Congrats to the following Pit Monsters for taking on the physically demanding and mentally grueling 24 Hour CrossPIT Challenge!
Unlike the first 24 Hour CrossPIT Challenge nearly three years ago, in addition to the workout a new element was added...the "...but did you die, die." Every 2 hours, a single six sided die was rolled. The number corresponded to the physical or mental challenge instilled upon EVERYONE no matter the time. Once completed, the current Pit Monster would continue their workout. These were the outcomes of the die:
- Run around the Sunset Station parking lot (appx 1/4 mile)
- Jump rope for 3 minutes
- Listen to Polka music blasted on high for 30 minutes
- Open the doors and turn off the AC for 30 minutes
- Hold a horse stance and do continuous sprawls in group for 2 minutes (the Pit Wave)
- Everyone counts out 10 sit ups to be done together (100)
As luck would have it, we got every outcome....Polka music, Sunset Station run, AC off, and jump rope twice!
At the end of the 24 Hours the majority of the group completed 15 workout rounds which was approximately 2-2.5 hours of bag work, body weight movement, balance jumps, ninja star throwing, explosive and static medicine ball movements. This was in between bouts of sleep where one was lucky to get a straight hour of rest, if that.
The 24 Hour CrossPIT Challenge is more a test of mental fortitude in addition to the physical toll it takes on your body. At the end of the 24 hours you can say you accomplished something crazy, out of your comfort zone, and bonded with your Pit Ohana.
