Virtual Spartan Race 2020 Workout

With a lot of races & events being cancelled, or forced to go virtual, Spartan Race sent out an email for a Virtual Spartan Race

A normal Spartan Race is a distance run (distance depends of the level you sign up for), with a bunch of obstacles mixed in during your run.

I love them because of the mixture of needing speed, endurance, strength, and power.

So, a virtual Spartan Race sounded interesting. Instead of obstacles, it was 20+ Bodyweight exercises.

*Start from the Spartan Race website:

THE SPARTAN VIRTUAL SPRINT CONSISTS OF A 5K RUN OR EQUIVALENT, AND THE FOLLOWING 20 OBSTACLES:

  • 10 push-ups
  • 10 burpees
  • 10 mountain climbers (per side)
  • 10 jumping jacks
  • 10 air squats
  • 10 forward lunges (per side)
  • 10 hand-release push-ups
  • 10 tuck jumps
  • 10 plank up-downs
  • 10 plank shoulder taps (per side)
  • 10 knee slap mountain climbers (per side)
  • 10 backward lunges (per side)
  • 10 glute bridge raises
  • 10 dips
  • 10 decline push-ups
  • 10 single-leg squats (per side)
  • 10 double leg calf raises
  • 10-second plank
  • 10-second 6-inch leg hold
  • 10-second iso-squat

It ended up being a solid workout. Definitely worth trying, if you can.

If running isn’t really an option for you right now, you can try out a few different substitutes:

If you have access to a piece of cardio equipment (rower, elliptical, bike, etc) go for the same 5K distance.

If you have a Jumprope, aim for 1000 single jumps

If Bodyweight exercises in place is what you can do, aim for 200 jumping jacks in place of the run.

Kettlebell Training Benefits – Full Body Workout

Kettlebells are a great tool to have for your workouts. Especially now with a lot of people not in the gym.

Kettlebells can provide a perfect combo of Strength, Conditioning, & Balance.

They are perfect for a home workout. Since you only really need one.

KBs improve core and stability. Helps with mobility, and range of motion. And helps with muscle imbalances (versus a barbell, where your “stronger” side can take over).

Now that I sold you on getting a kettlebell or using one that you have access too, what exercises should you do??

Seriously, they can work the WHOLE body. You can use it in a bodybuilding style workout or a more cross training style workout. Or both.

Here’s a quick video demo, taking you through a handful of strength exercises. Working through the full body.

A couple tips:

Make sure to not go too light. You want to feel like you’re working out and challenging your body.

But, also, don’t go too heavy. Doing single kettlebell movements with a weight too heavy can lead to a quick injury.

Here’s a couple other Kettlebell Workouts to try out.
