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.
Forget ice baths for post-workout muscle relaxation. This frigid ice dumpster will shock your muscles into tense bricks. But suck it up, poise, and dive into this arctic-temperature ice pool.
