This is Sparta: How to Survive the World's Most Brutal Race

Press Release

Even the most seasoned triathlete will falter in an obstacle course as brutal as the Spartan Race without ample preparation.

Across rugged terrain stretching three to over 13 miles, the Spartan Race sends contenders plowing through a series of 20 to 30 grueling challenges including mud, fire, and barbed wire to push mind and body past the limit. For every hardened Spartan, the race is no mere event; it is a way of life.

“Spartan Race is 50 percent physical and 50 percent mental — physical training is going to get you there, but it’s designed to test you mentally,” shared Michael Reyes, Director of Spartan Race Philippines. “So keep an open mind, push yourself hard and know that we are not creating something impossible. We’re doing something that anyone can do. It will be hard but know that you can do it,” he added.

Discipline on top of determination will be essential to reach the finish line in one piece. With the first-ever Reebok Spartan Race in the Philippines happening this September 16 at the Timberland grounds in San Mateo, Rizal, here are a few expert tips for Filipino Spartan hopefuls who want to conquer one of the most formidable obstacle courses on the planet.

Be ready for anything

Personal trainer Kristin Rooke of BuiltLean warns Spartan Race newbies to get ready for anything since race coordinators don’t release the course map until the event itself. With every race a surprise, would-be participants must build endurance, speed, as well as upper and lower body strength so they can prepare for any obstacle.

Fitness First Philippines, the official fitness partner of Spartan Race Philippines, offers a 45-minute Spartan SGX program to help Filipino hopefuls overcome the race. Headed by elite SGX coaches, each session trains participants in a range of movements — from sprints and squats to lifts and lunges—to prepare against any imaginable hurdle while improving physical performance.

Burpees, burpees, burpees

Surviving each obstacle is one thing; surviving the penalties for failure is another. Obstacle racing documentary Rise of the Sufferfests director Scott Keneally recounts the pain of having to do 30 burpees for every failed challenge, which made him quit the race midway.

Rooke reiterates the importance of the burpee and urges Spartan Race contenders to include this much-maligned workout in training routines, in case they fail or skip an obstacle.

Eating right

Proper diet is fundamental to overcoming the Spartan Race. Eating like a Spartan is an entire philosophy that prescribes pH-balanced, primarily plant-based meals with whole ingredients that consider seasonality, availability, sustainability, and affordability, along with nutrient density, taste, and impact on the environment.

To succeed in an obstacle race where upper-body strength is crucial, Torey Armul of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics also recommends plenty of carbohydrates that can fuel large muscle groups. Similarly, dietician Natalie Rizzo suggests extra protein during strength training, as well as chicken or chocolate milk after workouts to beef up the upper body.

Inspiration for Filipino Spartans

Rigorous training and proper diet are only part of the equation to a successful Spartan Race. For the resolve to take on and complete the arduous run, inspiration is critical.

American sports competition series Spartan: Ultimate Team Challenge delivers motivation with Spartan Race-inspired obstacles that only the strongest, fastest, and most united teams can surpass for the grand prize of $250,000. Catch the premiere of Season 2 on September 2, Saturday at 9:35 PM, first and exclusive on RTL CBS Extreme.

5 Surprising Ways to Prevent Colds and Flu

by: Jeric Danao

One of the worst things that could happen while working or going to school is getting sick. Getting sick would mean missing important tasks due to not being able to go to work or school. Being sick also means that you have to spend your valuable money on treatments, like getting medicine for cough and cold, or even going to the hospital.

Being sick takes away valuable time and money, which means getting healthy to prevent these illnesses from happening is important. There are many ways to prevent ailments like cold and flu, like taking medicine and having a balanced diet. But there are also uncommon and unexpected methods that you can use, and here are some of them.

1.Get more Protein

Protein is one of the most important nutrients you can get from your food. Having more protein in your body strengthens your immune system. This means that having your daily protein fix would make sure that you have less chances of getting sick. Protein-rich foods include eggs, fish, dairy products, and red meat.

