Sawtooth Training Tips by Chris Marhefka (B3 Gym)

Post by Sam Abbitt
Tags: , ,

Last week I dropped into B3 Gym in Gainesville, Florida to meet with owner and head trainer Chris Marhefka to get some training tips for completing my personal arch-nemesis obstacle, Sawtooth.

In the video, Chris shows me how I can use pull ups, dead hangs, one handed hangs, fat grip progressions, and other training techniques to conquer Sawtooth and other upper body strength oriented obstacles.

Oh! And I should mention that I hit a dead hang PR in this video (1:21). Haha!

Chris Marhefka is the founder of B3 Gym in Gainesville, FL and co-founder of Eat the 80, a healthy meal delivery service in Florida. He has worked with more than 2,000 clients and has 10+ years experience as a personal trainer, CrossFit instructor, and nutrition and lifestyle coach. He holds a Certified Personal Trainer certification from the American College of Sports Medicine and is a CrossFit L1 and L2 certificate holder.

I Will Conquer Sawtooth in 2019.

One of my deepest secrets is that I can’t complete Sawtooth. That’s right, the founder of Savage Race can’t complete one of his own trademark obstacles. I’ve had eight years to do it, and every time I try, I end up falling in the drink.

A few months ago, I decided that 2019 would be the year that this would change. I know that conquering Sawtooth will require hard work and dedication. The two biggest factors keeping me from successfully completing Sawtooth are 1) I am overweight, and 2) my upper body is not strong enough. Both of these issues will need to be addressed to enable me to accomplish my goal of defeating Sawtooth.

Being overweight makes obstacle course racing a lot harder. The way I think about it is that for every extra 10 pounds of fat on my body, I might as well be wearing a weighted backpack filled with 10 pound plates. To address this issue, I’ve been eating clean for the past few months. I follow a Paleo-ish diet, and I’ve experimented with intermittent fasting and ketosis too. I’ve found that if I limit my carbs to 50-100 grams per day, I can steadily lose weight, and it really doesn’t require a lot of effort or will power. Another tactic that works well for me is to challenge my friends to weight loss and fitness challenges. Savage Co-founder Lloyd Parker and I both lost about 30 pounds in three months participating in one of these challenges. So I’m down 30 pounds, and have about 15 to go. I think I’m on track in the weight loss department.

To address the strength issue, I’ve been hitting the gym to get stronger. I have a great garage gym at my house that makes it easy for me to get the work in. Even more important, is good programming, so I hired a remote coach, Sean McGovern to create an individualized training plan for me and to hold me accountable. Following Sean’s plan, which is specifically tailored to help me reach my goals, I’ve been breaking PRs in the gym that I haven’t come close to in eight years. So I think that I’m on track in the strength department, too. If you think that having a remote coach could be a good fit for you, I highly recommend you contact Sean.

New Savage Bling for 2019!

Post by Sam Abbitt
Tags:

Ahhh yeah… A new year = a new set of medals. In this video, I show off all the new goods.

My favorite is the HUGE new Savage Syndicate medal, featuring spinning action and a lovely mirror finish. As usual, you will get a lap pin for every paid lap you ran to earn your Syndicate honors. This year we made separate Savage Race and Savage Blitz pins, to distinguish which type of laps you ran. These pins are larger and nicer than any we’ve had in the past, and will replace the state pins that we have given out in the past. To learn how to earn the Savage Syndicate medal, follow this link.

For those of you SavagePRO and BlitzPRO athletes out there, you gotta check out the new PRO award medals. These are what you will earn if you win age group or top team honors. Instead of the standard round medal design we’ve given out in prior years, the latest PRO award medals are Savage Axe replicas, complete with a custom SavagePRO/BlitzPRO lanyard.

Of course, we also have some great new medals for the standard Savage Race and Savage Blitz finishers!

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m completely fired up for the 2019 season. I’ve been training hard to have my best year of health and performance, so you can bet that I’ll be earning my medals this year right along with you.

Much Savage love,

Sam Abbitt

How We’re Always Striving to Improve Savage Race Based on YOUR Feedback

Hey Savages! Today we’d like to give you an inside look at how we’re committed to continually improving your experience at Savage Race.

You already know we have the best obstacles, and that our race is the perfect distance. But did you know that we have an internal focus on always making Savage Race better?

We work hard to connect with you, our growing Savage community, and then put on an amazing event that you just can’t stop talking about. Then, we review a number of metrics to measure the success of each event. We consider what worked well and what we could do better next time. After that we make adjustments (sometimes big ones!) and repeat the process.

The end result is a better Savage experience each time you come out to one of our events, and we’re darned proud of that.

Luis Santana Beats Cancer and Trains Savage

Post by Alex Brown
Tags: ,

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.”
