Training for Spartan Race

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)

3 supersets:
-25 second Woodway Curve Sprint (These are really tough!)
– 25 goblet squats

3 supersets:
– 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.

    1. The curve treadmill is powered by you instead of electrics. So the faster you run, the faster it goes. Imagine like a hamster wheel. Also because it’s curved it feels like you’re on an incline, and as you are powering the treadmill I feel like they’re way more tough than normal treadmill sprints.
