Spartan Beast Training Plan: Day 2 - HIIT

Spartan Beast Training Plan: Day 2 - HIIT
Presented by Spartan Training®

The Spartan Race Beast is the longest distance in the Spartan Trifecta series, and you'll need use both strength and cardio workouts to conquer it. When covering a longer distance, you will need to push your speed longer, further. Today, in our Spartan Beast Training Plan, we will begin increasing our short-duration speed through this cardio workout.

In this High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) cardio workout, we will work acceleration and deceleration with sprinting. Push yourself through these intervals. Focus on your toughness and your determination. This is where our HIIT starts getting tough, but remember, the Beast will be tougher.
