    Day 18: Body Armour


    "Armour is forged from raw metal melted in a furnace and is chiseled and hammered to attain it's final shape.
    Thus a Spartan must endure a similar process, put their bodies through a 'forge' as well, outlander."


    Result: Level II (Time constraints forced me to drop a level)

    Pull-ups in one go: 20

        R.E.S.P.E.C.T !!!! 20 Pullups... wow. You can be really proud for achieving this level.
        I'm trying to improve my pullup numbers... but way to go.
        Do you have some recommendation on how to increase the max pullup number?

            Thanks dude, yeah, it took quite a while, but I can definitely chalk this up as one of highest personal achievements.

            With regards to some advice, well, I guess, in my opinion, the main thing is to just start.
            What helped me in particular, was the Hero's Journey, and choosing the "Heavy Sword" as weapon of choice.
            That really helped to get to the "10 pull-ups in one go".
            After that I just continued doing pull-ups daily, mixing it up with chin-ups every second day.

                                “So, it would appear that you may yet have the ability to stand among the Spartan warrior. However, always remember, there is always more to learn, to push yourself further. This life is a journey, the destination is always a moving target.”

                                And so comes the end of my time among the Spartan folk. Was quite the difficult journey indeed, but I made it. This will most definitely stay with me for quite some time.
