Obstacle Dominator

In this episode, Ben and Hunter bring on the legendary obstacle racing champion Hobie Call to talk training, nutrition and more.

We also field questions from listeners, including: Solo asks: How to train for the Fuego Y Agua Survival Run (80k+ Obstacle/Adventure/Ultramarathon Race), including climbing, swimming/diving, jungle rivers & lakes, carrying all sorts of things, digging, running brutal terrain, throwing, memorizing, and surviving in this epic event. Jayna asks: How can you recover as fast as possible after a Beast... Anonymous asks: What's the most inconvenient truth that is going to make you an amazing athlete but that not everybody wants to hear (e.g. if you want to get faster/better with hard work vs. simple solutions, what kind of hard work is going to give you the most bang for your buck)
