April Challenge Invite: Do you have what it takes to be an Army Ranger?

It's time again! The annual right of passage to swing you into Spring is here. It's the Kenzai Ranger Challenge, people. The what?

The Kenzai Ranger Challenge is a 28 day challenge that kicks off on Monday, April 8th. If you sign up and commit, workouts will land in your email inbox every day. This is a challenge and not a full program with diets and daily lessons. But you will get a dope customized banner for your blog, exclusive to Army Ranger Challenge participants only!

*On Day 1, you complete the ArmyRanger Test as a benchmark of your current fitness.

*You do 7 workouts per week featuring a mix of running, jump rope, and rugged body weight based movements.

*You control your diet as you like. This isn't a fat loss course, it's a physical challenge to push your limits.

Sound good? Jump in.

Big Jim Matt is this year's Drill Instructor. To sign up for the challenge, send an email him jim@kenzai.com before the start date. The cut off is firm. No stragglers will be accepted. Rigor and an epic result await.

I'm not in this year. I'm full on with Mind and blasting Iron workouts daily with Head Trainer Thomas. Looking to see a new graduation class though...if you can hack it!

I just saw Jim's announcement and I immediately wanted to sign up but then I was like - "Oh wait, I can't do one pull up or run probably half of a mile without stopping" Haha! It seems one may need to be in a bit better shape than I am at the present moment, or.....??

          @Jennifer - The challenge can always be adjusted to meet you where you are. Pull-ups? How about Lat Swings! Run? How about a Run-Walk. You know you. And we want you to be safe. But ultimately, don't let perfection by the enemy of progress!

          And of course, if you pass this year, you know have a perfect goal to train for next year! Rolling into Ranger (happens in March or April typically) ready to run, pull, push, and sit your way toward peak condition.
