Did The Spartan Race – That Weight Loss Guy

Did The Spartan Race

Did The Spartan Race

I did the Spartan Race in Montreal on the weekend and man what a race! It’s advertised as 12 km of race and obstacles but what it ended up being was 15 km through pure mud trails. It took me 3 hours and 55 minutes to finish the course. The winner did in 1 hour and 27 minutes but I still have no clue how that guy went through it that fast. It was about 20 obstacles ranging from cargo net climbs, to monkey bars to swimming to carry various heavy objects to crawling through waist deep mud then through 3 foot diameter pipes. Then there were about 3 or 4 walls you had to climb over. It was the most physically gruelling thing I have done in my life.

I was exhausted. I’m still a bit sore and it’s now Wednesday. But I’m going to go do my chest and tricep workout this afternoon so I’ll post that here with this update.

Here’s what I did:

Thursday June 27, 2013


  • Tri-set bent over one arm cable, standing one arm cable, forward one arm cable
  • Rope pulls through the legs forward
  • Should presses


  • Leg Press, (1,003 lbs)
  • Leg extensions
  • Leg curls
  • Tri-set for calves on leg press machine


  • Behind the back olympic bar curls


  • 3 x 25 straight bar rotations
  • 3 x 25 one side crunches on mat, (both sides got 3 x 25)
  • 3 x 25 straight leg raises on mat

Then I rested on Friday & Saturday.

Today was race day! Here’s a link to what I did: Montreal Spartan Race. Check out that link and you’ll get an idea of what it is. I would honestly do it again though. It was fun and a HUGE challenge. Well worth the trip out of town for it. (We had to drive about 8 hours to get to the mountain where the race was held). I think I lost about 8 lbs on the race!
