Obstacle Dominator

Brakken and Beni spend this episode chatting with Beni and Brakken about things that Brakken and Beni think about things. 

-A rant from Brakken about people (mostly the pros) beginning and ending each race with a safe padding of social media proclaimed excuses...

-Beni's struggle with caring TOO much about what other people think, yet learning that there can be a healthy level of that...

-A conspiracy theory (and a suprisingly realistic possibility) surrounding the Ryan Woods Truss-Gate event, spurred by reviewing the recent John Penland fire jump debaucle...

-A preview of the sexy (lit, sick, totally rad) NEW OBSTACLE DOMINATOR TRAINING GUIDE to be released very soon...

...and much more!

Speaking of people who have beat Beni, the 6'2 195 lb beast from South Africa Thomas Van Tonder chats with the OD duo today. They cover:

-How he is one of the only 3 Redbull Sponsored OCR Athletes in the world...

-How, contrary to popular belief, he does not regularly train with lions and giraffes...

-The argument that even the most obstacle dense OCR (OCRWC 3K 2019) was still geared towards the fastest runner...

-His personal record of nonstop 300m+ monkeybar traverse, and why the racing scene in South Africa is so awesome...

...and much more!