2. Drink some Tea

Sometimes, the best way to relax and relieve your body is by drinking a hot cup of tea. There are many different kinds of tea you can choose from, but the ones that can help you prevent colds and flu is black, green, lemon, and honey tea. Drinking tea helps stimulate the nose, and helps with your breathing, while thinning out your mucus.

3. Juice up

Other than getting a hot cup of tea, another healthy way is by drinking fresh fruit juices. Juices, especially from fruits that contain citrus, are great sources of vitamin C. Vitamin C helps your body’s immune system, which prevents your body from getting unwanted illnesses. There is a vast selection of juices to choose from, these include oranges, lemons, kale, apple, broccoli, cucumber, carrot, coconut, and much more.

4. Wash up (your hands)

Sometimes, the simplest way to prevent illness is one of the best ways. Routinely washing your hands prevents you from contracting any disease causing germs from the very beginning. Washing your hands with anti-bacteria soap makes sure that you are clean and safe from contracting anything unwanted.

5. Get some Sun

Going out and getting some sun rays are not only a great way to get warmth and breathe fresh air, but can also prevent you from getting colds and flu. Getting some sunlight means getting some vitamin D, which helps in skin health and makes your immune system stronger. The best time to get some sun is during the very early hours of the morning, from 5-9am.

Key Takeaway

Getting sick is difficult, and robs you of important time where you can be productive and active. By doing these things listed above, you can be guaranteed that you are protected from illnesses like colds and flu. While medicine and going to a trusted health facility is the best way to treat illnesses, it won’t hurt to do a little self-care that would keep you away from the doctor.

5 Productive Places to Work in Aside from Your Office

by: Jeric Danao

During a long day in the office, there are times that you may become tired and unproductive, which may result to you not finishing some important work. There are also times that you may need a change of scenery, and work away from the office. There are many places that you can work outside of the office, like coffee shops and coworking spaces. For more suggestions on where to work outside of the office, here is a list of places to choose from.

1. Libraries

If you want some peace and quiet, very few places can offer what a library has. The calm and quiet atmosphere is great for productivity, and helps your mind concentrate which can make you work efficiently. It also helps that most libraries have Wi-Fi. Other than being a great place to work in, the library also gives you access to books and magazines that you can read after finishing work, which make your creativity work.

2. Coworking Spaces

Shared office spaces are becoming more abundant recently, and are also becoming one of the most popular places to work in. Coworking spaces offer amenities that regular offices offer, such as Wi-Fi, conference rooms, bathrooms, kitchens and pantries, and equipment like printers and photocopy machines. Coworking spaces also surround you with people who are also working, which can also help motivate and inspire you.

3. Coffee Shop

One of the most popular places in which people work outside their office, coffee shops offer the comfort, along with some delicious pastries and quality coffee. Coffee shops offer some cozy seating, air conditioning, Wi-Fi, an inviting ambience, and drinks that can pump up your creative juices. Coffee shops are quite abundant as well, so there is no shortage of places where you can get good coffee and a comfortable environment.

4. Bars and Pubs

Although it may not be one of the first places that comes to mind when it comes to looking for places where you can work outside the office. But some bars and pubs offer the perfect atmosphere for you to work in. Bars and pubs are great places to work thanks to the calm atmosphere, along with a great selection of food and drinks you can choose from.

5. College Campuses

Sometimes, going back to school is a great choice. Going back and doing your work in the campus where you once finished your studies not only brings back some of your fondest memories when you were younger, but it also gives you a quiet and calm place where you can be productive. Some college campuses also offer beautiful sights, with the occasional hustle and bustle of students and professors.

Key Takeaway

Working outside the office offers you a change of scenery, along with various amenities that make it feel comfortable. Working in different places may also help inspire you, and spark your productivity, which can improve the quality of your work. If you are having another dull day in the office, you can look into these places, and have a quality time doing work.

