This episode we have more great tips and strategies to help give you an unfair advantage in your next Spartan Race with some awesome training advice.
In this episode we have Brooke Bowen, with RFT Coaching, who gives us a Spartan Race Recap of the Vegas Super Weekend.
In our research review I discuss variable resistance training. This involves using equipment that changes resistance as you perform an exercise. This is an incredible effective tool for building strength and power. Plus it is a perfect way to change up your program if you have never done anything like this. I discuss of few studies that show how effective it is and explain more about how you can apply it to your training.
And finally in our SGX Coach's interview, I have on Andi Hardy with Wired 4 Life. Andi has been an Elite Obstacle Course Racer since 2012 and has multiple top three finishes. Outside of the obstacle course racing world she has several 5K top three finishes, two triathlon top three finishes, and a 10 mile race top three finish.
Not only does she love to race and compete, but loves fitness in general. She gave up a career as an educator to work in the fitness industry. She worked as a coach for the Spartan Race Workout Tour for two years and lead workouts across the country to large groups of people. The participants vary from beginners to advanced athletes. She also coaches and trains individuals and groups outside of Spartan Race through her business called Wired4Life.
In this episode Andi shares her story of climbing out of a very dark place and finding Spartan Racing and fitness to inspire her and others. She had a million excuses to not be successful, but she just ignored them and push through until she reached her goal.
We all have those times where we feel down on ourselves and our situation. Andi shares some of her tips on how you can pick yourself up and reach your goals no matter what.
