Adventure Race Training Guide

So you want to do an adventure race? Here's how to prepare.

“Here’s something random, climb over it.”
Best way to train: old school pull-ups, just like high school gym class. These will be included in your resistance workouts—done twice per week—3 sets of 10-12 reps. Upper body pull development will be helpful for many of the obstacles you’ll face. As a strategy note, any time you’re climbing over stuff, try to get your legs involved. Good climbers make it easy on themselves.