4 Reasons To Quit Your Job And Start Living Off Grid

by: Jeric Danao

Have you ever felt stuck in life and in a cycle of working just to pay bills? Off grid living may just be the solution to this problem. Here are 4 reasons why you should quit your job and start living off grid.

Be Your Own Boss

Even when you have reached the top of the corporate ladder and become the CEO of your own company, you will find that stress also climbs the ladder with you. You could end up having more responsibilities than you can control. This is not how you can be your own boss. Being your own boss means being able to live the way you want to; spending time with friends and family and going on vacation whenever you want to.

This is dream for many people stuck in the working class. But that is because they are tied down by the idea that they need money in order to live. The off-grid lifestyle has proven otherwise and many people have shown that it’s feasible. Chat with one of these brave individuals to ask them how they do it.

Debt Free Life

Debt is the biggest monkey that you have or could have on your back. You will find that it will force you to work for hours just to survive but not to live. People end up in endless cycles of paying rent and just getting by. This rent only gets larger as your needs become more dire, especially if you are taking care of a growing family.

However, you can avoid this if you can build a house that can run off the grid on a land that you own. There will be no debts to pay because no landlord can impose rent on you. All the money you earn could go to your passions and helping your family with their needs.

No Bills

While maintaining a good full-time job can pay the bills, do you really need to define your life by working just to pay bills until it’s time to retire? The reality is most jobs are like this and only a few find jobs that they truly enjoy. But the only problem is that electricity, housing, water, fuel and other needs are all provided by companies that you need to pay in order to get these needs.

There are alternatives to paying a company to provide these for you. Off the grid techniques include having a private source of water, disposing your own waste, and using solar panels and wind mills. All of these can help you to live without being tied down to paying companies monthly.

Sharpen Your Skills

While off the grid living may insinuate that you don’t need money anymore, this is not true; you still need to earn some to sustain yourself and your family. You don’t have to aim for a big income since your expenses will be very low.

Thus, you don’t need to have a job. In fact, you can earn just enough from your hobbies. This could be anything from busking to creating paintings and sculptures. Whatever it is, turn it into a living. Not only will be enough to get by, but you get to hone your skills in your passions.

Key Takeaway

The off the grid life means that you can cut your expenses such as debts and rent. Because of this you no longer need to be tied down to a job just to pay for bills and get stuck in that style. You can choose to stay at your job while living off the grid so that all the money you earn can go to your passions or quit your job and turn your passions into your means of life. Off the grid life gives you more time to do what you really want to do and spend your time more meaningfully.

The Benefits of Cardio for Mesothelioma Patients

by: Katherine Keys

Image from

When patients are diagnosed with mesothelioma, the cancer term saturates their minds. This disease is widespread across a huge population of former industrial workers. It can, however, be manageable when it's caught early on. In fact, patients can use exercise as a resource against cancer. Getting the heart pumping and the skin sweating is enough to fight off advanced cancers for several reasons.

Fewer Tissues to Support

When patients prioritize their health, weight loss is often the result. Healthy diets and workouts create a perfect storm for a lean physique. Cancer patients who have minimal fat tissue will see better results in recovery. The body concentrates its efforts on eradicating foreign tissues instead of supporting a heavy weight. Fewer fat cells also keep the body in better homeostasis or balance, which helps when patients are recovering from treatment.

It's important that the cardio makes the patient break a sweat. Rapid paces allow the body to burn fat faster than walking or jogging.

Immune System Boost

When a patient has early-stage cancer, treatments and lifestyle changes must be combined to fight off further illness. Working out several times a week gives the immune system a boost. As the person heats up and sweats, beneficial hormones move through the body. These hormones provide a "high" for the person, which indirectly boosts the immune system. Foreign cells might be readily destroyed compared to less ideal environments in a sedentary person.

Depending on the patient's medical state, working out should occur two or three times a week. Spreading out the exercises allows the body to recover, which helps it grow stronger against the invading cancer.

