Manage episode 365981455 series 1259416
The OCR Underground Show is the best podcast for training tips to help you with your next obstacle course race.
In this episode, I share my thoughts on the Big Bear race setup after teaching the Spartan OS course. I also talk about a research study that looked at the benefit of performing high-rep strength training on endurance performance. Or lack thereof.... And I get into my thoughts on training for max effort versus exposing yourself to different positions and postures. Strength training isn't just about lifting heavy weights. If you want to use your training to help you become more durable, listen to this one.
And finally, I chat with Scott Knowles from the I Am A Spartan Podcast. It is always great chatting with Scott about OCR. He shares his passion on racing and how it got into OCR and why he started his podcast. Scott also give a snapshot of what his training routine is typically like and he shares some insight on taking on some bigger races like the Ultra Beast.
