A full-body workout that will prepare you for Tough Mudder’s most difficult obstacles sounds brutal, right? Well, today’s your lucky day, because we have a workout that will get you ready to conquer anything in your path—including Berlin Walls, sponsored by T-Rex Tape. Oh, and it only takes 10 minutes.
E-Rock, the Tough Mudder Bootcamp Program Director, will lead you through this kettlebell circuit which will destroy your entire body—in a good way. The workout is two rounds of 5 minute cycles—with a single, glorious minute of rest in between—which each contain 5 exercises. (Each exercise is performed for 45 seconds, followed by 15 seconds of rest):
Single Arm Bent Over Rows
Overhead Reverse Lunges
Sumo Deadlift High Pulls
Single Arm Thruster
Do one round with your right arm. Enjoy your minute off, because after that you’re doing it again with your left arm. Yes, it’s tough, but it’s not called an Easy Mudder, now is it? Start pushing yourself now and building up your physical and mental strength. You’ll need both to conquer obstacles like Berlin Walls—a 10’ tall behemoth that requires teamwork, strength, and power to get over.
So stop what you’re doing, grab a kettlebell, and get to work. If you do like E-Rock says and get a good sweat going, you’ll find yourself on the other side of the Berlin Walls in no time. And once you’ve started training, take a look at how our Tough Mudder Pro Team member Corinna Coffin, with tips from Coach, conquers it:
