What is Obstacle Course Racing?
So here’s the definition from Wikipedia:
Obstacle course racing (OCR) is a sport in which a competitor, traveling on foot, must overcome various physical challenges that are in the form of obstacles. Mud and trail runs are combined and the races are designed to result in mental and physical collapse.
Sounds incredibly daunting right… talking about mental and physical collapse but what if I told you that it didn’t have to be this way? That obstacle course races can be and should be fun, yes they will challenge you and they can be very hard but with the right training you can get through to the end and say when’s my next race!
I’ll let you in on a little secret, you may think its only for the super fit but my own mum takes part in Obstacle Course Racing, my mum is nearly 60 and has now represented her country twice at the Obstacle Course World Championships in her age category!
So how do you even prepare for an Obstacle Course Race? With a structured training plan, and a varied workload allowing you to train for whatever an obstacle course will throw at you.
With my help I can get you ready for that Tough Mudder, those Spartan Races or even the Original Tough Guy, where obstacle course racing began, that you or some of your work colleagues have convinced you to take on.
Using functional training methods, I can help increase your upperbody strength and teach you the techniques to get across Monkey Bars and other obstacles in the most efficient way and so that you can learn to save energy to get you through the run sections.
So lets get you ready for that Tough Mudder!!
