Previously featured in our Workout of the Month series, “Do a little background research on OCR training and three key factors seem to stand out: running, obstacles and strength. Luckily, one of my favourite workouts incorporates all key factors. The ‘Primal Triathlon’ basically involves trail running, parkour and lifting in one session, set in a natural environment. I like the workout because it’s tough, natural and in nature, and an immersive experience!”
- Trail run – 5km
- Obstacle circuit – 30 mins. The focus here should be on continuous free moving and interacting with nature. Elements can include crawling, balancing, climbing or jumping natural obstacles.
- Primal lifting & carrying – 30 mins. Elements can include rock rolling, heavy shouldered lunges, push presses, cleans, deadlifts, rock waist carries, or log shoulder carries.
Obstacle Racers NZ Advent Calendar!
Each day in December, leading up to Christmas, we’ll reveal a daily challenge to get in mud shape. This advent calendar doesn’t involve chocolate (you can click here for some great chocolate recipes), but it does involve mud. We present the 2017 ORNZ Advent Calendar: 24 Days to Obstacle Racing.
