If a run takes 3:10, athlete has no time for pull-ups and 50 seconds remaining for deadlifts.
From australianherogames.com: "Corporal Baird died how he lived - at the front, giving it his all, without any indecision on June 22, 2013. He will forever be remembered by his mates and the soldiers he served within the 2nd Commando Regiment.
The 600 metre sprint represents him leading a team into a gunfight at full charge, an action he was known for so don’t hold back; he never did.
He always programmed pull-ups, deadlifts and burpees to maintain his high standard of fitness.
These movements were common on Baird’s battlefield; pulling himself over a wall, carrying a wounded mate, or taking cover when the enemy started firing.
The ‘rest’ is recovery and preparation time for the next round, or in Baird’s case the next course of action on the battlefield."
