    I'm pretty impressed with those who were still able to crank so hard on days 3 and 4. The overall beating that takes to do that day after day is not insignificant.

    Day two is the roughest because you're not broken in yet. It's not even the muscles that are the limiting factor. Even with good armor, your sacrum takes a lot of the wear and tear. My shoulder blades were also covered in bruises, and I don't bruise easily.
