Last Homework of the Season - Borrowed from Space Dragons' Hell Week menu

Hello Team,

I'm going to borrow this week’s homework from Space Dragons' Hell Week menu at http://www.spacedragons.org/
Starting 2 weeks before the tournament, Space Dragons recommends entire week of exercises for the team.
They have specific exercise for Monday through Friday.

However, our homework is just to pick one of the days and do it before 7/19/13 Friday 6pm.
Pick an exercise (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday) and do Bronze, Silver, Gold level and let me know by 7/19/13 6pm.

This will be counted toward your Participation Award.

If you want to challenge yourself then you can do the entire week but not required.

Let's do this!

Rules: Do Run1 at the beginning, Run2 at the end.  All exercises in between can be split up however you wish in whatever order you wish, as long as at the end you completed the numbers listed above.  Any exercise that is one-sided (i.e., side planks) means you need to do the amount listed for each side.  For example, if you are doing bronze, you need to do 50 side planks w/ leg lifts on your right side, and 50 side planks w/ leg lifts on your left side.  You can split the side planks up so you do 10 planks, the move on to 20 burpees, and then come back to finish the rest of the planks later.
