Thank you for making the OCR Underground a training resource for your OCR success. This episode is jam packed with useful tips and strategies for your next obstacle course race.
In the Inside Mike's Mind Segment, I share my key concept for staying injury free. We can't eliminate all injury risk, but there are some really simple things you can do to reduce your risk dramatically. If you frequently find yourself dealing with chronic injuries you will want to listen in.
In my Research Review, I found a great article looking at hundreds of studies on static stretching. We have all bought into the idea that you should never static stretch before exercise, but is that really true. Like many things, it depends. I share when it may be appropriate and when it might not be.
And finally I have an awesome interview with SGX Coach Francis Gennarelli from Mud Sweat Tears Crossfit in Verona, NJ. Francis Gennarelli, owner of Mud Sweat Tears / MST CrossFit in Verona, qualified and competed in all 3 Spartan Ultra World Championships in Iceland and Sweden taking 2nd place in his AG in 2019. Death Race finisher, Goruck Team Assessment finisher. CPT, Spartan SGX Coach, and CrossFit L1 trainer.
In this interview I chat with Coach Francis on some of his keys to being successful from a mindset perspective and training perspective when planning for an Ultra Beast or if you are up for a Death Race. He shares why training just can't take place at the gym and your whole like becomes a training ground.
There are some really great nuggets in this one from Coach Francis Gennarelli.
