If you are not using kettlebells as part of your obstacle race training program you are missing out! Strength training for an obstacle course race should not be confined to power lifting or circuit training alone. Joe from Race Day Domination takes us through a workout.
Even if you are not a “runner” you will still need to include run workouts into your obstacle race training program. However, depending on the length of your race, you might not need to log 10 mile runs or pound out 90 minutes on the trail to improve your stamina, endurance, or calorie burn.
