"Do you want to know who you are? Don't ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you." --Thomas Jefferson

Muscular Endurance is key to completing a successful race. Today’s high rep count will help to develop strength and endurance that will prove useful late in your race.

For the greatest training effect use light to moderate weight and aim for perfect form and control with each repetition.

For a greater challenge keep your rest time to 1 minute or less between sets.
