While in the middle of a crazy travel bout, I'm back with another great episode to help you train smarter for your OCR to enhance your longevity in the sport.
After recently getting back from the Chicago Spartan Race, I share my insights on one of the muddiest races I have done. There are some things that are hard to prep for, but many other things you can. I share my thoughts on Plan B training. This will help you get ready for unexpected race day issues.
I also discuss how to create more balance in your training. Most sports are very one side or asymmetrical. This leads to issues later on if you do not address them. Restore balance in your life with some of these great training tips.
In my research review we discuss dehydration. While it is no surprise that dehydration reduces performance, we dive into a study that show how little you can be dehydrated and still see an reduction in performance. We will look into the physiology of what actually happens when you are dehydrated and what you can do about it.
Finally in our Coach's Interview, I have Riley Nadoroznik on from Conviction Fitness in Canada. Riley is a return guest that share some awesome insight into smarter racing. Riley is the SGX coach at Conviction Fitness in Northwest Regina, Canada. He is a best-selling author and experienced nutrition, strength, and conditioning coach with clients all across North America. A former collegiate wrestler, Riley now competes in Spartan Race and StrongFirst’s Tactical Strength Challenge.
In this interview Riley shares his experience and thoughts on going through the Russian Kettlebell Certification (RKC). He also shares some amazing insight into racing too much, training for a trifecta vs. performance goals, deloading, having a longer racing career, and much more. He also discusses his new training log that he released which he is giving away a few copies. Check below on how to win.
