Let’s take a look at the new and improved Augustus Gloop 2.0: a claustrophobia-inducing climb through high-pressure jets of water that you’ll find on a Tough Mudder course soon. These are the three Augustus Gloop exercises to help you conquer it.
You’ll need grip strength—not to mention the ability to put any fear of heights aside—to conquer this updated obstacle.
Intimidated? Don’t be. We’ve created a three-exercise, 21-15-9 workout (which you can do at home, in the gym, or at a Tough Mudder Bootcamp) that’ll help you develop the strength you need to scale Augustus Gloop 2.0.

A “21-15-9” is a CrossFit style workout that uses a 21, 15, 9 rep scheme. Essentially, you do each movement in the workout, with a fixed weight, for 21 reps, then 15 reps, then 9 reps, for time. This is a high intensity workout so you are trying to complete it in the quickest time possible while maintaining good form.
