In september there is something really exciting waiting for the individuals who like to get down and dirty. Already a very enjoyed event in the United States, it has now reached Down Under.
Prepare for Tough Mudder.
If you haven’t seen anything about this I urge you to check out www.toughmudder.com.au where you see a few video’s of the previous events held in the US. Tough Mudder is NOT a time race but far more designed as a team race. The course is designed by former military staff to bring you basic training in a nutshell.
Prepare to duck, dive, climb, fall and being electrocuted. Yes, electricity (10.000 volts) is one of the end obstacles you need to go through if you want to make the finish line. It is an amazing experience (at least I hope so) and the main “prize” which everyone gets is a Tough Mudder headband… exciting huh!
On the site there are a few video’s on how to prepare for your first Tough Mudder and the routine should not be taking lightly. The good news is that you have about 8 months to prepare as the event is going to be in September.
To make it easy for you I’ve added the schedule here:
The exercises are very straight forward and if you just starting to work out you can do a lot of these things at home as you probably don’t need weights to start off with. So no drama’s there.
But if you are really keen you obviously can try to do these things about 3 times a week, which is my personal aim.
Some tips on the Tough Mudder Training Schedule:
- Don’t try to do everything exactly, start off slow
- Alternate the routine. Start with running one day and end with running the other day. It keeps the routine fun and you get better at different exercises along the way.
- You have 8 months, so don’t go hardcore straight off the bat as you will hurt yourself
