Bringing Out Your Beast On Race Day:
The day before your race should be the most boring day of your life.  Your body can only produce “adrenaline”, “endorphins”, etc. so fast.

One of the biggest mistakes I used to make in my past was to watch an action packed inspirational movie the night before a race.  I would completely drain my adrenaline supplies watching the movie, and then the next morning, I would have nothing.

As determined as I was, my body just couldn’t produce that excited energy that I had experienced the night before.

Staying as relaxed and calm as you can from your last hard workout until just before you start to warm-up for your race, is vital if you want to perform your best.

Thanks Spartan’s!

Your Coach,

    Thanks for the advice Hobie. I watched “300″ the night before the GA Hurricane Heat and Spartan Sprint. Maybe that’s why I finished 56 minutes behind you! I had an awesome time and have my sights set on a faster finish.

    Very interesting, I never knew that. I always thought you needed to workout your body even until the day before the big day.
    Thanks for the tip!

    Some endurance athletes had told me not to train the entire week before the race or workout very light, is this true or should I keep my normal workout going up to a day or three before ?

      I’m not a professional boiubydlder but i’ve been doing this for 5 weeks as well as cardio 3-4 times a week and I can say it definitely works. When you stop seeing results move up to level 3( which is way harder on your lower abs). Good luck
