Last weekend, the very first Puma 24-Hour Trainathlon took place. An extreme endurance training challenge, the Trainathlon saw teams overcoming a series of individual and cooperative challenges that put their strength and endurance to the test.
The competition took place in five stages with each stage lasting six hours and these pushed participants to their limits, especially in the third stage – which had lasted all the way through the night. Types of challenges included a combination of body-weight exercises as well as those involving weights.
A few of the exercises involved in the Trainathlon, had included Push Ups, Sit Ups, Shuttle Runs, Russian Twists and Deadlifts. After each round, teams with the lowest scores would be eliminated, leaving three to compete in the Grand Finale which takes place later this month.
Here is the competition format in more detail. (See Charts)
