I’m baaack! After a brief pause in my podcast I am back with an all new name. The show is not the OCR Underground Show, but we are still providing you great Spartan Race Training tips, plus other OCR strategies. My apologize for the delay but we are back and better than ever. Technically this is show 1 of the OCR Underground, but for an easy transition I am just going to keep the episode number going. In this episode, the always energetic and motivating Coach Josh Graves, with Fitness On Fire, is on to give a Spartan Race Recap of the San Jose Super and Sprint from a few weeks ago. I talk about the importance of grip strength and how it relates to your shoulder function. Obviously, you already know how important grip strength is for your training, but did you know how it effects your rotator cuff strength and how your rotator cuff effects your grip? Some pretty cool research that helps give you some insight on to the best way to improve your grip. And in our Coaches’s Corner, I have SGX Coach and RD Anne L’Heureux on to take a deep dive into a few hot nutrition topics. Coach L’Heureux and I have a great conversation on our thoughts on topics such as carbs vs. fats for fueling, prioritizing and progressing your nutrition plan, how the body adapts to what foods you put in it, metabolic testing, and how your nutrition plan should vary based on your training and lifestyle you are living. Coach Anne helps clear up some of the confusion with nutrition and gives some awesome tips to evaluate yourself in order to set up your nutrition plan for better results. All this plus much more in this weeks episode. Full Show Notes: www.ocrunderground.com/episode-30
