Straight to the point… if you want to get better at Obstacle Racing then Yancy Camp is gonna help you with that! Simple as that!
I just wanted to get that out of the way. I am sure you have searched online for training and workouts specific to obstacle races and sure there is a lot of good stuff out there, but it can be hard to understand some of it and you might get bored of it.
That is why I want to break down why Yancy Camp is so awesome!
Also Yancy just launched the Superheroes program as well. Click here to learn more about the Yancy Superheroes…. Now there are two programs available.
Basically the originally I would say is for more experienced or elite athletes, but to be honest anyone can do them. You would just need to scale down some of the exercises. Heck I still scale down a lot.
The Yancy Campy Superheroes is a more scaled down version and like they say on the site….. “if you can walk and breathe, you can do this program!”
So… What Is Yancy Camp?
Basically it is programmed workouts by Yancy Culp himself that these OCR athletes are doing. This is not just some templated workout that you follow over and over again.
These are strategically created workouts that if you follow are sure to get you results on and off the race course!
The other thing that I love is the support. You can actually get in touch with Yancy if there is something you need to know! That is pretty awesome and he is a super cool dude and loves to help!
What Do You Get?
Before I go into more below let me say this… Yancy is accessible! I had asked him for quick upper body grip workout to help me with the RIG and he whipped together something for me on the fly! Now, this is not something I plan to do, but the fact is I was in a rush and needed somethign short and sweet and he delivered via Facebook messenger! The results of that workout are in this picture here! As Yancy would say… “somebody turned on the Sweat Faucet!” LOL!
OK so here is what you get with Yancy Camp!
- Getting 3 updated workouts a week design by Yancy Culp himself. AS of now there are 335 workouts in the system.
- Access to private Facebook group. Talk about motivation!!
- Challenge testing program! How do you know if you are getting better if you don’t test!
- An awesome video library showing you how to do certain exercises and obstacle help.
- Access to Yancy to get any answers you might need
- Yancy always tosses in a few bonus workouts as well…. if you have anything left in the tank to do them 😉
How I Do The Workouts
I have to be honest… I am signed up under Glenn Racz and the workouts are great, but they are tough and they can be longer. It all depends on the day.
Depending on the workouts I usually have to break them up just for the fact I don’t have the time.
I also try to get at least 1 workout in a week, but I tell ya any Yancy workout I get in really pushes me to the next level. The fact that I know others in the group are pushing to finish the same workout really motivates me.
I mentioned above that these workouts are strategically created and they are. These are not just about putting a whooping on you, they are about creating a well rounded athlete that can attack any obstacle race.
When I am consistent with the workouts I can see huge improvements especially on the uphill climbs! You will learn a lot about lactic threshold training and how to push yourself past that pain point to get stronger and faster!
If you want a PLAN
If you want to be part of a TEAM
If you want SUPPORT & MOTIVATION then Yancy Camp is for you!
