You don’t need to have a race scheduled 28 days from now to benefit from this program. If you don’t have a race, this part in four-week exercise cycle is a time to rest and recover for another four weeks of training.

How the Spartan Stadium Race Training Plan Works

Week 1 will be focused on laying down the foundation for our exercises. In week 2, we will build greater strength with an increase of weight, but also with a decrease in sets and reps. For week 3, we use the same weight, but increase our sets and repetitions to build strength endurance. Week 4 is our targeted race week. During race week, we enter into our tapering or active rest. This allows our body to preserve energy and to adjust to the previous 3 weeks of training.
