What is HYROX & Can I Compete?

What is HYROX & Can I Compete?

 

HYROX is "The Fitness Competition for EVERY BODY". 

I first learned of HYROX about a year ago, February 2020. It was a new concept to me. Different from obstacle course races, more exercises involved than triathlons, and it also doesn't require olympic weightlifting events like some other fitness competitions do, it is 8 exercises mixed in with 1km runs. 

This was intriguing to me for sure! The last part of their tag line really spoke to me as well: "EVERY BODY". The HYROX team wants people to know that truly anyone can compete. You don't have to be shredded and able to lift hundreds of pounds over head or be a marathon runner. If you workout regularly and incorporate the exercises into your routine, you will be able to compete and finish this race!

I am not going to lie, it will be hard, but it will be amazing and fun!!

Here is the competition:

Start: 1km run, then 1 km run in between each of the 8 exercises

  1. 1000m SkiErg 
  2. 50m Sled Push
  3. 50m Sled Pull
  4. 80m Burpee Broad Jump
  5. 1000m Rowing
  6. 200m Farmers Carry
  7. 7 100m Sandbag Lunges
  8. 75 or 100 Wall Balls

By the finish of this race you will have run 8 km total and completed each of the 8 exercises. What an exciting (and very different) competition! No matter where in the world you compete, the race is always the same so you are truly competing directly with everyone!

MyConatinerGym really believes in what this competition is about. So we decided to partner with them and are the official sponsor of HYROX and will be at the following events so you can come see us in person! Even if you are not competing stop by and check out our awesome new gyms and order one for yourself or your business. Event only discounts will be available so don't miss out!

  • Dallas, TX  April 10th
  • Orlando, FL June 5th
  • Chicago, IL June 26th

Be Ready for Your Next Outdoor Adventure: Mountain Biking!

Be Ready for Your Next Outdoor Adventure: Mountain Biking!

Spring is approaching soon and now is a great time to start preparing for spring activities! Mountain biking actually terrifies me, lol! I rock climb, kayak, snowboard, hike, love to ride road bikes and I even box. For whatever reason, going down a bumpy hill scares me. That doesn’t mean that I can’t help you get ready for your own mountain bike adventure though. Having competed in road racing, you do need a lot of the same strengths and I asked a few people that mountain bike on the regular to make sure I am covering everything!

To begin with, you need so much more than leg strength. As with all activities, core is key. Maybe I should start putting, core is king! If you have a strong back, obliques and abdominals you will last a lot longer on those hills. In addition, you will also need a strong chest and strong rear deltoids. If you can keep your shoulders down and back and let your chest and lats support you, as you lean on the handle bars, your ride will be so much more comfortable and your upper body won’t fatigue as soon. You will feel more like your handle bars are more there just for stearing and balance, not to just rest/lean on to keep your body upright.

When it does come to legs, many people overlook the power you can generate by focusing on using your glutes and hamstrings when you pedal. A lot of people tend to push with their toes and then your quads and knees get worn out. You can actually make those a secondary use!

So what are some of my favorite exercises for cycling? We will work on strength, balance and power.

Super sets are a great way to work on your strength and endurance.

After warmup try out the following exercise routing.

Start with 10 reps of each of the following and work your way to 20reps as your strength increases. 2-4 sets:

Superset:

  • Push-up with hands in TRX handles. Getting your body as close to parallel to the floor as possible.
  • Jump lungesStiff leg deadlift

Superset:

  • Jackknife with feet in TRX handle
  • Dumbbell Stiff-leg deadlift

Superset:

  • Plank on stability ball, pushing the ball out and in with elbows on ball
  • Overhead squat. Start with dumbbells or light barbell and work your way up to full olympic barbell

Superset:

  • Rear delt cable fly
  • Box jumps

Superset:

  • Plank with dumbbell row
  • Banded barbell hip thrust. Band just above your knees, on your last rep hold up at full extension and move knees in/out to work those outer hips

Make sure to do plenty of stretching! There are a lot more exercises to incorporate, but this routine hits all the basics of balance, strength, explosive power and endurance!

3 weeks to spring - so get after it and Be Ready for Your Outdoor Mountain Biking Adventure!
