American Ninja Warrior Superstars Mighty Kacy Catanzaro and Brent Steffensen take Mud Run Guide's Brett Stewart on a tour of their "secret" training grounds, Alpha Warrior in San Antonio, TX. We test out the Salmon Ladder, Devil's Steps, Spider Wall, Warped Wall and more!
Here is the first episode of the OCR Video Blog from Matt "The Mudder" Willis. This week, we are covering a legendary obstacle from the American Ninja Warrior franchise: The Unstable Bridge.

We go inside the secret training grounds of American Ninja Warrior's superstar couple, Brent Steffensen and "Mighty Kacy" Catanzaro. During our time at Alpha Warrior, we get tips on the warped wall, ultimate cliffhanger, devil's steps, and of course the spider wall! Then, we check out CW-X at The Running Event to find out more about their newest compression gear.
The Spider Climb is another obstacle that's harder than it looks. Well-Trained Warrior's Evan Dollard shows us what it takes to climb up the walls. Get ready to do some handstand push-ups and military presses!
