Whether you’re prepping for a Tough Mudder or Tough Mudder Half, getting start line ready can be intimidating. But contrary to what you’ve been told, you don’t need to run super long distances before hitting the course. To put the rumors to rest we created a brand-spankin new training page complete with 3 month, 2 month, and 1 month downloadable workout guides that’ll take all of the guesswork out of the game for you.
To spotlight our favorite workouts we enlisted Coach and E-Rock to create six videos explaining the benefits of each and the obstacles they’ll help you conquer.
First up is Coach’s Ultimate Tough Mudder Workout:
This is a total body circuit is designed to build endurance and strength. Mix this workout into your routine once a week to supplement your other creative training. If you’re following the guides, you’ll see this session worked into the calendars by default. If you are coming straight from the couch, begin with two rounds and work your way up to the full 5 rounds of fury.
Hit each round with intensity, and use the programmed rest to recover. Run fast, get outside your comfort zone, and get to the movement portion a bit gassed (this is meant to mimic the stresses on course). Use your Mudder mental grit to push through. During your rest go to your happy place, stay positive, (CALL UPON YOUR SPIRIT ANIMAL) and get prepared to do it all over.
