How to Boost Your Whole Body Strength and Endurance to Finish an Obstacle Course Run in 12 Weeks

Obstacle races involve a variety of activities in each race which present complex physical challenges that are super fun but at the same time require adequate preparation to achieve their full benefit.

You don’t need to be a veteran athlete, but prior preparation and training will largely determine your overall performance in the races.

You need to have stretchable endurance so that you can breathe during the race and have as much fun as possible.

To enjoy the entire event and not just survive it you need to on a few areas such as endurance and strength.

Strength training

During the race, you will encounter obstacles that require massive strength, such as pushing logs and rocks and jumping through walls.

It is, therefore, important to work on both your upper and lower body strength since the lack of adequate strength will cause a challenge to pass even the simplest of the obstacles.

The best way to boost your whole body strength is by doing body weight exercises like push-ups, burpees, pull ups, squats and triceps dips. These exercises will boost your core strength and help to improve your balance.

Kettlebell exercises help to improve your grip so that you can tackle rope climbing and monkey bars obstacles during the race. The goal is to assist you manage your body weight and be as light as possible yet powerful.

Apart from running, you should also practice pull-ups on a regular basis to improve your upper body strength.

Pull ups are essential for obstacles like rope climbing and other challenges that require a lot of strength to push against gravity.

You can also incorporate squats and lunges to help improve lower body strength for running and also improve your stability levels.

Endurance training

You can boost endurance by doing a lot of low-intensity races over a stretched period. To handle the intense obstacles you will need to train your body before you handle similar challenges.

I would recommend having a long run each week until you are comfortable to run longer distances. If you can finish longer distances easily then, the shorter distances won’t be such a struggle, and you will emerge on the top.

The more you adapt to complex intensive workouts the more you’ll be competitive on the main.

Running

Sprints and running in general boosts cardiovascular fitness. Moreover, in most races you will run about 5 to 20km therefore running should be a critical part of your training.

Combining sprints with strength training will go a long way to increasing your stamina and whole body strength. Sprints will also help you to recover faster between different obstacles and help increase your speed.

High-intensity sprints and climbing hills 2-3 days each week in the course of the training will equip you with endurance to complete the majority of the obstacles.

Training for an obstacle race is a fun way to get in shape and prepare for the challenges ahead.

Whether you are searching for a stress outlet or a fitness boost, you are sure to benefit from the feeling of accomplishment that comes with achieving a new and unique goal.

Have the right mindset

You probably have heard the much emphasis on the importance of having the right mindset if you want to achieve any goal, and I conquer with it.

Our thoughts affect our actions and can either make us win or lose because there is a relationship between our mind, thoughts, and actions.

Tactics like visualization, meditation and self-talk can boost your mental capacity to handle challenges.

Be careful about what you tell yourself. If you believe an obstacle is very hard and beyond your ability, then you will fail.

On the other hand, if you motivate yourself that you have all it takes to hack any challenge then success in the course is eminent.

Be positive

Don’t allow challenges to bring your motivation down. Failure should not make you feel bad about yourself. The obstacles could be tough, but you’ll feel so much better about yourself if you complete the course. After all, the race being tough is the essence of the thrill.

Knowing how you’ve been challenged and stretched yourself, faced your fears is what makes it even greater. You had a rough time, but you’ve done it!

Work with a team

Don’t go to the battle alone! Register with your colleagues at work or your friends or family members.

Team members will not only boost your morale and hold your hand when you fall but also, faster members can go ahead and win, and it will be counted to the time of your team. If you don’t have willing friends, you can always make new friends during the course.
