Can you survive a military workout?

Alex Connor

Early-morning workouts can be a pain, but when it’s done with one’s brothers and sisters in arms, it can be a little easier.

The ISU ROTC units hosted the Workout Day for Warriors at 6 a.m. Wednesday at the Lied Recreation Athletic Center and did what was called a modified armistice workout. The workout consisted of 11 reps of sit-ups, squats and burpies, followed by a lap and the workout done again, but doubled.

Participants were encouraged to do as many sets as they could.

The actual armistice workout, however, is a bit more challenging. Could you do it?