Hormonal Control

Although cancer patients want good hormones coursing through their bodies, other chemicals pose threats to recovery, reports the National Cancer Institute. Growth hormones, estrogen and other chemicals are naturally occurring in the body, but they can aggravate a cancer diagnosis. By working out, these hormones aren't as dominant in the body. Cancer patients benefit with the subtle changes at the molecular level, which ultimately control tumor growth. A rapidly growing tumor might meet its match when the body works out on a regular basis.

Energy Reserves

According to the National Institutes of Health, cardio workouts give patients more energy. Newcomers to the workout world might believe the opposite to be true, but a good session actually creates energy. Cancer patients feel invigorated and ready to take on the day. That overwhelming feeling of fatigue and weakness is almost nonexistent.

These energy reserves might be channeled to the immune system for an extra battle against cancer, or it gives the patient a positive mindset to face any other challenges. Every cancer patient wants to feel normal again, and additional energy is always a welcome side effect.

Mesothelioma patients may be concerned that cardiovascular exercise will hurt their recovery chances. They should speak to their doctors about their health and cardio possibilities. Patients might be surprised to hear that moderate cardio is actually recommended. Living with cancer is possible with support and regular workouts every day.

5 Tips On What To Do During A Dengue Outbreak

by: Jeric Danao

Dengue is a viral disease that is commonly transmitted by a biting mosquito-day; these mosquitoes live closely with people and they usually thrive in tiny amounts of stagnant water. When fully grown, they lay eggs in the water and the incubation period usually last from 4-10 days. When a person is afflicted with the dengue virus, they usually experience high fever for several days accompanied with a severe headache, muscle, joint, and eye pains. That's why people go out of their way to prevent dengue outbreaks from happening in their vicinity.

If you did not know what to do to prevent a dengue outbreak, then here are some tips to help you out:

# 1. Removing Water from Buckets and Pails

First thing to do is eliminate the places where they thrive in. If you have empty buckets and pails scatter around your house, then it's much better to turn them over so that they could not collect excess water and provide a place for mosquitoes to live in. If, in any case, you can not throw the water away from the pails and buckets, then make sure to put a lid on top of it and keep it tightly sealed.

# 2 Taking Care of Your Potted Plants

If you have empty flower pots laying around your house, then it's better to make sure they are turned over to avoid collecting excess water (like in # 1). And if you water your plant regularly, then make sure to not over-water them and cause excess water to build up on top of the soil, even if the soil will absorb it in a few days, it's better to be safe than sorry when having possible breeding grounds for mosquitoes around your house.

# 3 Using Mosquito Repellent on a Regular Basis

After clearing out possible breeding grounds for mosquitoes, it's time to keep them away from your home. Use mosquito repellent around the exposed areas of your house, apply it during the day and even at night. Commonly used mosquito repellents are chemically based, that's why use caution when using them because they may cause skin irritation and other complications; organic mosquito repellents are available in markets but they are quite pricey, that's why people opt for chemically based.

# 4. Preventing Dengue Coming from Inside Your House

Sometimes there exists mosquitoes that are determined to invade your home; they use the open entrances or holes in your house to gain access. Always remember to close doors and windows around the house and if you tend to leave your windows open, try installing a screen on the outer part to prevent them from coming inside. But if you already have screens installed, make sure they do not have holes, and if they do have holes, try to cover up the holes to not let any mosquitoes inside.

# 5. Remaining Eliminating Mosquitoes

Now, to eliminate the lingering mosquitoes around your home. The most commonly used way to eliminate them is by installing electric mosquito zappers around the house. These zappers use ultraviolet light to attract mosquitoes and the mosquito is when they get close enough lethally electrocuted. Using this machine is time efficient and easy to use; you just have to plug it in, and voila! You do not even lift a finger when eliminating mosquitoes.

Preventing mosquito outbreaks in your vicinity can not only help you but also the people around you. By reducing the amount of breeding areas, they have, they eventually end up dying by themselves or they look for new breeding spots. Always remember that preventing them from multiplying is keeping you and the people around you safe.
