There’s no better feeling than completing an obstacle course knowing you’ve given it your best. That means pushing yourself hard on race day and taking your training to the next level in the lead up. To help your body cope with such a demanding training regime, you need to consume a well-rounded wholefood diet, filled with protein, carbs and healthy fats. In addition to a well-rounded diet, supplementation is key to ensuring you maintain peak performance throughout your training and on race day.
Obstacle course racing is one of the most challenging forms of racing available. The unique combination of strength, speed and endurance ensures that athletes need to be proficient in a number of physically demanding attributes. Whilst training these attributes, your body is constantly under stress and subsequently needs the assistance of nutrition and supplementation to stay functioning efficiently.
When, what, and how to supplement are common questions that will all be addressed throughout this page. Drawing from our sponsorship of Spartan Race Australia we’ll ensure you have everything you need to know about supplementation and how it can improve race time.
