Spartan Race is known, in part, for our challening WOD series (Workout of the Day).  We combine, speed, strength, endurance, and agility that is a well-rounded training approach.  In an effort to show you how we eat our own cooking, we embarked on a journey about 30 days ago to see how two very different athletes manage the Spartan WOD’s for 30 full days in a serie we called “He says, She Says.”. Carrie Adams aka Shawty Spartan and Jason Jaksetic aka the Barn Beast got to work for 30 days bringing you the play by pay.  Here’s the wrap up and list including an epic soundtrack!   Get some, Spartans!  To sign up to receive them directly in your inbox go to www.spartanrace.com/wod.

This 30 days is a great program to get you either in fighting shape, get you ready for a race (Carrie and Jason both had races during their 30 days) or off the couch and feeling better.  We each have individual goals, different terrain, equipment, etc.  Do what you can to make it work and push yoursevles!  Send us your videos and pictures of you going through the challenge and getting Spartified and get signed up for a race!

She says: There comes a time in your life when you have what you want or you have excuses and reasons why you don’t.  If you haven’t started, start today.  If you have been training, go further, faster, and push harder.  Whatever it takes.

He says: Always go too far, because that’s where you’ll find the truth

Hill repeats.
Few things generate explosive power, VO2 max, muscular endurance, & management of pain better than well performed hill workouts.
Suggestion -Find a hill that takes between 45-60 seconds to sprint up full speed.
20 min w/u jog
4-10 repeats up hill, sprinting on 2 min recovery
15 min c/d jog
(Recommendation: Line up 4-10 pieces of logs/builders at bottom of hill for transport to top!)

I’m a puker.  Yep.  Barn Beast weakness #217

During Ironman training when I was shooting for a sub 9hr time I really needed to up intensity at points.

I learned how to puke over the handle bars at full speed without interrupting my cadence.
