Train Tough Training: The 8-Minute Agility Drills To Get You Moving Author: Tough Mudder June 20, 2018 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter If you ever feel like there’s lead in your shoes, it might be time to try some agility workouts. By taking just 8 minutes out of your day—yep, just 8 minutes—you’ll be nimble enough to breeze through the Tough Mudder course and its most challenging obstacles. Video of E64OqomwiaA E-Rock, the Tough Mudder Bootcamp Program Director, will lead you through this bodyweight agility workout that’s sure to get you sweating. The workout is broken down into 4 different cycles of 3 exercises, each of which targets a different body part or movement. Each cycle lasts 90 seconds, and E-Rock even lets you take 30 seconds of precious rest between sets. Here’s the breakdown (each exercise is to be performed for 30 seconds): Set 1 (Full Body) Jumping Jacks Windmill Toe Touches Pushups Set 2 (Lower Body) High Knees Lateral High Knees Lateral Quick Step Burpee Set 3 (Balance) Standing Toe Touches Reverse Lunges Reverse Lunge High Steps Set 4 (Upper Body) Plank Shoulder Taps Mountain Climbers Tuck Jumps If you’re not tired after that full-body workout, you weren’t trying hard enough. You’ll need to push through the pain, because that’s what you’ll be doing on the Tough Mudder course. If you don’t have enough mental fortitude, you won’t be able to conquer obstacles like Kong Infinity—an 18-foot high, 20-foot long Legionnaire-designed hand-over-hand barrel roll obstacle. We know you have 8 minutes to spare, so find some open space and get working. It’s going to be difficult, no doubt, but with E-Rock’s help and the right attitude, you’ll kick ass on the course.
