The OCR Underground Show has another great episode to help you train for your next obstacle course race. In this one I share my experience recently at the Spartan Super in Asheville. Plus I share two exciting new announcements.
In the Inside Mike's Mind segment I discuss the concept of adaptation versus demonstration. Sometimes we get confused a little with where our focus should be. We train hard for a reason. To see that carry over into our performance. But often we can get carried away and the goal shifts to simply training hard for no other reason. This segment shares my thoughts on how to focus on quality over quantity.
In my research review I discuss a study looking into ankle mobility and it impact on injuries. Plus I share a simple ankle assessment and exercises to help you improve it.
Finally I have SGX Coach Brad Lane on for a chat. Brad is the owner of It Starts Here Fitness in Warwick Rhone Island. Brad uses OCR training to help develop his culture and community at his facility. Brad shares his insight on all aspects of Spartan Race training from mental toughness, to preparing for terrain, grip, and strength. We discuss a recent article he wrote for Spartan Race on how to take your training to the next level.
