When preparing for a Spartan Race Beast, Spartans must prepare for every situation. They must be able to generate power to climb over walls, pull themselves along the Tyrolean traverse, or are pushing themselves off the ground in a burpee. No matter if its mile 1 or mile 13, all Spartans must keep their power consistent.
Last week, we worked on developing explosiveness in our power. For this week, we are developing power endurance. Our sets and repetitions will be increasing. Challenge yourself to keep the same explosiveness that we built last week.
