Hitting the Wall

Many of us consider this obstacle to be completely impossible for mere mortals. When you get closer it may as well be a skyscraper because there is no chance in your mind that you are getting up – thank goodness for team mates!
Ah could someone give us a PUSH please?

To do it alone you’ll need to be physically very strong, and must be able to reach the +- 8ft lip.
The dynamic will depend on the individuals but it’s great for teamwork!
This is not the most terrifying obstacle, it’s hard but not scary.
Your lats, biceps, abs and lower back need to be strong to get up but it’s over with quickly.

Teamwork
It can actually be loads of fun getting through this one with your team, and very rewarding. You’ll need to decide who lifts who and in what order. If you have someone in your team who CAN get up then they should obviously go last, but don’t make him lift everyone or he may be too tired to get himself up. Get your heavier people up first while there are bodies on the ground to help.There are several ways to lift eachother:

Going SOLO?
If you are doing it alone, do not dispair, there are PLENTY of fellow competitors happy to lend a hand! However, if you are entering a division that does not allow assistance and you have not done this by yourself before, you could be in trouble. Doing the wall unassisted requires technique, agility and upper-body strength. The best way to practice this is build a wall. If not, draw a line on a wall and practice this technique.
