Call me old school, but I still like my books in hard copy format, especially when it comes to fitness books with workout plans.  I like being able to flip back and forth through the pages, earmark things of value and reference the workout plan in the book.  However, that’s not everyone.  Some people prefer the convenience of digital.

Digital books provide instant access to the information on your phone, tablet or e-reader meaning you are always carrying around your library.  Due to personal preferences, I’ve resisted digital for long enough but have finally decided to publish the only book focused on endurance Obstacle Course Racing (OCR) on Kindle.

The digital version of Mud Run Guide’s Ultra-OCR Bible is now available exclusively from Amazon.  It is the same great book that’s still available in hard copy (if you’re old school like me) but now in a digital format.  If you don’t have an e-reader or tablet, don’t worry.  You can still download the Kindle app directly to your phone and read it from there.  If you are part of Kindle’s Unlimited program (like Netflix for books), you can even read the book for free right now.

The 276-page digital book is packed with training principles, three modular workout plans (beginner, intermediate and advanced), obstacle specific training tips/techniques, nutrition information, rest/recovery recommendations, suggested gear lists, brand recommendations for essential equipment and interviews with some of the best endurance OCR athletes in the sport including:

-5x WTM World Champion, Undefeated in Ultra-OCR (OCRs 5+ hours in length) since 2013 and arguably the best OCR athlete ever Ryan Atkins
-5x American Ninja Warrior Competitor and the only female to stand on the individual podium of both World's Toughest Mudder (WTM) and OCR World Championship Amy “Magic” Pajcic
-2016's World's Toughest Mudder Champion, 5x WTM Podium Finisher and Marine Corps Veteran Trevor Cichosz
-2017's Spartan Ultra-World Championship (Iceland) winner and Spartan Pro Morgan McKay
-Multiple Time WTM Podium Finisher and Spartan Pro Allison Tai
-Several Ultra-OCR World Records, 2018's WTM Team World Champion (Team Atomik) and Conquer The Gauntlet Pro Evan “Ultra-OCR Man” Perperis
-2018 WTM Team World Champion (Team Atomik), 2017 WTM Team 2nd Place (Team Merrell) and SISU Ironman Wesley “Dr. Redtights” Kerr
