Spartans! Today we kick off our second weekly Q&A with our amazing Every Day Spartans! We have shared with you three episodes along the way of their epic adventure. We are excited to have Fran join us today to answer your questions you submitted. Welcome Fran!
Hey Spartans !!!! Happy and proud for stay here 😎🤙🤙
We are glad to have you here!! Our first question comes from Dmitry and he asks "How do you prepare and what do you bring to winter races?!"
oh, good question Dimitry, the first of all is in the previous days to be very good mentally about the cold you are going to go through, try to train in similar conditions, shower in cold water and above all prepare the food very well
Good advice Fran! Those cold showers can help prepare for sure! Dmitry also asked "What are everyday diet hints that help you feel ready and healthy for races?"

Good advice Frank! Those cold showers can help prepare for sure! Dmitry also asked "What are everyday diet hints that help you feel ready and healthy for races?"
It is also very important to advise you with professionals of what are the best clothes for these conditions and inform you in advance of the time you expect
Ana said "Dang! in the second episode we saw you lead the way up the mountain with Joe's kettlebell all by yourself for a length of time. Where do you get your strength and will power from?"
the diet is something quite personal, which is going well for me, maybe not for you, but what I always try is to eliminate processed sugar and unhealthy fats from the diet, in addition to the alcohol that has been shown to influence dryness of muscles and tendons
Ohhh, hahahaha thank's Ana, i don't know, for me the most important in the life is be happy, and for me when i training i'm very happy so maybe be happy makes me more strong 😂😂, and other thing very important in the life is an actitude, if have a good and positive actitud you can make everithing, doesn't mather if you are tired, if you are happy, smailing and enjoy the moment like if it's the last moment you found the power 💪
Great job on your diet Frank and well said as it take a great attitude! So, Paul loves your motorcycle and wants to know "What type of motorcycle are you riding in the video? What's your dream motorcycle?"
Thank's Paul !!! My motorcycle is my baby 😂😂 , it's a BMW K75 from 1982 ,it's modificated like a caferacer by myself, i like working with my hands and working customiced motorcycles it's my hooby, my dream it's driving my own Harley Davidson, for my is the most wonderful cycles 😎
That is awesome Frank! Marko wants to know if you can you tell us more about your experience with the monks and the waterfall? It looked so AMAZING!
Yes !!!!! That's a incredible experience, the monk are a very cool person and very friendly, in the waterfall ritual you feel the power of the water in you'r body and this is amazing, if can make it one time in you'r life MAKE IT !!!!
Hannah wants to know what did you find to be the most challenging part of the Everyday Spartan experience?
Thank's for you'r question Hannah, for my the last moment when arribed at the summit in the mont Fuji is the most challenging for me, it's very important stay at the summint when the sunrise for see this moment with my son's picture
What an incredible time! The most recent episode was full of so much emotion and it seemed like the team really started to become strong. Not all of us can climb a mountain, but do you have any tips for us to build teamwork like this in "everyday" life? - Kim
Thank's Kim. For my the most important thing is listenning others, worry about their problems and try to help, listen to stop to think what their fears can be and try to help them fight them, that is what makes a team work, we are people from different countries, cultures and languages but we manage to create the same from the love energy, that was through everyone's generosity of caring about each other, in the life is the same, be friendly with others, be polite and grateful, smile and try to make every person who comes to you be a happier one.
Great advice Frank! We have one last question for you and Tosik wants to know "Do you have any exercises you recommend for someone wanting to race a Spartan race?"
Yes !!! Thank's Tosik , i have the 3 Queens 👸👸👸 , Running, burpees and push up's , this is the best base for me, but if you want be more strong needed more complementary exercices, healthy lite and the most important ENJOY EVERY MOMENT !!!🕺💃

Thank you all for the interest, I am very happy to be part of such a healthy and friendly community. As I have said before, if I asked you what you are looking for in life, I am sure that you would all say "be happy" because it is possible friends, if you have a good attitude in life you can achieve it, as I say in life there are serious problems and issues to solve, the problem is that in the society we live in we confuse the issues to deal with the serious problems, so ask yourself if you really have those issues without problems and you will realize that not so fix them and move on with a smile!!!!! Your positive, friendly and polite attitude will open doors that were closed and will make more people happy. For me it would be an honor to have you all in my social networks so I invite you to follow @eltitofrank on Instagram, @ eltitofrank3 on Twitter and Fran Martinez on Facebook for informed callers of charity talks and events with the community, a giant hug to everybody
Thank you Frank! Great advice and we are glad to have you in our Spartan family! We appreciate your time today on our chat and we hope our followers enjoyed this as well! AROO!!! Thanks Frank!
Thank's Spartan family 🥰😘😘😘
