SUMOskinny magazine is the ultimate guide to college life. Part local, part national, and all college.
So you think you’re in shape? Prove it. These summer time extreme challenges will push every muscle in your body to the limit. But I can promise you, crossing the finish line, or reaching the end of a program makes it well worth it. Get ready for the craziest day of your life at the Warrior Dash, in Amesbury MA, a 5K through swamps, over fire, up rope ladders and under barbed wire. June 25th or 26th will be the most hard-core day of your life. There’s water and bananas provided for free through out the race. But, the best part is each competitor gets a free beer ticket! Starting 30 minutes before the first wave of dashers, there’s beer and food available for purchase, and live bands playing all the way ‘til three hours after the start of the final wave. The waves of dashers go from 8am to 6:30pm on Saturday and 10am to 3pm on Sunday. Enter at www.warriordash.com for only $50 you get entrance into the race, a warrior dash helmet, a T-shirt, a medal, and of course a free beer. The Warrior Dash not extreme enough for you?? Add onto that course at the Hoppin’ Mad Mud Run on May 22nd at 11am. This is a 10K on road and off road run with hills, tire obstacles, 5-foot walls, hay bails, and the final mud pit. This is similar to the Warrior Dash, but a little more ballsy with a little more than 6 miles added on! Registration is $50 per person with music, plenty of food, drinks, Ipswich Ale and Cody Brewery sponsoring the event, there’ll be no lack of relaxation following the event. Do it. You won’t.

(photo from bostonbootcamp.com) Ever seen the sweaty, panting men and women running around the Boston Common in the morning? I walk by thinking, “HAH that sucks.. I’m fine with my skinny Starbucks latte in my hand, walking away.” But, later in the day the thought always crosses my mind that I should have been joining them. So lets do it! www.ultimatebootcamp.com outlines the co-ed efforts to get your summer bod back in shape. Workouts include heart-pumping cardio circuits, fun obstacle courses, anaerobic interval training, full-body muscle toning, plyometrics, core workouts, Tabata training, natural movements using body weight, personal timed challenges, active games and creative exercises…phew!
