Today we will start the Operator Ugly Test (OUT).  Designed by Rob Shaul of Military Athlete, the OUT is a combat readiness test for our Military. In its original configuration, the test is to be completed in 90-105 minutes, but due to time constraints, we will make it a two day event (today and tomorrow).

We chose Rob’s test as a gauge for fitness, not only because it tests all metabolic pathways, but because it is not ours.  In other words, we’re not using a test we designed, and therefore skewed in our favor, to test CFW’s programming and its efficacy.  We try to run this test two or three times per year so you can track your progress.
