I have never run a Spartan Race. I have only ever participated in one OCR (Obstacle Course Race) EVER! It was years ago and a ton of fun but physically HARD!! So when I got the opportunity to peruse the first portion of this new book on how to become Spartan Fit! I couldn’t pass it up!
Spartan Fit! Is a book outlining a 30 day program that will get you through your first Spartan Race. Spartan race prides itself on pushing each contestant to their limits and wanted to offer a way to help us push ourselves through these books. Here is a description they list….
“31 Days. Transform your Mind. Transform Your Body. Commit to Grit. No Gym Required.
- A 31-day workout and diet plan to prepare for the Spartan Sprint — or to just get you in ultimate shape
- Full-body workouts requiring no gym and no weights
- How to build fitness levels from one race to the next
- Inspiring, motivating stories of Spartans
A complete Spartan training guide, Spartan Fit! arms readers with the strength, knowledge, and grit to never question their potential again, both on and off the race course.”
Joe starts right off by saying look if you are here just for the exercises go to chapter 6. But, that isn’t going to cut it. He talks about how we are our own obstacles and opportunities. I think we have all said that before right? He speaks of adaptation and how there are people that are good at it and bad. Then gives us a 30 day workout and diet plan. Joe also pushes the fact that this program will not only prepare you for a Spartan Race it will prepare you for almost any physical endeavor. He calls being Spartan Fit a way a life and a movement. Makes me curious that’s for sure? As a runner what will help make us more mentally and physically capable? Can one program cover it all? Joe seems to think so!
