The World's Best Obstacle Race Series!

The World’s Best Obstacle Race Series!

You might be living under a rock if you’ve not heard of the Reebok Spartan Race series! While there have been several “obstacle” style races popping up over the last few years, Spartan Race events are the real deal. They will, without a doubt, challenge you, get you (way!) outside of your comfort zone, kick your ass, and likely have you begging for more!!

Spartan Race encompasses everything I love about pushing my limits and seeing what I’m made of. Yet, here is my grand disclosure… I haven’t actually done one… Yet!

I was beyond thrilled when the fine folks behind the Spartan Race series contacted me a few weeks ago and invited me to get initiated into the club. While I’m a little nervous (and that would be the fear talking), I’m also really excited to finally become a Spartan!

I’m also hoping to check out these recently released sweet kicks especially for Spartans! These Reebok All-Terrain shoes are designed to be lightweight, breathable, and are made to allow water to drain from them! I could do some serious adventuring in these babies!

  1. I’ve done a spartan race before. Running is the easiest part. Definitely need a lot of upper body strength to do well in the race.

    • Awesome! Thanks for the heads-up! I assumed it would require a strong upper body with the climbing and pulling and such. I guess it’s time to start getting serious about strength training!! ; )

  2. Yes, I’ve done the Spartan Beast. Definitely work on your grip strength (pull ups, farmer walks) and work on strong legs (walking lunges, sandbag carries)

  3. I have not done a Spartan yet, but I know that upper body strength is key and something to focus on while training.
