Ashiq Sultan, organizer of the event said we need our whole body to work in coordination during an obstacle race. He recommends practicing animal flow to work on the various aspects of our body.
“There are obstacles like caterpillars and bear crawl that require core strength and coordination between limbs. I am a huge fan of animal flow workouts; it works very well for the biomechanics required in obstacle course races,” says Ashiq.

We are making an effort to promote this game everywhere in our state.
