About This Activity
6th Annual Treasure Island STREND
July 25th, 2015
Join us on Treasure Island and test your fitness while directly supporting the Wounded Warrior Project with this unique STRength and ENDurance event known as STREND. The STREND event has been around since 1992 and was created by Ed Bugarin, an operator with the elite counter-terrorist unit Delta Force.
5 upper body disciplines (Bench press, Wide grip pull-ups, Military shoulder press, Close grip chins, and Bar dips and a 3 mile run for time make up this Fitness event. Each discipline is completed for max reps and the weight you lift is based on your bodyweight or a percentage of your bodyweight.
You have 3 minutes per discipline to complete your max reps and rest before the next discipline starts. The start of each 3 minute period will bemarked by a loud horn. There is no stopping or racking of the weight during your lifts. You are doing one set to failure on all of the disciplines.
After completing your final upper body discipline (Bar dips) you'll start the run on the next 3 minute signal. Your run time (converted to a decimal) will be divided into your total reps to create a ranking known as a STREND factor. Example: 100 reps divided by 20:30 (20.5) = 4.878 STREND factor.
Grip Width- 83% of Elbow to Elbow width measured behind back. This grip will be used on Bench press, Pull ups and Shoulder press. Close grip chins and dips are not regulated by grip width, but do have maximum and minimum allowable areas for adjustment.
