Back again with more incredible training tips for your next Spartan Race or other OCR.  Excited there are no more burpees in Spartan Competitive heats or upset?  Many have strong opinions on the rule change.  I share some of my thoughts on this current topic.  

In my research review I share some really cool info on training to failure.  This study looked at training to failure vs non failure, plus using heavy or light loads.  Some interesting findings that will help shape your training.  

In the Inside Mike's Mind segment I talk about the interference effect.  When you understand how exercise physiology works it helps you discover the best way to set up your training.  Certain training will limit adaptations when they compete with each other and this is how strength and conditioning works.  I share the details behind the interference effect and how you can minimize it with your training.

And finally I chat with SGX Coach Joe Bala.   Joe is the owner of Joe Bala Fitness.  He is a  former engineer turned fitness pro and is currently SGX Level 2 certified, Mental Health Warrior, and Ninja Warrior.  Battling depression and anxiety on a regular basis Joe has been able to over come these challenges and help his clients become the best version of themselves.  Joe shares some of his keys to training and some interesting brain training activity he is using.
