Here is a list of the exercises you need to do
1. Row – Men 500m , Women 400m
Set the rower to level 10. The clock starts when you begin your first stroke.

5. Press-ups– Men 30 reps , Women 30 reps
It doesn’t count if… you’re more than a fist-width’s height above the floor at the bottom of the move
6. Box- Jumps – Men 30 reps, Women 20 reps
It doesn’t count if… your feet don’t land on top of the deck (tapping the sides isn’t good enough).
7. Squats – Men 20kg Barbell 30 reps , Women 10kg Barbell 30reps
Hold the bar across the back of your shoulders and stand in front of the bench. Squat down until your backside touches the bench.
It doesn’t count if… you don’t squat low enough to touch the bench or go to stand fully afterwards.
8. Run – Men 1 km , Women 800m,
Get on the treadmill and set it to any speed you can manage. Your time finishes as soon as you reach the required distance.
