Spartan Beast Training Plan: Day 8 - Pulling

Spartan Beast Training Plan: Day 8 - Pulling
Presented by Spartan Training®

Week 1 is always the toughest, Spartan. Congratulations on making it through. You are now committed and well on your way to becoming a Beast.

This week, we’ll take the foundation we built last week, and add significant strength. Our weight should be increasing while our repetitions decrease. You will aim for the same level of Rate of Perceived Exertion (RPE), but you should be reaching that rate much sooner in a set. This will be our theme for the week.

Today, we pull.


This workout is designed in supersets. Complete each exercise in corresponding number once before beginning back at the start of the set. Adequate sets, repetitions, and intervals are listed based on the aim of each exercise.
