Go. Do. That is all. Simple enough advice but when you are subjected to days of endurance and mental toughness, you have to keep it simple.

Workouts with hundreds, if not thousands of reps prep him for his next challenge and he shares some of the specific workouts he is using for training. For instance, he recently did 10,000 burpees in one month. Enjoy this episode of Athlete On Fire and get out there and do something amazing!
