Welcome to the OCR Underground Show.

Your best resource for all things to help you train better for your next obstacle course race.  Each episode I cover training strategies plus chat with other experts to get other insight into smarter ocr training.  

In this episode I share more information about my latest project the Certified OCR Specialist certification coming out soon.  To get on the waitlist for early access click here:  https://ocr-underground.newzenler.com/f/certified-ocr-specialist-waitlist

I also dive into some keys areas of mental training.  While this seems like a secondary part of training, there is no denying how much impact the mental game has on performance.  In this podcast I review the 3 areas that most will need improvements in mental training and specific strategies on improving them.  

In my research review, I look at the debated topic of protein intake.  Specifically we look at research on the upper limit of protein consumption.  Is it true that you cannot absorb more than 30g of protein in one feeding?  We look at new research that provided 100g of protein and see some interesting results.  I also look at some factors for protein consumption as we age.  

And finally, in my interview segment, I have on coaches Joel and Luke Hayes from Trio Fitness Training.  Brothers Joel and Luke Hayes are personal trainers specializing in coaching athletes in Obstacle Course Racing, Hybrid Competitions, and Tactical Competitions with their company Trio Fitness Training. They've been racing in OCR competitively since 2017, and since the more recent growth of Hybrid events, they've competed in dozens of events, and coached athletes to the Deka World Championships as well as other hybrid competitions. Their specialty is tailoring training specifically to individual athletes so that the athlete is put in the best possible position to progress and succeed.

They discuss some of their philosophies with training for both OCR and hybrid events.  Also, they explain a really cool project they have been working on called the OCR's Greatest.  This is an incredible program to bring about awareness for more local OCR events.  Listen in on how you can help out local OCR races and win prizes.
