WOD Saturday 25.01.14

workout of the day WOD

“You just can’t beat the person who never gives up.”
– Babe Ruth

There aren’t many paved roads on our Spartan courses. To prepare, it’s best to go trail running once a week if you can. The irregular terrain will help you build important stabilizing muscles, particularly if you are incorporating weight into your run.

Warm up:
10 minute easy jog.

Main set:
On a 30-minute trail run, every 10 minutes find a rock or log (or bring your own sandbag), and use it for 10 reps of arm curls, shoulder presses, and squats. Add 5 reps each time so that the last set is 20 reps for each exercise.

Why Spartan Race WOD?

Because they are committed. Because they are hungry not to just show up and get through a Spartan Race, but they are hungry to show up and dominate the clock with a peak performance. Spartan Race is here to help you achieve your fitness goals.

As always, take the WOD as a general outline to best meet your current fitness and goals. We can’t dial into every Spartan’s workout schedule. Use these suggested WOD’s as a starting point to develop your own Spartan training regiment.

Please, always consult a medical professional before beginning or performing any of these workouts.

Teamwork is the ability to work as a group toward a common vision, even if that vision becomes extremely blurry.
