If you’ve reached a point in your fitness journey where you’ve built up a consistent workout routine, that’s great! Now that you’ve gotten into a regular rhythm with working out, you might be looking for new ways to challenge yourself and continue making fitness gains.
Obstacle course racing (OCR) could be just the challenge you’re looking for. Here are a few ways that OCR training can take your workouts to a new level:
1. New Movements
With OCR training, you’ll get introduced to a variety of new movements and exercises. As you move and train your body in different ways, you’ll start seeing results that you may not have even expected. And the more you learn in the gym, the more opportunities you’ll have to continue making progress.
2. New Goals
OCR training also gives you the chance to set new fitness or performance goals. Although you might’ve never considered something like obstacle course racing in the past, signing up for your first OCR event could be an exciting and motivating goal to chase. And as you gain more experience in the sport, you’ll be able to set new goals to build on your previous race performances.
3. New Challenges
One of the best things about the sport of obstacle course racing is that you literally learn how to overcome challenging obstacles. And the most effective way to take your workouts to the next level might be to take on something that challenges you not only physically but also mentally. The more you overcome challenges in your OCR training (and racing), the more confidence you’ll build in yourself and your abilities.
