FULL MISSION PROFILE - "Chimera"
Workout is compliments of Brassring Fitness - Rob Ord
These workouts are based on a fictitious military mission.
An American Civil Engineer was captured 8 weeks ago by a militant Islamic group while traveling with his Afghani business partner in Kabul. Both men were initially taken hostage; however the partner was released after a ransom was paid. There has been no mention of the kidnapping to the media in order to keep publicity from endangering the Americans life and making him more difficult to find.
The kidnappers have consistently moved from location to location, making a rescue operation impossible. Recently, however, reliable intelligence data has come in that places the kidnappers and their hostage in a training camp near Kabul for an extended duration.
The camp is located at about 8000' in a mountain region in Easter Wardak Provience. It is heavily fortified and approachable only from a lower elevation. There are expected to be a large number of enemy forces there, which is presumed to be he reason they are not planning on moving their hostage.
Deploy two separate fire teams to:
1. Safely rescue hostage
2. Capture any enemy combatants
3. Destroy camp with incendiary grenades and high explosives.
You have an option to pick 1 of 2 workouts.
Deploy two separate fire teams
Fire Team Alpha
3 rounds of
- 400m run
- 25 Burpees
Actions at the Objective:
30 - 20 - 10
- Squat jumps
- Pull ups
- Kettle bell swings (35lbs)
Run 1 mile carrying 45lbs
This workout is a fast paced high energy workout that pushes the cardio-respiratory limits.
Fire Team Bravo
3 rounds of:
- 10 Deadlift (185-250lbs)
- 20 Dead hang pull ups
Actions at the Objective:
21 - 15 - 9
- Thrusters (75-95lbs)
- Knees to Elbows
- 24" Box jumps
2 rounds of:
- Run 200m
- 10 Clean and Jerk (95-135lbs)
This workout is a hard and heavy workout that requires strength and stamina.
We are shooting to get both of these missions completed in under 30 minutes.
