Embracing this format of training is a real challenge due to its speed, load ratio, movements, stability, execution and overall rhythm.

Points to rememember:
1, Every competitor is going to be monitored by an event marshal in terms of repetition count, exercise form, full range of motion and time, correctness of execution!
2, Competitors can’t argue on the marshal count.
3, Every competitor is allowed to take break after each stage for 2 min. A longer break will disqualify
Food intake and hydration before competition:
A very important thing to remember is that you have to be well rested, hydrated and have adequate amount of glycogen stored in your muscles and liver. You will be going through a high intensity training format which will challenge you to the core!
1. To avoid any complications, discomfort and possible dangers don't fuel your body shortly before competition. You will need to have at least 2 meals containing between 65 to 75 % of carbohydrates metabolised at least 2-3 hours before the event.
2. Allow at least 10 to 15 minutes for proper warmup before entering the pit.
3. Keep hydrated with water at all times. Try not drink too much on one go.
4. Breathing is a key! Breathe properly! You will be briefed on correct breathing techniques before entering the pit.
5. ABSOLUTELY NO enhancers!!! No pre-workout mixes, boosters, artificial or natural.
Remember…being a true Spartan is not by the birth right....but by the fight you put on!
Good luck to you all!!
THIS IS A PERSONAL CHALLENGE…NOT A COMPETITION OR A RACE…THIS COURSE IS DESIGNED TO PUSH YOU TO YOUR LIMITS
