This is the groundbreaking, done-for-you obstacle training program designed by Kion head coach Ben Greenfield and top Spartan athlete Hunter McIntyre, along with professional OCR athletes Beni Gifford and Brakken Kraker. Read below to get the details on all ten components of this complete obstacle racing and Spartan race training plan!
Are you an already fit athlete or a total newbie who doesn’t need constant feedback and communication from a coach, but does want to plug in intelligent, targeted sessions to your training schedule?
This program, designed by Obstacle Dominator hosts and professional OCR athletes Beni Gifford and Brakken Kraker, is specifically designed to allow any athlete to train for obstacle course racing (OCR) in a very running specific manner (the proven run-based model that the top pros use!). The sport of OCR revolves around the ability to traverse the racecourse as swiftly as possible, and this program prepares you to do just that. The beauty of this program lies in its ability to be used in a modular way. There are four types of training blocks present in this program: Off-Season, Pre-Season, In-Season, and Championship Season.
The Off-Season and Pre-Season blocks are 8-week programs consisting of 2x 4-week microcycles. They can be shortened to one 4 week block of training or can be completed as a full 8-week block, depending on the time available to you in your build-up to your goal races.
The In-Season block is even more modular. While scripted as a 12-week progression, it can be applied in as little as 4 weeks or extended for up to 24 weeks. Again, the amount of preparation time available to you will determine how you apply this block.
The fourth and final piece to this program is the Championship Season block. This is a 5-week training cycle that fine-tunes and sharpens your fitness towards one specific race, location, and distance.
When applying these four blocks of training, you simply need to identify your goal Championship race, then work backward in order to correctly time your transitions from block to block. The entire program can be completed in as few as 18 weeks, while also having the ability to be extended for up to 33 weeks! However, it’s applications are not limited to a linear application. You can return to any previous block of training at any time in order to restart your training. You might have a very important race in June that you prepare for starting in January. Upon completing that race, you can take a week or so of rest and recovery before completing another 4-week block of Pre-Season. From there you build back up towards your next Championship race in October. For each day – delivered in an instantly downloadable .pdf you can view on your computer, phone or e-reader, and print with zero restrictions – you’ll receive a complete plan with clear execution and purpose on each session for every training day.

By getting a glimpse into the mind of the boss of Spartan, you’ll make yourself a smarter, more confident athlete who knows the future of the sport, and what to expect in your next race.
Navigating the world of exercise and performance nutrition can be confusing and frustrating, especially when it comes to eating before your race, fueling your workouts the right way and figuring out how to carry things like fuel and water on the race course without slowing yourself down.
The last thing you want is to be halfway through your obstacle race and completely run out of energy, or worse yet, come down with a bad case of gas, bloating or some other digestive distress.
But Ben Greenfield has put together the perfect plan for you to have everything you need for your obstacle training and racing, from every single meal of the day, to recipes, to fuel prep instructions, to exactly how you should eat for all the different distances of obstacle racing.

It’s a shame to see so many fit people (even the pros!) struggling to or not even making it to the finish line simply because they didn’t know how to hydrate or fuel properly for obstacle racing.
You definitely won’t be one of those people, and you also won’t be one of the people who gets fat (or can’t put on lean muscle) from the wrong nutrition or improper fueling during your training.
