Message From Former ZM Wrestler Mitchell Watkins

A message from former ZM Wrestler Mitchell Watkins:

“Today, for the military I ran 9.5 miles.  12 stations.  5 rope climbs.  80 pull ups.  100 sit ups.  100 dips.  Fireman’s carry 1/3 mile per person.  120 push ups.  50 burpies.  Carry 60 pounds up hill 1/4 mile.  3 hill sprints.  20-story building, run stairs up and down twice.  100 lunges.  All on 3 hours of sleep and carrying a 35 pound pack 1/6 of the way.  Easily the toughest workout of my life.  Sad to say but at that point it wasn’t the Marines or family or anything keeping me going.  It was honest to god knowing that I had done that stuff at higher stakes (team wrestling state/sections).  So I can honestly say thank you ZM Wrestling for that. It came in handy!!”

Pine Island is having a 2 night camp for Grades 3 through 12 November 10th and 11th.  Registration form is here for anyone interested.
