In this episode of the obstacle order Philip and Elijah recap their experience at the Sacramento Spartan Race Weekend. Philip did the super and sprint and Elijah did just the Super. This race served as a season ender for Philip and will be Elijah’s penultimate race.
For many people this is the first race since the Spartan World Championships. Listen to find out how this race was a little different experience than the others this season.
If you did not participate in the Sac Spartan you will get a very thorough explanation of the terrain. Also, Joe De Sena makes an appearance.
In this Episode Philip and Elijah catch up after a long hiatus. This episode begs the question: “if there is never a central topic can there really be a tangent?”
While this episode primarily serves to get you caught up on the life and times of Elijah and Phil, there are still some gold nuggets of actionable information dispersed throughout the show. Some of the topics covered include:
The effect of fasting on Heart Rate
High Fat training
Finishing the OCR season and prepping for the “off season”
In this episode Elijah sits down with Ryan Kempson of Advanced Movement Athletics. Ryan is an outside the box thinker who likes to take a holistic approach to Obstacle Course training. This podcast covers the fundamentals of Ryan’s coaching and training philosophy.
Ryan explains how conditioning is not just about aerobic fitness, but it’s also about learning and practicing foundational movement patterns that teach you how to become a better athlete. In doing so, you will acquire great obstacle immunity. This will shift your perspective on how you see obstacles from something that is impeding you, to something that you can gain an advantage on the field during.
Ryan also talks about the Burdenko method and how that course shifted his perspective on both training and recovery. Ryan will be teaching all of these strategies and more in an upcoming clinic at the Savage Barn November 5th.
