#FitFour Gloves Honest Review of The Spartan OCR Slit GRIP vs. LEATHER.


The Official Spartan Race Glove, designed by Fit Four, had given a solution for zero ripped calluses during the Spartan Race and during your obstacle specific training. They provide two similar Spartan gloves, the Spartan OCR Slit Grip and the Spartan OCR Slit Leather. Both will help you to avoid ripped calluses and aid with your grip strength during the race. You may be wondering which one is the better one. If you have the money, you may go ahead to buy both and test it for yourself.

If you want to save some cash by making the right decision, let me help you to decide. I have personally tested both gloves for Spartan Race and also for Spartan obstacle training. Let me remind you, this is based on my personal opinion and experience.

3 Toughest Obstacles from the Spartan Race Sprint, Malaysia. #NewObstacles


The Spartan Race Sprint was held in Semenyih, Selangor. It was about 10km runs and 25 obstacles to conquer. This time, I tried to compete in the age group of age 25 to 29. My goal was to be in the top 10.  I finished 9th place within my age group.  I finish with the duration of 1hr 52 mins. I`m happy with the outcome. There are lots of hills, water obstacles, and trail run through the deep jungle.

I failed two obstacles. The famous Spear Throw also known as the burpee maker and the Monkey Bar 2.0. The Monkey Bar 2.0 is the newly introduced obstacles to Spartan Race. It is first used in Spartan Race Sprint Malaysia. Now that is a total of 60 burpees. I will train harder for the next Spartan Race.

10 Commandments of Spartan Race by #MarvinInspire


Spartan Race is an obstacles race. The Spartan Race is not soft. The Spartan Race is for the gritty. The Spartan Race is for the strong-willed. The Spartan Race is for everyone! I have been running the Spartan Race for six times already. I completed the Spartan Sprint, Spartan Super, and the Spartan Beast. For me, the Spartan Race is a great platform to train your body which has a direct correlation to the mind. Spartan Race will sharpen your mind that any obstacle can be overcome. A stronger body, a stronger mind. All you need to do is just do!

The A-Frame

We heard of a marathon, duathlon, and triathlon. These are the typical endurance sports events. Now, there is an increasingly popular endurance race called The Spartan Race. It is categorized as Obstacle Course Race, in short, OCR. It is an endurance race that challenges your mental, physical limit with multiple environments. It could be at the jungle, hills, mountains, snow, tropical forest, and even in the desert. In between the courses, they are obstacles you need to complete. In every Spartan race, you will expect mud and barbed wire, robes, stones and spears. So do not ever expect to be clean at the finish line of The Spartan Race.
