- Aim to work out about three days a week.

- Check out these stretches to ensure that you stay limber.

- Remember to pace yourself, and have fun!

4. Planks

Planks can help with stability and are simple to learn. Plus, they'll widdle away your core. You can do them flat on the floor or add a BOSU ball (right) to make it even more challenging.

5. Medicine Ball Sit-Ups

Using a medicine ball will help increase your range of motion and reach more muscles than a traditional floor sit-up. If you're looking for an extra challenge, hold dumbbells in your hands to add weight.

Grab a couple friends and do this core-widdling workout. It'll help you with running and jumping over obstacles, and your friends will help keep you motivated.

Jumping rope does wonders to help increase your endurance, which can put you ahead of the game in an obstacle race. Start yourself off with five minutes of jump roping.

12. Run

This one's simple, but most obstacle races have a running component. Schedule your runs three times a week, outside if possible, and be sure that you don't increase your distance by more than 10% each week.
