NO. The Spartans do not avoid obstacles, they overcome them!
We strongly discourage athletes from avoiding obstacles without at least trying because it is disadvantageous compared to athletes who will at least have tried to pass them.
In addition, what is the point of participating in an obstacle course at this time? However, if you had to avoid an obstacle after trying but you simply can not pass, there will still be a penalty of 30 BURPEES that you must absolutely perform before you can start again.
This is valid for ALL obstacles ... so this could represent a significant number of BURPEES, the best is to motivate yourself to pass the obstacles.
You did not come here to do your jogging !!
