Epic Quest to become a Spartan


Recommended Posts

So, I've always been interested in ancient Sparta (Even before the movie 300), and they were very different from most of the other greeks in way's beyond their most notable military strength. I have recently begun to form a training plan and improve my own personal discipline and diet in an effort to mirror the physical prowess of an ancient day Spartiate. So here are some of the goals I've set for myself to help guide and measure my progress along this path.

  • Complete a set of 50 push-ups (no breaks) (Achieved July 3, 2013)
  • Complete a set of 50 pull-ups (no breaks)

Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength.


Courage is looking fear right in the eye and saying, get the hell out of my way, I've got things to do.


Its not who you are that holds you back, it's who you think you're not.
