The contest includes a 500 meter swim (10 minute break) followed by doing your max push-ups in 2 minutes (2 minute break) max sit-ups in 2 minutes (2 minute break) and max pull ups in 2 minutes (10 minute break) and finishing with a 1.5 mile run.
Part of this challenge included extra points for weight loss and for working out at least 4 times a week. Phil used P90X as his morning workout for the summer and some nights he would also run 3 miles or do the 500 meter swim. Phil had never swam competitively and didn't know the proper form. He pretty much learned by watching you-tube videos on how to swim efficiently and what type of drills to do to learn and improve. When he first started swimming he couldn't even finish the 500 and at the competition he swam it in 13:50!
I was so proud of how dedicated he was to not only Summer of Seals but also to getting healthier.
The final event was yesterday and I was so bummed I couldn't be there to cheer him on! Luckily my Dad went with him and took lots of pictures!
Phil ended up getting 1st place in his age category (18-29) and lost 24 lbs! I am so happy that he was able to achieve his goals. Good job babe!
