The 5 Benefits of Strength Training for everyone!

Strength training is great for everyone! Strength training is based on the principle that muscles need to work to overcome resistance. When you do it repeatedly, your muscles will work hard and grow. After a period of time, it becomes stronger. Putting it in a simple term, it is the activities we do every day. From walking, carrying our books, lifting boxes from the ground, pulling out our drawer and pushing it back in and from standing up and sitting down from a chair. The only thing we need to do is more repetition and add loads while doing the activity.

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.
