Countdown to Savage Race Ignites With 60-Day Training Program

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - Aug 21, 2012) - Savage Race, host of extreme mud and obstacle events in the Central Florida area, is gearing up for its second race of the year. The increasingly popular four to six mile fitness challenge will take place on Oct. 20, 2012 in Dade City, Fla. In preparation for the event, local CrossFit trainers have prepared an intense 60-day training plan. With two months remaining, participants can increase core strength and energy just in time for the big race.

Program Overview:

Sprint Interval Training. This method involves running a designated distance or time at maximum effort followed by a short, lesser intensity recovery period. Sprint interval training helps to improve a runner's form, is one of the best ways to increase overall speed and endurance and will help Savages prepare for the quarter mile residing between each intense obstacle.

Metabolic Resistance and Power Training. This approach consists of all of the fitness "-ings." Lifting, jumping, swinging, pulling, pushing, pressing, slamming and throwing. Perfecting these skills will improve movement patterns with little to no rest -- a necessity for any Savage taking on the Extreme Monkey Bars.

Outdoor Boot Camp Training. Boot camps involve outdoor group fitness classes that focus on overall muscular endurance, agility and cardiovascular capabilities. It forces athletes to coordinate multiple muscle groups and joints, followed by running. The environmental challenges that are presented while outdoors best prepare Savages for the mud and obstacle race, and will prove vital when looking to tackle the Colon Blow or Shriveled Richard Ice Bath.
