  • What To Wear To Obstacle Race Training

    1. 1. Gear ThermomeTer www.RagnarokTraining.com
    2. 2. Over 80° Required Equipment: •Compression Underwear / Sports Bra •Short Socks •Sneakers •Fingerless Gloves •Race HeadBand • Couple extreme heat with an Extreme Workout, and the clothes will literally melt right off you. So, why waste a perfectly good outfit? Wear your Birthday-Suit, and roll around in some mud. • But, do wear Gloves and Sneakers: you wouldn’t want to scrape those piggies.
    3. 3. 80° - 60° Required Equipment: •Compression Underwear / Sports Bra •Short Socks •Shorts •Short-Sleeve Shirt •Sneakers •Fingerless Gloves •Race HeadBand • Could there be anything more perfect than Training in these Temperatures? Well, if your idea of Training doesn’t contain 65-lb Sandbags and 128-lb Ragnarok French Fries, then I’d say…Yes, there is. • Make sure all clothing is Polyester and Dry-Fit. Cotton just absorbs water and becomes heavy.
    4. 4. 60° - 40° Required Equipment: •Compression Underwear / Sports Bra •Short Socks •Shorts •Tights •Short-Sleeve Shirt •Long-Sleeve Shirt •Sneakers •Fingerless Gloves •Race HeadBand • If you aren’t sweating at these Temperatures, then you aren’t Training with Ragnarok. • Depending on the sun, wind, and how wet you are, during these Temperatures you may find yourself switching back and forth between Long and Short Sleeves.
    5. 5. 40° - 20° Required Equipment: •Compression Underwear / Sports Bra •Long Socks •Tights •Fleece Pants •Long-Sleeve Shirt •Hood •Sweatshirt •Sneakers •Insulated Gloves •Face Mask •Race HeadBand • There are those among you who will stop reading now because fear prevents you from Training at these Temperatures. And there are those among you who silently continue reading and think “Now this is Perfect Training Weather.” • It can get cold fast during these Temperatures. You are going to need to cover your head and face, and switch to Insulated Gloves.
    6. 6. 20° - 0° Required Equipment: •Compression Underwear / Sports Bra •Long Socks x2 •Tights x2 •Fleece Pants •Hood x 2 •Sweatshirt x2 •Sneakers •Insulated Gloves •Glove Liners •Face Mask •Hat •Race HeadBand •Hot Pack(s) • While the rest of the world is cuddled up in their Snuggies and sipping hot chocolate, the fiery heat emanating from your muscles is bringing about a Spring Thaw in January. • Make sure every inch of your body has 3-4 Layers on it. Also, a Hot Pack can mean the difference between surviving and Thriving.
    7. 7. Below 0° Required Equipment: •Compression Underwear / Sports Bra •Long Socks x2 •Tights x2 •Thermal suit •Hood x 2 •Insulated Boots •Insulated Gloves •Glove Liners •Face Mask •Hat •Race HeadBand •Hot Pack(s) • If you are still Training when your Thermometer flies south for the winter, you are truly Ready for Ragnarok. • Sacrifice some movement to stay alive: invest in a Thermal Suit if you are going out at Sub-Zero Temperatures.
