Luis Santana Beats Cancer and Trains Savage

Just before his 16th birthday, Luis Santana was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer in his left leg. His dreams of getting a wrestling scholarship to Ohio State were put on hold as he spent the next seven years wrestling cancer instead.

It came back three times, advancing further and further up his leg each time. At 19 years old he was told that amputation was the only option to save his life. But his doctor didn’t give up and they tried a new form of radiation therapy. At 23, his prayers were answered and he was completely cancer free.

“I fought depression, anger, and spent many months alone not wanting to be close to anyone fearing I could die at any moment,” remembers Luis. “Without my faith in God and my family to support me, I wouldn’t be alive today.”

For many Savages, the most daunting obstacles on our course include Colossus, Wheel World, Sawtooth, Pipe Dreams, and The Great Wall. So what do they all have in common?

Well, aside from having the lowest completion rates of all our obstacles, they each require tremendous upper body strength to conquer.

You may be able to jump straight off the couch and dominate Davy Jones’ Locker, Shriveled Richard, and many other Savage Race obstacles. But when it comes to the big obstacles that require both upper body and grip strength to tackle, training is key.

Here are five pull-up variations (from most to least challenging) that will help you strengthen your upper body and conquer more obstacles the next time you come out to race.

How to Choose the BEST Shoes for Your Mud Run

Post by Carrie

ShoesFEAT

Choosing the best shoe for your next mud run or obstacle course race can make a big difference in how well you perform and how you feel when you cross the finish line.

While it might make sense to wear your oldest pair of tennis shoes, since they’ll end up covered in mud by the time you’re done, you run the risk of wearing shoes that get extremely heavy and cumbersome as the race goes on. You’ll also slip and slide all over the place, and by the time you’re done they’ll likely be falling apart.
