I completed the Spartan Race Super Malaysia on the 9 July 2017 at Nexus International School Malaysia, Putrajaya. The distance was 14.2km with 29 obstacles. It was a tropical and humid environment.

Burpee is a full body workout! It will burn fat, build endurance and works your entire body so hard that exhausted athletes have been known to stop mid-burpee workout and, be huffing and puffing, use what little breath they can muster to curse profusely.
