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.
Here's yesterday's Spartan training. Looking back this doesn't seem so bad, but it was really tough at the time 😥😅 -1000m row -5×5 barbell complex -3x 25 sec woodway curve sprint+ 25 Goblet squats (those Sprints 😣😣😣) -3x sled push and pull + upper body semi-rope climbs Who else is gearing up for a Spartan?! 💪💪💪 Ps. The whole video is sped up a bit to fit it in, except I left the sprints at normal time.
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.
