Welcome back to another great episode of the OCR Underground Show. A podcast created to help you train and crush your next obstacle course race.
Interested in racing the next DEKA STRONG or DEKA MILE with me? My gym San Diego Premier Training is hosting a combo event on 9/23 and 9/24. We will be having open, team, and kids heats on both days. We would love to see you out there. Check out in the link section where you can register before the event fills up.
In this episode I share a great research review on whether or not you should train to failure. I know I have talked in the past on the topic but there is more and more research coming out on this subject. This study looked at comparing training to failure versus non failure and how it impacts strength, muscle size, and power. Some great takeaways here.
In my Inside Mike's Mind segment I continue from my last episode on becoming more resilient. In the last episode I share my thoughts on bullet proofing your body to make you physically more resilient. This time I chat on some great tips on improving your mental resiliency.
Check it all out in episode 104 of the OCR Underground Show.
