Need help training for your next OCR? We have everything you need here. We review up to date research and training tips from some of the top coaches out there.
In this episode you get a two for one. We have the Ohio Beast and Sprint Spartan Race Recap as well as the Citi Field Stadium Recap. I also review an ancient memory technique that will help you never fail the memory obstacle again. If you have failed this one in the past, you know how frustrating it is to do unneeded burpees. This simple drill will give you the tools you need to nail the obstacle and probably never forget your code again.
We also have SGX Coach Mike Confer from MROC Training in Oceanside, CA. Mike was on our show just a few weeks ago but we wanted to get him back in to go over the Citi Field race plus talk about some great training tips to help you better prepare for a Spartan Stadium Race. Mike has done quite a few races and gives some great insight whether you are running at the elite level, or just having fun with your first race.
Mike talks about the different obstacles you will see in a stadium race that you won't see in a typical Spartan Race. He reviews how even obstacles you do see in a normal race aren't exactly the same and need to be performed differently, like the Herc Hoist. He explains how to prepare for running downstairs quickly, and weaving through aisles. He even breaks down his training plan to show you what your cross training days look like, track workouts, and obstacle specific days. This is a complete resource for prepping for your next stadium race.
