Iron Sharpens Iron consists of four workouts occurring over four weeks, beginning with workout #1 on Monday, March 9, 2020. A new workout will be released every Monday afternoon during the four weeks of Iron Sharpens Iron. This is a PARTNER competition (female teams + male team, no co-ed teams for this event). Partners will register with a team name and both partners must complete each workout.  After the workout is released, any athlete who has registered will have until 9 pm on Sunday of that week to submit their best score online. Workouts can be done wherever is most convenient for you, whether that’s your home, church, or gym.  All we require is a selfie pic of proof that you completed the workout. 🙂

Highlights from last week:

Last week’s competition was a burpee ladder. We has some epic pictures of how creative athletes got with their jump targets.
