belly crawl under wires -Log balance walk -Several fence and wall climbs
Along the way, the men perform a series of squat thrusts, push-ups, sit-ups and lunges. To me, the hardest task appeared to be when the soldiers were asked—nearly 10 minutes in—to hoist themselves repeatedly onto a ledge using the strength of a single leg.
How quickly do you think you could make it through the course?
