As part of the Deliberate Discomfort Challenge (the Physical domain), participants will be following a specific workout plan designed by David. This 60-day physical program will focus on balanced fitness, building aerobic stamina, and providing work capacity maintenance. In short, this program is a slow burn that will incrementally challenge you with a balanced structure and approach. The intent is not to destroy you in the gym, but to progressively work toward a goal, build a fitness habit, and grow personal efficacy to prove greatness is accomplished through the mundane of smaller daily tasks.
