Got 10 minutes—yes, just 10—to blast your whole body and build up the strength and power you’ll need to crush one of Tough Mudder’s most iconic obstacles? Yeah, we thought so.
E-Rock, the Tough Mudder Bootcamp Program Director, will lead you through this fast-paced, fat-blasting, full-body at-home medicine ball workout: Two rounds of 4 minute cycles that rotate through 5 exercises—with 1 measly ol’ minute of rest in between. (Don’t worry if you’re a beginner—E-Rock provides modifications for the moves.)
Toe Touches — 20
Push Ups — 10
Squat Jumps — 10
Medicine Ball Up and Overs — 10
Woodchop — 5 on each side
Repeat the 5-move sequence. That’s ONE round. Take a 1-minute rest, and repeat the whole thing again. Yes, it’s hard, but a Tough Mudder is, too—so harness that mental grit now, because you’ll need it on the course and especially on Everest 2.0, a 13-foot quarter pipe with a curved top that requires teamwork to complete, plus agility and explosive power.
So grab a medicine ball (or heck, a basketball, a sandbag, or whatever you can make work), and get sweating with E-Rock. Then check out these additional tips to help you train for and conquer Everest 2.0, and watch our Tough Mudder Pro Team members Hunter and Corinna, along with Coach, conquer the beast.
