Tough Mudder's 20 Most Badass Obstacles

Got the guts to enter? Presenting our Men's Fitness Survival Guide to Tough Mudder's most intense challenges — loaded with insider-approved strategies to get you through America's toughest obstacle course.

8. Funky Monkey

Bet you loved monkey bars when you were a kid. These bars? Probably not so much. Greased with a mixture of butter and mud, the Funky Monkey bars are set up for failure. Spaced a foot and a half apart, the bars sit at an upside-down “V” ascending for the first half and descending for the second. If your fingers can’t hold tight, you’ll plunge into an icy pool below.

Hint: If you keep your arms bent at a 90-degree angle and bicycle-kick your legs hard, you’ll be able to hold yourself up and might make it out alive.
