50 Pushups, each time you come up tap your shoulder alternating sides.

If you’re a warrior, take a 3 min break and do the workout backwards, from 50 pushups to 25 pushups. For those that want to be gladiators take a 2 min break . Spartans will take 1min 30 seconds or less, which are you? Man or Spartan?
