My training for Spartan Race has definitely upped intensity, and after Spartan Ediburgh I have identified that the main things I need to work on are incline running, general endurance, and grip strength.
Here’s last week’s training with my coach:
1000 metre row warm up
5×5 Barbell Complex (Deadlift + Clean + Push press + Back Squat + Push press)
-25 second Woodway Curve Sprint (These are really tough!)
– 25 goblet squats
– Sled push and pull
– 6 upper body semi-rope climbs
Finished off with some monkey bars practice.
In addition to my training with Coach Chris, I am also running minimum 3 times per week. Then I also have a squat and lower body strength day, deadlift and clean day, upper body strength day.
