So you’ve training hard, you’ve built your upper body strength and improved your explosiveness. You’re ready to tackle one of our favorite obstacles on course and conquer Everest.
But being strong isn’t everything in the face of such an intense challenge, you’ll need bravery, brains and a few hands waiting to pull you to the summit. There are a few different tactics you can take to get to the top, but we’ve narrowed it down to 3 main points.
TOP 3 TIPS FOR CONQUERING EVEREST
It’s one of the most common question asked my first-time Mudders is “how do I get up Everest?” We won’t lie. It isn’t the easiest obstacle and it requires teamwork, but these three tips will help you get there.
1. PUMP YOUR ARMS
You’re going to need to build momentum, so start from as far back as possible and pump your arms and legs to really help you explode up the face of the obstacle and conquer Everest.
2. AIM FOR THE HANDS
Keep your eyes on the prize. The prize being other Mudders hands of course. When you jump you’re going to want to reach out and grab them, so make sure you know where you’re grabbing.
3. DON’T JUMP TOO EARLY
Almost everyone who fails on Everest makes this easy mistake. You need to jump at the very last possible minute, go any earlier and you’ll be sliding back down.
