Strength & Speed

"If you want something you never had, you have to be willing to do something you have never done."

Podcast- 2018 Episodes

Strength & Speed podcast is an Obstacle Course Racing (OCR) focused podcast that aims to bring you the best techniques and training tips in OCR.  

What makes us different is the unique approach to taking lessons learned from other sports and applying them to OCR.  Plus, we try to focus on the smaller or lesser known race series to highlight their unique take on OCR. Subscribe to the feed to keep up with the latest episodes.

We will be talking and interviewing athletes, coaches and race directors from inside the OCR industry as well as athletes from other sports.  

Podcast is available here, on iTunes, Stitcher and Podbean.

Podcast production and website upkeep cost time and money.  If you appreciate all the hard work we do take a minute to donate a couple of dollars to keep the information coming.
