Obstacle course race season is in full swing. Last month’s workout used various tools to get OCR newbies and vets in top shape for race day, so in this month’s workout, we narrow things down quite a bit and rely solely on the TRX to build power, strength, and muscular endurance. Utilized by athletes and the military, the TRX is a versatile and portable apparatus that allows you to incorporate lower, upper, and core muscles for total body workouts that yield results in strength, balance, coordination, and flexibility. Make this workout part of your regular training routine to excel in your next OCR event.
